EHR prevents administration of bivalent pediatric COVID vaccine as no order set in EHR. When will EHR enhance patient care rather than prevent it? #navigatingthecode #EHR #BarrySpeaks #HIT #healthIT #digitalworkers #AI

EHRs Should Not Prevent Care Delivery My colleague attempted to administer bivalent pediatric COVID vaccine to her patient but discovered that her EHR did not have the proper "order set" installed. She was forced to send the child home unvaccinated and to…https://t.co/mp2J6TWf4C

Do We Always Want to Get Our Medical Test Results Immediately? Perhaps we need standards or at least an opt-in/opt-out choice for patients to express their wishes. Isn't that the purpose of this provision in the Act? #navigatingthecode #barryspeaks https://t.co/NWd0tdn7B5

Transforming the Patient-Physician Journey

The healthcare industry, unlike many others, runs on time-tested ways to practice excellence in medicine. But does that mean adherence to practices and processes that are fifty, seventy, even a hundred years old?

Dr. Barry P. Chaiken thinks not. His 25+ years of experience as a physician and an informaticist, he believes information technology is healthcare’s greatest problem-solving tool for resolving the greatest medical and business problems of the 21st century.

The solution: Revolutionary Healthcare Information Technology.

The author’s convincing thesis is based on a single premise: we must open ourselves to change. Once we commit, he explains how this openness can help us out of our longstanding malaise and guide us toward a transformative healthcare experience for both the patient and the physician. With painstaking honesty and practicality, Navigating the Code presents a simple, factual, businesslike approach to solving healthcare’s problems. But don’t take his word for it: the book presents the views of eighteen thought-leaders in medicine and healthcare information technology.

Dr. Chaiken delineates the RHIT solution in five Parts:

Part I explains the depth and breadth of healthcare’s problems, worldwide, then its issues with technology, change and business management;

Part II presents RHIT as the essential tool for change management and the transformation which accrues from its implementation;

Part III develops a deeper, more encompassing understanding of change management for creating an integrated workflow for clinicians, patients and the business;

Part IV explores the application of RHIT and its transformational impact on the Hippocratic Code of quality, access, outcomes and financial investment by both the patient and the provider; and

Part V draws everything together in final chapters: the marriage of healthcare economics and interoperability, creating the connected, adaptive healthcare organization.
