Complete seamless interoperability

Yes and robust, comète, seamless interoperability rather than data silos and incompatible EHRs. ONC did a great job working to fix this but much more work to do. And the burden is now on HIT vendors to do their part and support the effort.

@FowkesB @PanMass Congrats on your PMC ride. Better than last year reimagined and a good first step to a full PMC. My 37th. $42 mil and counting

@ScottGottliebMD Thank you everyone for these most humerus explanations.

@CraigJoseph What value should the EHR deliver? Better patient care. Patient safety. Cost savings. Better medical research. How can we do this with closed systems? Profit and responsibility are not mutually exclusive.

Navigating the Code


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.
