2021 National Conference: Opening a New Chapter in Healthcare IT

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 10/26/21 10:24 AM

The future is full of data

It’s safe to say that no one knows what to do with 2,314 exabytes of new data. According to statistica.com, that is roughly the amount of new healthcare data generated worldwide in 2020.

But no one has to. After all, the EHR and related systems have given the thousands who work in healthcare the tools they need to stem the data tide.

But there’s a catch: Only a networked EHR is up to the job.

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.

SMART on FHIR: How Apps Are Shaping Healthcare’s Future

Harnessing technology to meet human needs

In 1969, microbiologist René Dubos won the Pulitzer Prize for “So Human an Animal,” an eloquent exploration of how technology must respect the uniqueness and value of human lives.

“Like the evolutionary development of mankind, the experiential development of each individual person consists in an integrated series of responses to environmental stimuli,” Dubos wrote. “In most situations, the effects of the total environment on the body and the mind must therefore be interrelated.”

The Infinity Gauntlet of Healthcare Interoperability

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 8/26/21 11:59 AM

Interoperability: Are we there yet?

Without effective interoperability, practices can be stuck in the past. Today, health information needs to move quickly among physicians' offices and hospitals. The goal of interoperability is to allow this health information to flow securely among practices and facilities nationwide.

Maybe you’ve heard of Marvel’s Avengers film series? Even if you haven’t watched them, we promise, no spoilers! To power the Infinity Gauntlet and change the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the supervillain Thanos needed to place the Infinity Stones into their proper places. Interoperability is as multifaceted as the Infinity Gauntlet – requiring multiple attributes that, when put together, have the power to change healthcare.
