Accelerated innovation and technological advancements in EHRs, VNAs, and AICAs see new emerging ecosystems and platforms collectively forming to shift the industry from “clinical applications with a data focus” to “platform plays with an outcome focus.” This is notably seen in the next-generation of EHR solutions (EHR 2.0) where workflows and capabilities must be well suited to support new models of care delivery, integrated pathways, and value-based reimbursement. In addition, new use cases are emerging with technologies such as AI, blockchain, and chatbots increasingly having a role to play in delivering better digital patient experiences and personalized medicine.
Goals and Objectives
Shift clinical documentation from a focus on data to outcomes through personalization, integration, and value-based workflows.
Alleviate “by design” current deficiencies in human-machine interaction.
Improve professional satisfaction in data entry, documentation, and workflow.
Reduce work and information overload through intelligent applications of embedded technologies and judicious use of notifications and alerts.
