When lives are put in danger and treatment is denied due to the lack of a unified patient identification, it’s time for action, says Liz Johnson, who talks about the progress that has been made, and what still needs to happen.
If leaders only address the technology component – or the human component – without successfully marrying the two, patient matching will remain a pipe dream, according to CIOs Michael Martz and Albert Oriol.
“The work we do in public policy is so important, because we can drive substantial change,” says CIO Theresa Meadows, who talks about the value of advocacy, the biggest challenges in cybersecurity, and why Meaningful Use was a game-changer.
“We need to be able to present data in a way that patients can use it and understand it,” says Liz Johnson, who was recognized at the CHIME19 Fall Forum for her unwavering dedication to improving care through advocacy and education.
When your mission is to drive change, there are inevitably going to be setbacks. What sets successful organizations apart, says CHIME CEO Russell Branzell, is the ability to stay the course and find a way to move forward.
