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.
Clinically-led projects — “We’re being totally transparent and inclusive.”
Power of executive sponsorship
“Leadership all the way down is committed.”
From Allscripts to athenahealth in ambulatory
Analytics initiative with Optum — “It will give us a clear picture.”
The CIO’s challenge — “Projects don’t stop.”
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.
Interoperability doesn’t require moving mountains, but it’s going to take goal-oriented interaction among all parties, say Jonathan Bush and John Halamka, who share their thoughts on one of the biggest topics in health IT.
