With products in varying stages of development, the acute care EMR space is one of the most interesting in healthcare, according to a KLAS report which seeks to answer key questions and dispel misconceptions.
After years of false starts and unfulfilled promises, are we finally turning the corner when it comes to interoperability? KLAS’ Coray Tate reflects on the development that might be a game-changer.
Although cybersecurity and patient engagement are certainly high on the list, Trivergent Health’s top priority in 2017 is to stay true to the mission of deploying technologies that help caregivers, says CIO David Quirke.
Perhaps no sector of the EMR market is attracting as much interest as acute care, and in particular, two vendors that have recently entered the fray and could prove game-changers, says KLAS’ Erik Bermudez.
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.
From athenahealth to Epic, Kent Gale applies KLAS’ transparency lens to look at the success provider organizations have achieved in sharing records with others who have the same EHR vendor.
