Disruptive Innovation in Health IT: A Path to Acceptance (Part 1)

Disruptive Innovation in Health IT: A Path to Acceptance (Part 1) | Australian e-health | Scoop.it

Disruptive innovation (as defined by Clayton M. Christensen turns the conventional paradigm of the market on its head, not by improving on competitors’ offerings, but by actually reducing functionality. That is, disruptive innovations make products simpler and less costly. This wreaks havoc within many industrial sectors, where, sensing opportunities at the bottom of the market, large companies will frequently choose to ignore it, dismissing it as “not competing in their space.”It helps create a new market and value network, and eventually goes on to disrupt an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology. They are generally technologically straightforward, consisting of off-the-shelf components put together in a product architecture that is simpler, more convenient and less expensive than prior approaches. They offer a different package of attributes valued only in emerging markets remote from, and unimportant to, the mainstream.

Across the country, governments, employers, and health insurers are driving healthcare delivery organizations toward new payment models that make them accountable for the quality, cost, coordination, and outcomes of care.  As a result, value in the eye of providers is no longer defined as better quality, safety, or outcomes regardless of cost but rather better outcomes and better health of the people and populations they serve at a lower cost per capita.

Top Tech Trends and People of 2012

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

Risk Assessments – What's the Big Deal? Your Responsibilities If You Adopt Electronic Health Records | Healthcare Information Technology

One the most challenging areas facing healthcare organizations today is the decision to adopt an electronic health records system.  This decision involves significant financial resources and time commitment in transferring data, becoming familiar with the system and other issues. An essential element in reviewing vendor proposals and determining how to implement an EMR system is an analysis of how well the system protects health records and the sensitive personal information in those records against unauthorized use and disclosures, including theft. In this age of global exchange of information, unauthorized disclosure extends beyond inadvertent access to information all the way to intentional access by well-organized criminal enterprises.

Many medical schools don't have guidelines for training students about electronic health records

The electronic health record (EHR) has improved health care delivery, but also has presented a challenge for medical student training. Educational mandates that can provide guidelines to medical schools on how to teach and assess student skills in EHR proficiency do not exist.

 

In two studies published this month by the journal Teaching and Learning in Medicine, the Alliance for Clinical Education describes the importance of medical student participation in the EHR. The Alliance, made up of education leaders from a broad range of medical specialties, was formed to enhance clinical instruction of medical students.

 

“Currently only 64 percent of medical school programs allow students any use of EHRs, and of those only two-thirds allowed students to write notes with in the electronic record,” says Maya M. Hammoud, the study’s lead author and associate professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan Medical School.

 

“Previously, students were just able to pick up a physical patient chart. Now they need permission to use hospital computers and passwords to access the EHR. There also are concerns surrounding Medicare rules about physicians using trainees’ findings in the HER,” says Hammoud, who is chair of the Alliance’s Research Committee.
