Part 3: Is Interoperability A Technical or Business Challenge In Healthcare?

Until we solve the first riddle of who we are to the healthcare system, true data interop will remain the chew toy of competing commercial interests and the Kabuki dance of “information blocking” will continue unabated. Playing on the fears that we’re somehow safer without a national patient identifier is effective marketing, but it’s technically false. We’re actually less safe (and less private) using an antiquated, 9‒digit numbering system developed in the 1930s.

 

Mandating a unique ‒ and technically superior ‒ patient identifier may not be the biggest problem in healthcare IT, but it is absolutely the first. Absent this critical standard, we will continue to struggle with competing interests, technical workarounds, and hand‒delivered data. Contrary to the headline question for this series, interoperability isn’t a business or technical challenge at all. It’s really a moral one of the highest priority.

Replacing Cloverleaf: Testing the field and choosing a winner at Middlesex Hospital | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Brad was kind enough to schedule a follow up call with me to discuss in detail his approach to replacing Cloverleaf. Particularly interesting was that his initial choice was to go with Orion Rhapsody. Here’s what Brad had to say about what prompted his change of heart:

 

“Then I took that hat off of Brad Lockwood as programmer and put on the Middlesex Hospital hat and said, ‘What’s the best system for the hospital?’ That was a completely different look at things.”

The Day “View, Download, and Transmit” Died by @JimTate

The Day “View, Download, and Transmit” Died by @JimTate | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Proposed rules released last week have effectively gutted the most troublesome of the “patient engagement” requirements. The issue is the sudden collapse of requirements related to “patient engagement”. There had been intense pushback against the measures that required patients to come to a provider’s portal or send a secure message to their provider.

Why does the HIT industry lag behind in terms of supporting workflow-friendly technology & process awareness? How do we fix? | #HITsm | Scoop.it

Tuesday during HIMSS15 (great conference!) a special #HITsm tweetchat occurred during a live panel. I’d submitted a question about workflow, but didn’t think it had been accepted. Only Thursday did I realize the question had indeed been tweeted and discussed. Better late than never! Here are my tweeted responses to panelist answers to my question. I may write a complete blog post later, with links to my many other posts about healthcare workflow technology.

Last week, I was riveted to the deliberations on the Senate floor, as the fate of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA – so far, more commonly called the “SGR fix”) was decided. One amendment after another failed to pass; the legislation ultimately passed by a vote of 92-8, and was signed into law shortly thereafter.
