INFOGRAPHIC: Patient Portals – 7 Features the Market is Demanding

When it comes to patient portals most provider organizations are focused on meeting the Meaningful Use requirements rather than creating a patient portal that truly engages their patients. While healthcare organizations have been making steady progress towards Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2 attestation, the lack of patient engagement continues to be problematic. Creating a patient […]

I spent some time yesterday with our friends at Oracle in the company’s #HIMSS15 booth exploring how technology enables the patient journey from the moment they learn about a hospital or physician practice to their life cycle of care.

#HIMSS15: Can Real-Time Intelligence Equal Lower Cost?

I’m learning lots at HIMSS this week. One of the sessions I attended examined how real-time intelligence can reduce the cost of care. At first blush, I thought it would be about real-time “analytics,” but I was incorrect. What I found was an M.D. talking about actionable cost accounting. Kind of a nice change, I’d […]

#HIMSS15 Hot Topic: Remote Patient Monitoring and Big Data

I’m learning lots at HIMSS this week about remote patient monitoring. I’m very interested in the subject of harvesting data from patient monitoring devices and mashing it up with structured data about patients.

#HIMSS15: Reducing Readmissions with Post Discharge Text Messages

Today I had the good luck to happen upon a #HIMSS15 session entitled “Improve Patient Engagement, Lower Readmissions with #mHealth.” I thought that was a bold statement to make on behalf of #mHealth.

At the end of the day, in my opinion, science is the basis for improving the […]

Population Health: A Hot Topic At #HIMSS15

I wrote a blog a couple of weeks ago about patient-powered research and I want to follow it up with a focus on population health. Population health efforts are intensely data-driven and require more data than is captured between the walls of hospitals or clinics. I’m working on an initiative right now to plan out […]
