The Three T's: How to Successfully Navigate Your EHR Implementation

E-mail Print PDF

Team. Tactics. TechnologyTeam. Tactics. Technology, the key dos and don'ts of implementation are organized into these three categories. Team refers to people and organizational issues, tactics to specific techniques and choices made in design and setup, and technology to the software, hardware and network choices you will make. Many implementation issues are common to large and small practices alike. Yet large practices, perhaps due to their complexity, tend to suffer more from team issues, and small practices, perhaps due to their more limited resources and experience, tend to falter when it comes to technology issues. Any size practice can crash and burn when it comes to tactics.

What accounts for the difference? Is it a problem with the people, the process or the EHR product? How are large-practice implementations different than small-practice ones? How can you fortify yourself against failure and plan for success? Keep reading for some answers....

Performance Measures Using Electronic Health Records: Five Case Studies

E-mail Print PDF
commonwealth fundThe emergence of the electronic health record (EHR), also termed the electronic medical record, has made new indicators of quality and safety both necessary and feasible. By developing appropriate indicators now, we can integrate them into evolving EHR systems early on rather than try to add them after the fact—a much more difficult task. This report, from the commonwealth fund, examines the experiences of five provider organizations in developing, testing, and implementing such indicators, based on data collected from their EHR systems.

The BioWindows? Cancer Analysis and Prevention Project

E-mail Print PDF

Iris BioTechnologiesIris BioTechnologies is launching BioWindows™, a diagnostic and prognostic system that determines the most appropriate therapy based on genomic, family history and extensive lifestyle information for the major diseases affecting the industrialized world. Scientists are providing the genes involved in disease and Iris is providing the technologies to quickly and accurately interpret the genes behaviors.

21st Century medicine needs a major overhaul to meet our needs but the system needs our help. Disease is a result of the interaction of our genome and the environment that surrounds it - Nature and Nurture. Without good, solid information about your personal environment physicians are less effective in delivering care especially when it comes to the many varieties of cancer. Our technology will deliver the genome but you will need to personally deliver the rest.
