Building for the Long Term Requires More than Moving the Needle

Building for the Long Term Requires More than Moving the Needle | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Perhaps, what we need to remember when dealing with customer data is that the purpose of any company is to solve the need of a person. Lose sight of that and we’ve probably fallen trap to “short-termism” and left with nothing but counting website clicks and likes instead of actual customers.

Learning to Speak the Language of Health Data Exchange

Learning to Speak the Language of Health Data Exchange | #HITsm | Scoop.it

An analyst new to health IT offers her insights on getting started: 

 

"Working with HL7 seems to more closely resemble another former job of mine at a burger joint. The restaurant owners had defined their standard burger to include: mayo, mustard, tomato, onion, lettuce, and a beef patty, in that order. Unless otherwise specified, that was what the customer could count on receiving.


However, most customers needed some slight variation in their burger. Some wanted "repeating" pickles while others wanted the tomato completely removed. Customers could even have customized ingredients put on their burgers, such as kimchee or a fried egg, if the standard ingredients didn't fit all of their needs. HL7 seems to resemble this "have it your way" model."

Epic Systems playing defense on Ebola, interop: A losing game?

Epic Systems playing defense on Ebola, interop: A losing game? | #HITsm | Scoop.it

The health of patients and financial well-being of taxpayers are eroding while the EHR vendor-sphere drags its feet in order to profit on a lack of health data interoperability, as well as systems notorious for a lack of usability. They are investing in lobbyists when they could be investing in data interfaces connecting competing EHRs, as well as improving usability. That's not funny at all.
