How Flexibility in Data Standards can Support Interoperability in Healthcare

If there’s one thing that becomes quickly apparent when working in healthcare IT, it’s that the concept of “data standards” are all over the place. Sure, there are established formats and languages that allow for meaningful communication between EHRs, devices, organizations, etc. But when it comes to real life integration and pursuing true healthcare interoperability, a health system’s ability to deal with, and even ingest various data standards (however textbook or not they may be), makes all...

The Importance of Logistics for Epic Go-Live Support

It’s no surprise that the roster for any given Epic implementation team is largely project and technical savvy resources.

The Value of Automated Testing in Healthcare IT

If there was one aspect to healthcare IT integration and implementations that insiders would likely point to as not getting nearly enough respect, it’s testing. From functional testing to end-to-end validation, proper testing of healthcare solutions can make or break any given deliverable (sometimes quite literally). After all, the use case of an application for hospitals or health systems isn’t just moving data from point A to point B -- or rather, provider A to provider B -- but to ensure...

EHR Interfaces: Pursuing More than Data for Data’s Sake

The challenges associated with connecting multiple, disparate EHR systems -- be it ancillary provider or private clinic to hospital or health system, or any combo therein -- are not to be taken lightly. Every data point in healthcare IT represents a potential decision-point that, in error or omission, has significant implications for patient outcomes.

Developing Engaging Content for EHR Training Materials

We’ve previously shared some tips for delivering the best Epic training in the healthcare IT space, but as the devil is in the details, we’re going to focus in on EHR training materials.
