Creating a patient window – all patient content in one place
Some healthcare organizations have several hundred IT systems across the enterprise. With all of these systems, it can be difficult to get the information you need, when you need it. Open the program, wait for it to load, perform your search, switch back to the other program, reference your notes, etc. In a perfect world, all of this content would be available in the electronic medical record (EMR). EMRs are great solutions and will continue to be well into the foreseeable future, but everyone needs some help once in a while.
Despite Herculean efforts to the contrary, many clinicians are not fully utilizing the EMR. If the information they need is too difficult to find or simply isn’t there, why would they? Sharing clinical data across the enterprise is difficult, especially when multiple different specialty areas create and store various forms of clinical content in disparate, disconnected systems.
