Slicer Dicer: UCHealth providers carve up data to bolster care (article)


Thanks to my good friend Tyler Smith, a freelance writer who published this article in the UCHealth Today newsletter, on how our doctors, nurses and staff are using Epic EHR data to improve care, through an innovative self-service analysis tool that even busy providers can use to create and run reports of “missed opportunities” and get patients the care they need (vaccines, screenings and the like). Thanks for the great write up!

CMIO’s Take? The Health IT world of EHR’s needs a better, more consistent way to share our successes; all the great work we are doing. The perception from many is that “The EHR is just a black hole. You give and give, and nothing every comes back out that is useful.” Well, we beg to differ. We just need to get the word out so more people know. How is your organization doing this?

Addendum: Happy thanksgiving everyone – hope you all have a great break.
