Value-based care is a critical goal, but one that can be complex to operationalize. And yet, it is well worth striving to achieve. Getting there requires a connected healthcare system that does not yet fully exist. I recently collaborated with colleagues and the American Medical Informatics Association to co-author a paper detailing this gap—the chasm between our current health IT ecosystem and the ecosystem that we need to solidify—a crack that must be closed if true value-based care and a learning health system are to be realized.
The fields of healthcare and life science are experiencing massive change, due to economic, policy and technological factors. At their core, the shifts center around the pursuits of precision medicine and value-based care.
EHR adoption rates are nearing 100 percent, yet we see a steady stream of headlines reporting dissatisfaction. Physicians are demanding more from EHRs—and patients want more, too. While there is ample opinion on the current effectiveness of EHRs, we can all agree that EHRs have room to improve. Looking ahead, we envision four key ways in which EHRs could do more and further advance quality of treatment and care.
It’s time to bridge the gap with Avec® and experience discovery at unprecedented speeds.
As CMO, Dr. Embi works across the organization to ensure our technologies address the driving issues and challenges of both researchers and physicians.
"We’re providing physicians and researchers the ability to view, analyze and experiment with aggregated data from disparate sources on a global scale. If there’s any way that we can improve on that process, and increase our clients’ speed of discovery, we are going to do it," said CEO John Raden.
The search for true interoperability can be time consuming, frustrating, and confusing. Wide claims are often made about data integration solutions, only to later find they aren’t truly interoperable—and the chatter at HIMSS will be no different. The best way to ensure a satisfying conference experience is to pull the plug on the propaganda and get prepared.
Cut through the clutter by using the three C’s of true interoperability as your guide: care, collaboration and cost.
