There’s no question as to why social determinants should be incorporated into the care picture. The questions, according to Mike Davis, are around how to do it in the most effective ways possible.
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.
Before providers think about replacing or rebuilding their EHR, perhaps they should determine whether the current system is being used to its optimum capacity, says Mike Davis.
If we want to get an accurate read on how EHRs impact physician satisfaction and efficiency, we need to take several factors into account, including whether the tools have been personalized, says Mike Davis.
As care extends further the hospital walls, the need increases to convert traditional IT support from help desk services to proactive rounding services, says Mike Davis of KLAS.
