In this video we look at the state of HIM today with Charlie Saponaro, President and CEO of Medical Record Associates. We talk about where HIM is heading and trends like remote HIM and outsourced HIM. This is a wide ranging conversation about HIM and many of the important trends that are happening.
What do you think of this video?
I found this video really interesting. Vishal Gandhi, CEO of ClinicSpectrum took his post Building Accountability and Consistency Into Your Healthcare Practice on EMR and HIPAA and turned it into video format. He did it quickly, so I think it could benefit from a little polish, but I love the idea. Video can capture people’s imagination in a way that text can not.
Going to the topic of the video, I’ve seen a lot of practices that can benefit from the idea of accountability in their practice. In many respects, Vishal is just describing how to implement some best business practices into your clinic. Many practices could benefit from these simple ideas.
I recently had a chance to tour the uniquely designed Sanford Health office in Fargo, ND. I’d never seen a space like it. It’s layered with technology to track the patients, nurses, doctors, etc. Plus, they’ve created a really interesting “Off Stage” and “On Stage” approach that pulls from Disney. Patients only ever see the “On Stage” area and the staff do their work “Off Stage.” Not to mention things like Self-Rooming.
Here’s a video of Jeff Hoss, Vice President of Clinical Operations at Sanford Health, talking about the clinic and some of the outcomes of their design (plus, make sure you listen to his bad data example):
What do you think of some of these ideas? Is what he describes the perfect patient process flow? Have you had experience implementing RTLS in your environment?
I was talking with some people about creating a few National Health IT Week videos, and Dr. Webster (better known as @wareFLO) created this funny video.
Mr RIMP (@MrRIMP) is a Bluetooth-controlled, 3D-printed wearable robot who lives in Dr. Chuck Webster’s pocket (@wareFLO). Kids, pediatricians and child life specialists love him. And HE loves Health Information Technology! Happy #NHITweek!
I’m not sure where Dr. Webster gets the time to tinker, but I’ll never be as awesome as him. A Google Glass controlled robot! That’s awesome. Nice work Chuck.
The incomparable ZDoggMD has put out his best medical comedy video yet. He does an amazing parody of Les Miserable’ “The Confrontation.” This is an instant addition to my Funny Healthcare and Health IT video playlist. Plus, ZDogg’s write up of the video is just as funny.
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.
