While the healthcare market is always going to be fraught with some level of uncertainty, there are reasons to be optimistic, particularly in areas like precision medicine, says Jared Jeffery of KLAS.
At a surprisingly large number of organizations, the majority of end users believe the EMR enables quality care, rather than inhibiting, according to KLAS research. So what are these organizations doing?
Although the industry still faces significant challenges in key areas like interoperability and usability – and relief often feels light years away – it’s important to remember that “monumental changes don’t happen overnight,” says Jared Jeffrey.
As much as many of us would like to stop talking about interoperability, we’re just not there yet, says Jared Jeffery of KLAS. What we can do, however, is shift the conversation.
When it comes to driving adoption of population health tools, features like single sign-on and the ability to integrate with multiple platforms are just the basics, says KLAS’ Jared Jeffery.
