Although voice recognition solutions have traditionally focused on billing support, the real value of the technology lies in quickly extracting data for care visits, which can free clinicians from the workstation, says Mike Davis.
The market for practice management tools may be filled with legacy products, but it doesn’t mean vendors can’t evolve their strategies, says Aaron Gleave, who shares findings from a recent KLAS report.
Although there was a significant difference between what physicians and nurses identified as the keys to EHR user satisfaction, perhaps the most compelling finding of a recent Arch Collaborative was an issue they agree on, says Connor Bice.
It’s not functionality that’s going to sell health IT leaders on RTLS, but rather the potential it has to help achieve outcomes – like improved patient safety and data visibility, says Tanya Egbert of KLAS.
The fact that most EHR vendors are connected to Carequality and/or CommonWell is certainly a step in the right direction, but if the data can’t easily be consumed and incorporated into workflows, it simply isn’t a far enough step, says Coray Tate.
