Hazards tied to medical records rush; no reporting required when errors cause har

Hazards tied to medical records rush; no reporting required when errors cause har | #HITsm | Scoop.it
President Obama and Congress poured $30 billion in taxpayer subsidies for digital medical records beginning in 2009, with few strings attached and no safety oversight of the vendors who sell the systems. Although the explosion in use of the electronic records has opened up a new category of patient risks, the Obama administration has opted against mandatory reporting of problems.
Chad Johnson's insight:

Actually...  HITECH is a product of the Bush administration.

Healthcare Standards: Supercompliance with HL7 CCDA Versions

Healthcare Standards: Supercompliance with HL7 CCDA Versions | #HITsm | Scoop.it

I've written several times about C-CDA Release 2.0 and issues with template versioning which are pretty close to resolution, and I've also written previously about the 2015 Certification criteria and backwards compatibilitywith 2014 criteria.

What I'd like to expand upon now is an issue that could occur if C-CDA Release 2.0 was adopted as optional criteria for 2015 and how we could arrange things so that a 2014 system could receive it.

UPMC software eases physicians' access to diverse patient records

UPMC software eases physicians' access to diverse patient records | #HITsm | Scoop.it

UPMC's Technology Development Center in Bakery Square in Larimer has built a tablet-based platform that aims to take such “detective work” out of medicine, by pulling information from a variety of electronic health record silos and presenting it to doctors on a sleek and meaningful interface that's easy for non-techies to digest.

The platform, called Convergence, earned UPMC the 2014 Innovator Award by the American Hospital Association's Hospital & Health Networks journal.

Convergence aims to help physicians save time and make smarter clinical decisions. It allows doctors to access patient information on the go with Microsoft Surface tablets and can reveal in minutes a medical history that otherwise could take 30 minutes to an hour to research on desktop computers

That XML Schema is NOT the HL7 Standard you are reading

That XML Schema is NOT the HL7 Standard you are reading | #HITsm | Scoop.it

With very few exceptions*, HL7 Version 3 standards are models of interactions and information exchanges using messages between various applications acting in different roles in the system.  The HL7 Development Framework then automatically applies rules about how the interactions identified by the model are expressed in XML Schema using the HL7 Version 3 Implementation Technology Specification. That specification relies a bit further on the HL7 Version 3 Data Types (pick any of three releases) for expression of the basic data types in the message.

Comparing Interface Engines, via @realworldHL7 | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Any modern interface engine will provide you flexibility and control. Your focus in evaluating interface engines should be on the user experience that surrounds the interface construction, support, and maintenance process. The fact that an interface engine has coding as a requirement to build interfaces does not make it more flexible.

To Interoperability and Beyond! by Rasu Shrestha, MD | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Improving clinical workflow begins with interoperability and ends with a serious focus on usability, design, clearer information visualization and actionable intelligence at the point of care. Better usability should mean efficient, safer, higher quality, better coordinated care, and it should be a goal for every EMR vendor, developer, designer, programmer and clinical informatician.
