Designed to provide interoperable data for healthcare systems, FHIR interoperability leader 1upHealth has developed a system that connects providers and patients from over 10,000 healthcare facilities, bridging the gap between patient data and provider needs. One of the biggest issues in the medical community is the fact that patient data has been isolated in various Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.

EHR systems used for large networks for healthcare delivery today are quite often seen as being far from user-friendly. They are viewed as being far from flexible and costly in their configuration. Sometimes referred to as monolithic, EHR are almost always purchased from vendors and they require a vast amount of time, budget, and consulting assistance before they can be deployed, supported, and optimized.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a US federal law that was enacted in 1996.

And while the hits may be fine for music, clinicians need more than the ‘hits’ to fully understand and diagnose their patients.

During the Q&A period after a presentation I gave recently on understanding and preventing physician burnout, a physician in the audience voiced her vehement objections to the current electronic health record (EHR) with a simple statement: “We need a revolution.” In a few words she described her frustrations with the EHR. “It is meaningless—full of fields that we cut and paste from other fields.

A good practice management solution is just like an oracle for your office. Often, companies get confused when it comes to buying an electronic practice management solution or system. They get confused because there are 2 types of practice management systems; there are bundled EMRs and then there are 2 interfaced systems.

In their survey, Black Book revealed that 70% of clinicians indicated their willing to use mobile Electronic Health Records (EHRs) devices and software by the end of 2015. What were the main outcomes of the survey? The survey had some interesting outcomes. 52% of practice physicians currently access patient records and/or reference data from a mobile device. Only 31% of physicians utilize smart phones as part of their individual patient management strategies. Emergency physicians, radiologists, OB/GYN,...
