Nearly half of all hospitals now have data repositories, says HIMSS Analytics. Buying plans for next five years include warehousing, patient portal, and radiology barcoding apps.
I'm surprised that only 45% of hospitals have a data warehouse of some sort. I wonder if the main constraint is the difficulty in obtaining and extracting out the meaningful data from current EHR systems (or the lack of).
Patient engagement represents the next aim of healthcare reform through the adoption of health IT systems and services. It just received a boost from PCORI. (How does patient engagement transform into useful EHR data?
The right perspective on getting patients not just involved with their own care, but going to the next level of ensuring that the patient is a part of the research being conducted. The picture gets more complex, but potential benefits all the greater.

This isn't exactly EHR/Research related, but I can only emphasize that one should print this out and tape it to the inside of their notebook! Great info for quickly going back and checking what a researcher is exactly saying or asking for in an analysis.

The Trouble With 'Scientific' Research Today: A Lot That's Published Is Junk Forbes Many non-scientists are confused and dismayed by the constantly changing advice that comes from medical and other researchers on various issues.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing an Electronic Health Records (EHR) vendor is market share. For one thing, if a vendor has a high market share, it means that many people chose to use it.
Would be nice if the article could have included market share by individuals covered (checked source data, wasn't there). But gives a good idea on the top vendors in the game and the huge necessity and effort for the ability to exchange data in some fashion for research purposes.
How VA Is Using Big Data to Keep Patients Out of the Hospital GovExec.com Both the scores and the assessment system draw from the 80 terabytes of patient statistics and other information collected in VHA's corporate data warehouse, which sucks up...
Easier done with controlled data like at the VA. Much more difficult in a more competitive environment with smaller data sets to work with. But the principle is great. In addition, one of the greatest challenges is having a clinical and/or billing-focused EHR available for epidemiological types of analysis across patient populations. Not a small endeavor!
Big data and banks: The growing relationship IDG News Service De-identification of data is one way businesses can try to bring anonymity to profiles, so they can't be read by humans managing the process.

Verizon Wireless announced the launch of its Converged Health Management system, which was cleared by the FDA in August. The Converged Health Management system consists of a wirelessly connected home health monitoring hub.
The remote monitoring hub will take in data on blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, glucose levels, and weight from various connected devices. The Verizon system will connect with Ideal Life devices. It will transmit that data wirelessly to a HIPAA-compliant Verizon server on the cloud. There, the patient’s data can be accessed by the patient’s clinician, insurer, or employer who can analyze that information and use it to intervene in the recovery process if necessary.
Verizon will also provide an app and a web portal, branded in connection with customer, on which patients can access their information. The app or portal can also be customizable to include a gamified rewards system designed to help patients make healthier choices. Additionally, the app and web portal can allow patients access to an anonymized social network.
