Having a model that includes both a care delivery system and a health plan not only benefits patients, it also offers vendors a unique partnership opportunity, says CIO Jeff Brown.
Perhaps no sector of the EMR market is attracting as much interest as acute care, and in particular, two vendors that have recently entered the fray and could prove game-changers, says KLAS’ Erik Bermudez.
The 2015 KLAS interoperability research did a great deal to dispel misperceptions and rumors and bring to light how individual vendors are performing, says Kent Gale. But it wouldn’t have been possible without a handful of “passionate industry leaders.”
Now that it’s been established that there is no interoperability villain, it’s time to get some real answers, says Kent Gale, who discusses his thoughts on perception versus reality, and what KLAS has planned next.
