Would Heath IT Standards Prevent a Tragic Death?

Would Heath IT Standards Prevent a Tragic Death? | Health IT ☤ Informatics | Scoop.it

By Rob Brull

 

The New York Times reported recently on the death of an emergency department patient at NYU Langone Medical Center who was discharged before abnormal lab results were received. The patient was told they were suffering from a typical stomach bug, and never told that a lab order was placed. The primary care physician was never made aware of the lab results either.


My objective is to analyze how health IT might have played a role to help in this tragic event. With the formation of HIEs and ACOs along with adherence to Meaningful Use criteria, the goal is that all patients will receive better quality and more efficient healthcare.

 

Could available health IT standards prevented what happened at NYU? I will attempt to recreate the workflow of healthcare data using the latest standards and communication frameworks available in healthcare.
