Check out this interesting Q & A on electronic health record compliance:
"Yet compliance, whether with a medication, a procedure preparation or a treatment regimen of any sort, is vital to a successful outcome. As doctors, we are using the same communication methods with our patients that we were using 30 years ago - pieces of paper and verbal instruction."
Doctors and Documents.
You know the issues.
Check out this interesting article on problem:
""Until (mobile health) information is intelligently managed, which requires high-intensity human oversight, which to date we have been unwilling to program or to pay for, we will continue to have only what our current technology provides: A vast and unmanageable amount of uncontrolled, non-vetted and non-meaningful information (classically described for the last 40 years in technology systems as 'garbage in = garbage out)," the study quoted one physicians as saying."
What happens next?
"This new program encourages the development of standards, best practices, measurement of safety and usability that can be tested at a public-private Health IT Safety Center that would "convene stakeholders in order to focus on activities that promote health IT as an integral part of patient safety with the ultimate goal of assisting in the creation of a sustainable, integrated health IT learning system that avoids regulatory duplication and leverages and complements existing and ongoing efforts." Search for the word "usability" in the report and you'll see a road paved with good intentions."
What does it all mean, well check out this interesting article on Meaningful Use and mHealth:
