I thought this video by TrustHCS was a nice look at the productivity roller coaster that healthcare’s been on and where it’s heading in the future. The video focuses a lot on coding productivity with ICD-10 coming. It also suggests that the meaningful use and EHR productivity dip is almost over. I’m not sure I agree with this, but I do agree with them that ICD-10 will cause some major productivity issues for a number of organizations. Enjoy the video.
While at the Digital Health Conference in NYC, I sat down with Kyle Samani, CEO and Founder of Pristine. As their website states, Kyle and Pristine are “Delivering the next generation of telemedicine and process control solutions at the point of care through Google Glass.” If you have any interest in Google Glass and healthcare, you should check out this interview. We cover a lot of ground and Kyle gives a great look at what some of the future of Google Glass use in healthcare could look like. I hope you enjoy the video.
P.S. Sorry about the audio. I didn’t realize Kyle’s audio was a little off when we were recording it.
As a side note, I just got my Google Glass today. It’s quite the experience to use it. It’s going to take some getting use to, but it is really amazing technology.
This week I got together with Nathan DiNiro (@unclenate) to discuss this week’s #HITsm Twitter chat about Healthcare Interoperability and Telemedicine. We had a really great chat about what’s holding back interoperability in healthcare. We also dive into some areas of Telemedicine that I haven’t seen many people discuss including the impact of Google Glass on Telemedicine. We saw a lot of interesting opportunities for Google Glass in Healthcare. Check out the video embedded below.
If you’re a part of the #HITsm community and would like to take part or host one of these post-#HITsm Google plus hangouts, we’d love to have you. We want it to be as inclusive as the #HITsm Twitter chat itself. Just drop us a note on our contact us page or send a tweet to @ehrandhit.
We’ve been testing a bunch of different uses of video on healthcare IT. One of those has been a discussion about the weekly #HITsm chat. This week we decided to do a 30 minute video discussion right after the #HITsm Twitter chat. The topic for the chat was Healthcare Worker Burnout & Health IT. A number of people have thanked us for the video, so I thought I’d share it on here for more people to enjoy. Plus, we’d love to hear feedback on it as well.
Be sure to tune in live tomorrow (Thursday) for the Open vs Closed EHR Discussion with Jonathan Bush.
Today we held our first live Google plus hangout as part of Xerox’s Ask the Experts series. We had a great panel of TEDMED attendees participate:
- John Lynn, editor and founder of the Healthcare Scene blog network
- Markus Fromherz, chief innovation officer of Xerox Healthcare,
- Benjamin Miller, assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine
- Nick Dawson, chief experience officer at Frontier Health Consulting
We only went for about 15 minutes, but could have likely sat there and talked about healthcare for hours. I hope you enjoy the short TEDMED recap video:
If your healthcare organization hasn’t taken a deep look into the HIPAA Omnibus rule yet, you better get started yesterday. If you’re not sure why the HIPAA Omnibus rule changes matter, then check out this video interview of Rita Bowen from HealthPort where she discusses some of the HIPAA changes and consequences of not being ready for the changes.
Last night, digital health finally went mainstream. The ever popular Eric Topol was featured on NBC’s Rock Center. It’s great that more people will learn about what’s happening in Digital Healthcare. I particularly like near the end of the video Dr. Topol talks about the need for patients to be more involved in their health. Plus, it was fun to see the AliveCor device in action on network television. I’ve embedded the full video of Eric Topol on Rock Center below.
