In an effort to create a “better understanding of the fundamentals” of healthcare, as well as its inner workings, Dirk Stanley, MD, has put together a “tour.” In second of a two-part series, he walks readers through the clinical enterprise areas.
Healthcare has been around for a long time, and yet, there’s no suitable introduction to the field, says Dr. Dirk Stanley, who has taken up the task. In first of a two-part series, he provides a tour of the administrative, academic/educational and research areas.

When you’re dealing with not one, but four complex workflows – as is the case with lumbar punctures – it’s imperative to create an order set that helps reduce clicks while improving utilization, accuracy and yield, says CMIO Dirk Stanley.
Although they are a mainstay of modern healthcare, building lumbar punctures electronically can be challenging, says Dirk Stanley, MD, who discusses the four most common workflows and how they can optimized.
