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.

Healthcare Productivity Roller Coaster

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.
