New Data Driven Perspectives in Healthcare w/ @MandiBPro and @Ashish_P

I was going through the Healthcare Scene archive of videos and realized I’d never shared my discussion with Mandi Bishop, Health Plan Analytics Innovation Practice Lead at Dell and Ashish Patel, Co-Founder of CareSet.com and DocGraph.com, about healthcare data. This was a really interesting discussion about various health data sources and what those sources of data could mean to healthcare. If you’re into healthcare data, you’ll really enjoy this discussion with two health data geeks (said with much affection).

What’s the Right Approach to Data Analytics in an ACO Shared Savings Program?

At the HIMSS 2016 Annual conference, Shahid Shah from Netspective Media had a chance to talk with Souvik Das, Principal Data Scientist and Big Data Architect at Sutter Health at the SAP booth to talk about Souvik’s healthcare analytics ACO work at Sutter Health.

In this video Shahid and Souvik talk about how a healthcare organization should prioritize their healthcare analytics efforts. They also talk about the need to work on analytics that improve patient care, increase revenue, and increase efficiency. Plus, they highlight how it’s not enough to focus on the technical aspects of your analytics, but you need to also focus on the organizational aspects. Souvik also highlights the key concept that “If you’re going to fail, fail small and fail early.” Finally he talks about the need to have buy in at the executive level or the project will fail.

If you’re working on healthcare analytics or are part of an ACO Shared Savings program, you’ll enjoy this video interview of Souvik Das from HIMSS 2016:

Making Precision Medicine a Reality with SAP Healthcare and Mercy

In this Healthcare Scene interview, I sit down with Curtis Dudley and Dr. David Delaney to talk about their precision medicine work at Mercy using SAP HANA to improve quality outcomes and reduce delivery costs using perioperative analytics. We also dive into why Mercy chose to use a third party analytics software instead of their Epic EHR. Plus, we talk about where Mercy and SAP plan to take these healthcare analytics platforms next and how they plan to share the work they’ve done with other hospital systems. We know you’ll enjoy this look into precision medicine at work:

Here are a few more details for our panelists:

  • Curtis Dudley, Vice President of Performance Solutions at Mercy
  • David Delaney, MD is Chief Medical Officer of SAP Public Services and Healthcare Industries
  • John Lynn, Founder of HealthcareScene.com

In the “after party” we dove into more of the technical details of what’s required to roll out a healthcare analytics platform. We dug into Mercy’s approach to exporting data from their EHR and other data sources into SAP HANA and when they choose to just store pointers to the data instead of exporting all the data. We also talk about whether healthcare analytics is really available for the smaller health systems or if it really only works for larger health systems.

If you want to learn more about SAP’s work with Mercy hospital system, both Mercy and SAP Healthcare will be at HIMSS 2016.

Patient Identification and Patient Matching A Million Dollar Challenge

Healthcare Scene recently had the chance to sit down with a panel of experts on patient identification and patient matching. In this interview we talk over the challenges associated with matching patients in healthcare and the damage that’s done when you don’t match the right patient. We also talk about the solutions to the patient identification and matching problem including the impact a national patient identifier would have on the problem. Finally we talk about CHIME’s $1 million National Patient ID challenge.

Here’s a look at those who participated in the discussion:

If you’re interested in the challenge of patient identification and patient matching in healthcare, then you’ll enjoy this discussion:

Also, after the more formal discussion we take some questions from the live audience in what we call the “after party.” Along with discussing Beth Just’s new alter ego, we also dive in deeper on the topic of patient identification and matching:

Video Interview with Helen Waters, VP at MEDITECH

Healthcare Scene was lucky to sit down with Helen Waters, VP at MEDITECH, to talk about the EHR market and MEDITECH’s place in that market. Plus, we dive into the culture and history of MEDITECH and how it’s changed. We also explore MEDITECH’s plans around innovation, integration, and value along with MEDITECH’s efforts to deploy cloud and mobile solutions. Finally, we had to talk about healthcare interoperability. We hope you’ll enjoy this wide ranging interview with Helen Waters:

After the formal interview we did above, we allow people watching live to be able to ask questions and even hop on camera to offer their insights or ask questions of Helen in what we call the “after party.” In this “after party” discussion we talk to Helen about her thoughts on the changing healthcare reimbursement landscape and what MEDITECH is doing to prepare for it. We also talk about integrating telemedicine into MEDITECH. I also ask Helen about MEDITECH’s views on EHR APIs.

Great Interview with Jonathan Bush

Jonathan Bush is the very best interview in healthcare IT. A few years back, Neil Versel grabbed Jonathan Bush at his athenahealth cloud party at HIMSS for an interview. It’s now become quite a tradition. They talk a lot about CommonWell, the impact of Medicare penalties, and much more. Here’s this year’s interview of Jonathan Bush at HIMSS by Neil Versel:

P.S. Yes, HIMSS was forever ago and I’m just catching up on stuff now.

Medication Reconciliation Issues and Insights Video

The jury is in and there is not a trace of reasonable doubt that medication errors, especially those resulting from poor medication reconciliation, are a persistent problem for the healthcare industry. Adversely affecting all parties involved—provider organizations, quality managers, clinicians, and patients—ineffective med rec has been cited as the culprit for many of these errors.

First Databank recently put out this video to start the conversation about the importance of medication reconciliation and the evolution of it over time. I think this is an important conversation that doesn’t get enough attention.
