PODCAST: Hospitals Challenged with Connecting with Physician EHRs; Solution Launching at HIMSS 2017
In the following podcast interview, Buff Colchagoff, CEO of RosettaHealth, discusses a new Black Book report, which shows how 70 percent of hospitals found that data from outside providers is missing from their systems' workflows, and much more.
A new report from Black Book Market Research highlighted some sobering statistics when it comes to the ongoing challenge of exchanging electronic health record (EHR) information for hospitals.
The study uncovered that 70 percent of hospitals found that provider data is missing from their EHR systems' workflow. In addition, 41 percent of hospital administrators are still finding challenges in exchanging electronic health record information with other providers overall.
The report also highlighted how physician groups continue to “lack the financial and technical expertise to adopt complex EHRs, which are now compulsory to attain higher reimbursements by public and private payers.”
In the podcast, Buff Colchagoff talks about how Meaningful Use was a starting point in terms of sharing health data, and how now, tools are emerging to make ubiquitous connectivity a reality.
At HIMSS 2017, RosettaHealth is introducing its new “Access Everywhere” initiative, which breaks down all barriers to effectively share health data – allowing anyone on any system to create sharing networks, or access other networks. This new suite of products fills in all of the data sharing gaps, especially when it comes to the community care setting.
