Creating a Comprehensive Patient EHR with Device Integration
October 1, 2013, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Tim Smith, Principal, Kelly Patrick, Specialist Leader, Nick Wong, Senior Manager, Health Information Technology Solutions (HITS) and James Moore Senior Consultant, Deloitte Consulting LLP. This session provides an overview of the importance of medical device integration to providing a complete view of the patient in an EHR. They review some of the established and emerging vendors and provide anecdotal experiences with each of those vendors. The presentation also provides lessons learned from the field, as well as some points to consider related to implementing medical device integration. Of particular note, the presenters outline some of the strategic implementation challenges that arise from the convergence of biomedical/clinical engineering and information technology, two disciplines that previously have not needed to be partners in system deployments.
