E-medical records – nine lessons learned

Posted on August 15, 2009. Filed under: health, information technology, medical |

Something like $20 billion was identifed in ARRA (Recovery Act) for implementation of e-health records by hospitals, doctors offices, and related organizations.  The potential to improve health care and lower health care costs over time was touted, due to the potential for individual medical records to be accurately shared from one health care provider to another and/or from one visit or one procedure to another.

However new technology implementations of any kind can be rough initially, and a large-scale transition to e-health/e-medical records is no different.  A very recent Information Week article identifes nine lessons learned from health care providers who have implemented e-medical records.    It rings true for many types of new technology implementations generally, but certainly focuses clearly on health care providers and e-medical records.  “Nine Lessons Learned from E-Medical Record Veterans” is well worth reading. –nks
