    The variability of the EHR capabilities makes it more complex for large health systems to design a cohesive notification system. Using open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), Northwell Health designed a solution that enables clinicians to see patient event notifications within their electronic health record (EHR) workflow, which enables better care coordination.

    Patient portals are essential communication tools for many providers and patients today. For example, more than 9.3 million patients have accounts through the Allscripts FollowMyHealth® patient engagement platform. But a recent Nielsen survey found that the majority of Americans are not using digital technology to access their physicians – which is unlike how we approach other aspects of our lives, such as banking or making travel arrangements.

  • Redefining the paradigm for health IT interfaces

    September 30, 2016

    Electronic health records (EHRs) are the backbone of health IT infrastructure, but they can’t be all things to all people.

    To provide the best quality care, clinicians need detailed information about a patient’s medical history and status. They need to know existing information is correct, and also about new details in patients’ lives that could affect their care. Some days, I’m organized and build in time to prepare for upcoming appointments. I may be able to go to an online site and complete the updates and information necessary for my visit in advance.

    June 23, 2016

    When there’s a customer support issue – with our cell phones, cars, banking or online shopping – the answers are not always on a website or app. Sometimes we want or need to call. The experience can quickly get exasperating if we’re transferred multiple times, repeating account information, security questions or other information. Based on previous experiences, there are companies I don’t mind calling for an issue, and those I never want to speak to again. Read more…
