By limiting the number of consultants they used while implementing Epic, VHC was able to not only save costs, but also develop in-house talent that will benefit them down the road, says CIO Mike Mistretta.
It’s no longer enough simply to measure data, says Adam Gale. Now, KLAS is taking a more proactive approach by working with vendors to step up their game and “change the market in a healthy way.”
As regulatory requirements mount and the “unblinking eye of the monitor” demands more attention from physicians, the eye contact that was once a key part of patient care is being broken, says Dr. David Bensema. So how can it be fixed?
We have to be careful when we accuse vendors (or any organization, for that matter) of data blocking, says Chuck Christian, who believes it’s much more complicated than just refusing to cooperate.
One of the most important things Chuck Christian has learned from speaking with physicians? “If you can present data in a manner and process that fits into their workflow, they’re more apt to use it.”
