Recently I had a blog posted on “Teaching Clinical Informatics” on the HIMSS Clinical and Business Intelligence blog. It is a topic that has not received enough attention in HIT but it is the logical next step as more hospitals, health systems and practices implement EMRs.
Also from HIMSS, I will be speaking at a virtual event, Transforming Care by Improved Decision Making: Deriving Meaning from Big Data on September 18. My topic will be “Developing a Centralized Repository Strategy: The Top Three Critical Success Factors.’
On September 9, I will be on a panel at the Midwest Hospital Cloud Forum in Chicago. The panel is titled, “Closing the Loop in Healthcare Analytics – Correlating Clinical and Administrative Systems with Research Efforts to Deliver Clinical Efficiency in Real Time.” I have posted slides on my initial thoughts on national trends related to the topic.
On a side topic, I was interviewed by Deanna Pogorelc of MedCityNews (a Cleveland news outlet) on the topic of “A healthcare innovator’s guide to must-know tech terms for the next decade of medicine.” I address the topics of Artificial intelligence/algorithm medicine and the Internet of Things
More on analytics and innovation in future weeks.
