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.
Although physicians make most of the key decisions that show up in the EMR, they’re not the only ones with skin in the game, says KLAS’ Mitchell Josephson, who shares what KLAS has learned about the workflow habits and preferences of nurses.
