The Power of Search in Healthcare and Beyond

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 9/14/21 3:16 PM

From a thought to reality

The idea that a search could save a life sounds like just that – an idea. Yet that dream has now become a reality. People today can now ask a question and get results almost instantaneously. But it wasn’t always that way.

Theorists like Vannevar Bush were dreaming up ways of creating an associative memory storage and virtual retrieval system as far back as the 1940s. But it wasn’t until the early 1990s that the first search engine got off the ground.

Even today, scientists debate the placement of certain elements and continue efforts to catch a glimpse, however brief, of “new” elements.

The Promise of a New EHR: Why Practices Switch

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 7/31/20 11:36 AM

Switching EHRs can be time-consuming and expensive, but practices continue to seek better healthcare IT. An EHR should provide comprehensive documentation, the latest interoperability, tools for Patient Engagement and Population Health, in-depth data analytics, tools that promote safety when trying to reduce the number of in-person visits, and effective Revenue Cycle Management.

Given how few EHRs meet all those criteria, it is not surprising that 62% of practices have switched EHRs at least once.

How Leaders Establish Organizational Success

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 10/11/19 5:00 PM

British economist Ronald Coase, honored with a Nobel Prize in Economics in 1991, often wrote about the structure of organizations. One of his chief insights was that as the transactional costs of achieving specific goals increases, it makes sense to create organizations to meet those goals.

Coase’s idea is familiar to every medical practice that has gone from paper to Electronic Health Records. Tasks once done manually, at great cost and effort, can now be done electronically, cheaply, and automatically.

But Coase’s insight goes still deeper. Even in our information age, many businesses respond to new challenges with old techniques — they work harder and longer. When they fall short of their goals, they assume they aren’t working hard enough.
