KLAS’ goal in examining the digital health investment market? To shine a light on “the invisible hand of the market” and create a higher level of transparency, says Kent Gale.
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.
Whether it’s due to a lack of resources or an unwillingness, providers aren’t proactively sharing data at the rate they need to. So what’s it going to take to get information flowing, and when will penalties start to play a role? Kent Gale of KLAS shares his thoughts.
Epic has been perceived to be the most difficult vendor to connect with — does that perception match reality, or is it another case of misinformation leading the way? Kent Gale of KLAS explores this big question.
When providers took to their ballots to vote for the easiest and most difficult vendors to connect with when sharing outside patient data, how did some of the big players rank? Kent Gale of KLAS shares some interesting results.
The gulf between what users expect in terms of interoperability and what is being delivered remains significant, but the good news is that vendors are taking steps in the right direction, says Kent Gale of KLAS.
From athenahealth to Epic, Kent Gale applies KLAS’ transparency lens to look at the success provider organizations have achieved in sharing records with others who have the same EHR vendor.
Three years after the big announcement, what do vendors and providers realistically expect from the CommonWell Health Alliance, and what still needs to happen? Kent Gale discussess KLAS’ findings.
Collaboration leaders and vendors often present a connectivity image that is clearer than what users actually see. So what’s the real picture when it comes to interoperability? KLAS’ Kent Gale sheds some light.
