3 Takeaways from an EHR Internal Communications Strategy

3 Takeaways from an EHR Internal Communications Strategy | HealthLeaders Media: Health IT | Scoop.it

 

 

Marianne Aiello, for HealthLeaders Media, November 2, 2011

 

When healthcare organizations are rolling out a new electronic health record system, it’s easy for marketers to get caught up in the benefits: it will make patient interactions faster, greener, and improve the continuity of care. But to attain these outcomes, the entire organization must be on board. While it may seem like a no-brainer—who wouldn’t want to use an EHR?!—there may be pockets within the organization tentative about using a new technology. To win those groups over, you’ll need a comprehensive internal communications strategy.

Get Out of IT, Get into Healthcare IT

Get Out of IT, Get into Healthcare IT | HealthLeaders Media: Health IT | Scoop.it

Gienna Shaw, for HealthLeaders Media

 

What's the difference between healthcare IT professionals and their peers in other industries? Well, the answer might depend on how the healthcare IT professional answers that classic cocktail party question: "So, what do you do for a living?" (See the LinkedIn discussion. )

 

"What makes the great individuals in IT great? The answer is they don't see themselves in IT," said Craig Schiefelbein on the closing day of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives fall forum in San Antonio last week. "They're in healthcare."

 

So, what do you do? Are you in IT (or finance, quality, or marketing, or any other department within a provider organization)? Or are you in healthcare?

 

The answer, says Schiefelbein, who is the co-founder and CEO of Paragon Development Systems and author of the book "Get Out of IT While You Can," can make a difference in how happy you are. It also impacts a lot of other areas that are important to any organization, but critical in healthcare, from patient experience to quality to long-term sustainable growth.

How might mobile tech improve EHR use?

How might mobile tech improve EHR use? | HealthLeaders Media: Health IT | Scoop.it

Few areas of mobile health captivate and frustrate like the integration of electronic health records (EHRs). As mHealth rapidly evolves so, too, has EHR, making for a multidimensional moving playing field of competing and often incompatible technologies. Medical computing expert Scot Silverstein of Drexel University has criticized most medical records systems as being overly complicated, difficult to use, and prone to glitches, a perspective substantiated by IT behemoths such as IBM and Microsoft that have discovered highly lucrative revenue streams helping hospitals integrate and extract data from disparate and unwieldy software systems.
