How training can move practices from good to great
How many times have you bought a fancy new gadget, set it up, and then sort of learned how to use it? Probably quite a few. But if you’re a medical practitioner and the “gadget” is your Electronic Health Record, “sort of” learning the system simply isn’t good enough.
New tools and techniques for the coronavirus fight
The coronavirus pandemic has affected just about everything in 2020. National Health Center Week (August 9-15) is an opportunity to focus on both the challenges that COVID-19 is posing for healthcare and some creative solutions.
Telehealth’s new prominence hints at more change ahead
The thing about boundaries is that you never quite reach them. In healthcare, for example, new technology — or a novel application of old technology — always opens new possibilities.
Reclaiming the nation’s medical heritage
For many years, medicine throughout the United States was an intensely local and personal matter. Doctors established long-term relationships with individuals and families, often treating multiple generations, providing cradle-to-grave care that was built on understanding, engagement, and personal knowledge of patients’ needs.
Recently, we went live with a podcast regarding eClinicalWorks Day, a free educational and networking event located in various cities across the U.S. In this episode, we visit with several of the 200 attendees at the Tampa, Fla., location. We learn about their favorite aspects of these training and demo sessions, including how to achieve Meaningful Use and seeing the latest product enhancements.
Our newest podcast episode is the first in a series focused on how Florida’s Community Health Centers, Inc., has demonstrated improved outcomes using electronic health records. Its mission is to provide quality and compassionate primary healthcare services to Central Florida’s diverse communities.
A desire for more coordinated care has led to the advancement of accountable care organizations (ACO) and similar models. These organizations have set out to improve the delivery of healthcare, while reducing costs and leveraging evidence-based care to collaborate with care teams and patients. At the forefront this movement is Minnesota’s Children’s Health Network (CHN), where we visited for our final Season One episode. We joined Chad Johnson, CEO, Dave Overman, President and COO of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minn., and Dr. Kelly Lemieux, Pediatrician with Wayzata Children’s Clinic and chair of clinical operations for CHN to discuss the benefits of population health technologies, like CCMR, and their ability to enhance care.
It is hard to believe that eCW Podcast has produced almost an entire first season. For this episode, host Adam Siladi talks with Dr. Mark McNeill of Trillium Family Medicine about how utilizing the Patient Portal has improved his practice by reducing tedious tasks, while helping him see more patients. Filmed at the 2014 eClinicalWorks National Users Conference, Dr. McNeill mentions how his patients take advantage of the convenience of booking appointments online. He explains how he primarily runs the entire practice’s workflow through the portal by sending messages, booking appointments, viewing lab results and sending both general and appointment reminders. The system also assists Dr. McNeill during patient visits, with reminders notifying him of questions he must ask his patients.
