Healthcare organizations are promised and make promises to see changes in processes, financial savings and ultimately, improvements in the care they provide by implementing an EMR solution. The truth is, very few have actually been able to keep those promises. We're going to explore why and learn what organizations can do to take full advantage of their EMR investment. Our guest will be Dan Exley, the Executive Director of Data Strategy and Reporting for Memorial Health in California. Dan is a recognized leader in EMR implementations and optimizations.
Our guest on More For Your Practice Radio is Kristin Walker, the owner of EVEHR (everything electronic health records), a behavioral health provider advocacy and consulting firm that helps clients assess the most appropriate electronic health record system for their practice needs and funding level. She will be sharing her tips on how to evaluate an EMR and what tricks to watch for during an EMR demo.
Dr Jonas, your host, holds a late night session about morbid measurement, murderous metrics which are killing healthcare. The NYT article "How Measurement Fails Doctors and Teachers" by Robert Wachter in the Sunday Review is a timely message of importance to the nation. We will discuss it.
How does this relate to Family Medicine? Many ways. We have abandoned our essence as unmeasurable fluff. We have agreed to be measured by wigeteers and come up short for our patients. Patient autonomy be damned and meaningful use be honored seemed to be our motto. We failed to exert the leadership that would protect our patients from massive amounts of bonus based healthcare. The EMR outranked medical ethics. Is there hope?
Discussion of MTHFR, use of methyl B vitamins, EMR rants from my blog, Clinical Decision Making, a few more incidentaloma comments and Grief in December from another of my blog posts. Dr Synonymous (Pat Jonas, MD) reviews blogs, tweets and the medical literature. He is a Board-Certified Family Physician who is holistic minded and curious about the human condition.
Listen in as he reflects on the health care system, Family Medicine and holistic health.
How you can benefit from owing an EMR. How it can help save your life in an emergency, disaster or accident. The Boy and Girl Scouts taught us to "Be Prepared" but I bet 90% of you, if I asked, could not remember their medications , names, doses and what they were for if it were an emergency.
Funny we always think, "It will never happen to me" until it does and then we try to scramble to pick up the pieces. Why put yourself in harms way? Not only can you store your medical information but vital documents, pictures, insurance policies, wills, licenses, passports and much more. In short you could carry your entire life in your hands without any worry because it is password protected and encrypted with military grade 256AES encryption.
Our first show will be more of statements than an Q & A, but I would like you to put some questions down on paper so you could ask me the next time or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will answer your questions, every one of them.
Thanks and I will see you on the Radio....Norman
