As digital technologies become more pervasive, patients won’t just want to easily access visit notes; they’ll expect it, says KLAS’ Mike Davis, who breaks down the different approaches used to share data from healthcare encounters.
When it comes to selecting a patient engagement solution, healthcare organizations shouldn’t necessarily look to large vendors, says Mike Davis, but rather, tools that “provide assistance and guidance through all phases of care,” and are user-friendly.
Although hospitalists can provide a high level of care, there’s one area in which they fall short: having a deep knowledge of the patient, says Dr. Craig Joseph. In this piece, he discusses how health IT might help close the gap.
Organizations that leverage data to provide a customized patient experience can distinguish themselves in what is becoming a crowded market, says Anupam Goel, CHIO at UnitedHealthcare Clinical Services.
As digital tools continue to influence behaviors and market trends, participatory medicine needs to take center stage, says Sue Schade, sharing what she learned from a memorable presentation at the recent New England HIMSS event.
