EHR Vendors Ranked by Market Share - Additive Analytics Blog

EHR Vendors Ranked by Market Share - Additive Analytics Blog | News stories related to the EHR and Research | Scoop.it
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.
Glenn's insight:

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.

Glenn's insight:

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!

Verizon launches its home health platform with EHR support, gamification

Verizon launches its home health platform with EHR support, gamification | News stories related to the EHR and Research | Scoop.it

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.
