This whitepaper serves as a guide to identifying an under-performing EHR and replacing it with a solution that delivers results. It offers answers to a number of common questions about EHR adoption and replacement and demonstrates how the right EHR can help practices get more money and more control, freeing up physicians to focus on patient care.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are necessary, but were not designed to anchor population health management (PHM). This is partly because they lack semantic interoperability, which is the ability of disparate information systems to share data and enable communications among users in a meaningful way.
This paper explains how an approach that includes a care collaboration platform can manage population health by aggregating and normalizing the necessary data.
Electronic health records are changing the face of patient record-keeping. No longer are doctors’ offices repositories for large, bulky, paper-based patient files—those have been replaced by computer-based files accessible to authorized people simply by logging on to the office’s network.
Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems
are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.
