The era of Pen and Paper Medical records is over! As we enter the Digital Doctor’s Lounge, we explore the latest methods in which physicians can engage technology to do everything from reviewing lab results to transcribing notes and comparing drug information. This session aimed to bring the physician out of the dark ages and into an environment supported and assisted by targeted technology.
An MD with a Harvard Public Health degree, Chris Johnson turned 4 years of experience installing CPOE systems into Performance Clinical. As an intuitive cloud-based checklist, documentation, and analytics platform, Symphony works as an extension to existing EMR systems to support physician workflows. It’s running (and thrilling the staff ) in the cash-strapped Alameda County Medical Center and at BCBS Tennessee’s medical homes project.
Compared to other major industries the health care industry has been slow to adopt technologies to make the delivery of care more efficient. Although the recent infusion of billions of dollars into health information technology by the federal government has encouraged providers and hospitals to adopt efficiency-enhancing technologies like electronic medical records, many critical health services are still delivered using inefficient systems and processes. We’ll hear from a range of companies creating and marketing technologies that will make the delivery of care quicker, faster and cheaper.
