So, your hospital or medical group has just spent a ton of money on a HIS or EMR. No doubt, in this time of ARRA HI-TECH and “meaningful use” it is the prudent thing to do. Now what? You see, digitizing health information is just the start of the journey in transforming health and healthcare. There is much more to do. In fact, the real game changer doesn’t lie with the electronic medical record. The game changer is how we use that digital information to improve care quality, cost, efficacy, and access. An important, if not the most important, opportunity is to use information technology to improve work flow efficiency, especially around core communication and collaboration capabilities. With such technologies in place, leading healthcare organizations are able to dramatically improve care coordination. And if you have any imperative to prepare your hospital or clinic for “accountable care”, such coordination is essential.
Whether your organization is working to meet the government’s meaningful use requirements or you need a better system for connecting with referring physicians and patients, finding an IT solution to address care coordination issues is probably one of your most pressing issues.
To improve coordination of care, more and more healthcare organizations are enabling their care teams to work from the same, complete patient health information. They are working to ensure that such information is appropriately shared with the right stakeholders over time and across facilities and practitioners.
