The valuable asset you already have: Your EHR data

A recent survey by Accenture reveals adoption of Electronic Health Record (EHR) software and Health Information System (HIE) is rising in the United States. Despite the fact that most doctors agree implementing an EHR system does not reduce their operational costs, they are embracing the technology because it has helped them make better decisions and has led to fewer medical errors.

Another survey reveals that almost 50-60% of US physicians are using some sort of electronic medical record software to help them in their practice workflows. With such huge data available, physicians can actually put it to good use and make informed decisions. Using key patient information such as demographics, allergies, gender, age group, family history and other illnesses, a physician can help improve the quality of care and clinical performance.

Let’s discuss a few more ways through which you can make good use of available data and position yourself for upcoming value-based reimbursements. Read more

EHRs and Pay-for-Performance

EHRs and Pay-for-Performance: The way forward for Primary Care?

Ever since the Affordable Care Act of 2009, EHRs have been in the headlines of the healthcare industry. By now you probably know that questioning the need for such systems is redundant as they’re here to stay and, moreover, those who have used these systems properly have seen significant productivity and revenue boosts.

Are You Ready for #HIMSSanity?

The Oscars of Health IT, as my boss likes to call it, is less than a week away. I personally believe HIMSS is more like the Golden Globes; you actually get to party while working and networking with your peers rather than being suffocated with lame jokes and an air of formality which pretty much sums up the Oscars. Anyways, I digress.
