Blog & White Papers Address Top Concerns in Patient Care and Data Analytics
February 15, 2016 [Conshohocken PA] — InfoMC, a leading provider of cloud-based healthcare management and care coordination software since 1996, has launched two new industry communication tools designed to identify and explore in-depth current and emerging challenges and opportunities in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare environment.
The white paper, Why Electronic Health Records are Ill-Suited for Population Health, appeared in the February edition of the Healthcare Solutions Showcase from FierceHealthPayer (fiercehealthpayer.com), an online news service program focused on the fast-changing and heavily regulated area of healthcare reimbursement with more than 38,000 subscribers.
The white paper, authored by Susan Norris, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Clinical Solutions for InfoMC and Allen S. Daniels, Ed.D., Clinical Director for InfoMC, takes a deep dive into the limitations of electronic health records (EHR) systems to track, access, and share health information documented outside of the clinical systems they support. The paper advocates for a care coordination approach to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs, and stipulates that effective care coordination is only achieved when technology addresses the existing gaps in patient care. In a side-by-side comparison of EHRs and Health Management Systems, the paper identifies the key functionality and operational efficiencies required to close the data sharing gaps across multiple provider systems, and establish workflows that direct and support the full spectrum of healthcare, social systems, and others who care for individuals.
InfoMC has also launched a health information technology blog, InfoMC Spotlight, for review and commentary on emerging trends, challenges and opportunities in the rapidly evolving healthcare marketplace. The first post, responds to a recent article in HealthLeaders Media identifying four priorities for healthcare payers in 2016. The post, “Effective Technology Solutions for Emerging Healthcare Priorities,”addresses each priority with a brief analysis of the underlying problem and recommends the type of technology infrastructure and capacity needed to successfully meet current and future demand.
InfoMC Spotlight posts and published white papers are also available for viewing or download at InfoMC News and Events.
