From relaxing the Stark Law to reducing the burden on clinicians, Dr. John Halamka identifies the five biggest healthcare IT policy priorities for 2020 in this recap of our recent webinar.
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.
As technology evolves and user expectations grow, CIOs are looking for more from HIE vendors that the ability to exchange patient records. In fact, that’s becoming the baseline, says Coray Tate, who shares findings from KLAS’ interoperability report.
Rather than focusing only on what hasn’t been accomplished, it’s important to recognize all that has, says Steven Posnack, who talks about what motivates him, what the future looks like, and what he has learned from his mentors.
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.
