EHR Training and EHR Go Live Video from Via Christi Hospital

I’ve seen a number of creative EHR go live videos from various hospitals, but I was really intrigued by the following two EHR training and go live videos for Via Christi hospitals. I found them really interesting because you could hear the first person perspective on what was happening. Certainly people see a camera and say things a little bit different, but I think these videos did a pretty good job capturing the mix of emotions that happen when someone moves to EHR.

Via Christi is part of Ascension Health, and it’s the largest health system in Kansas. It has about a dozen hospitals across the state, several more clinics and senior centers. They had 15 different EHR systems they turned off when they switched to Cerner’s EHR. The Kansas paper reported that the new EHR cost $85 million.

This first video talks about the EHR training that occurred and got comments from a lot of doctors about the change. I found it interesting that they say each doctor got 14 hours of training.

This video talks about the go live. I like the idea of celebrating events like an EHR go live. This felt a little too “made for TV” for me, but there are some really interesting perspectives including the project manager who’s watching the timelines, the IT person who’s just ready to flip the switch, and the nurse that’s not sure what to do with paper while they do the cut over.

Thanks to Via Christi for sharing a bit of their experience moving to Cerner!

A Look at EHR Post Acquisition – Google Plus Hangout

About a year ago, Amazing Charts was acquired by Pri-Med. In the following Google Plus hangout I had a chance to sit down with John Squire, President and COO of Amazing Charts, who joined the company about 7 months ago to talk about Amazing Charts post acquisition.

Along with talk about Amazing Charts EHR post-acquisition, we also dig into 2014 Certified EHR and Amazing Charts’ plans to be 2014 Certified. Plus, we talk about the value and impact of meaningful use and the ICD-10 delay. Finally we wrap up with a look at where Amazing Charts is headed in the future. I think you’ll enjoy this interview.

Note: Google Plus was having some issues with John Squire’s video, so we only have his voice.

Unique EMA Dermatology iPad EMR – Psoriasis Example

I talked about the unique EMA interface in my post looking back on my 2012 Christmas Wish List. Turns out Modernizing Medicine has another video that shows their iPad EHR interface. You can check it out below:

I think the real magic of this video happens at about 1:45 in when it switches from the touch screen data entry on a physical model and displays the text of the note that was created.

Going Beyond EHR Data Collection to EHR Data Use with Dr. Dan Riskin

We had a chance to sit down and do a Google Plus hangout with Dan Riskin, MD, CEO and co-founder of Health Fidelity to discuss the challenges of EHR today and how we can reach the real benefits of EHR adoption. We had a great discussion about how the industry is so caught up just getting the data in the EHR software that we’re missing out on the opportunity to get the benefits of actually using the EHR data.

For some reason the Google hangout audio and video didn’t sink right (welcome to the cutting edge of technology), but the audio is good. Just start up the video below and enjoy listening to it like a podcast or radio show. I expect that’s what most of you do anyway with our videos.

I hope you’ll enjoy my interview with Dr. Riskin.
