Patient Histories: The Key to Quality Care

Posted by Dr. Robert Fried, CMIO, Eagle Physicians on 7/19/19 5:30 PM

The idea of interoperability in healthcare IT isn’t new, but there’s still confusion and misunderstanding regarding what interoperability really is.

At a basic level, interoperability means sharing data between disparate programs. But asking another practice or hospital for patient records isn’t true interoperability. Nor is logging into their system to retrieve those records.

True interoperability is when patient information can be sent electronically to the EHR.

How a health information search engine can help overcome physician burnout

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 12/4/18 9:00 AM

The internet can seem endless. From exactly one website in 1991, it has grown to an estimated 1.67 billion websites, according to Netcraft’s October 2018 Web Server Survey.

Although only about 15% of those sites are active, it’s still virtually impossible for most internet users to quickly find the information of most value to them. Fortunately, search engines scour the internet to find, organize and present relevant information. According to Internet Live Stats, Google processes over 3.5 billion searches daily — 1.2 trillion searches annually worldwide.
