"Tall Giraffe needs drink of water."

by Brian Anderson, MD, Senior Manager, Clinical Effectiveness

How cryptic have your text messages been to protect personal health information (PHI)?

Every day when I’m looking to communicate something important and time sensitive with my colleagues I immediately turn to my texting apps. It’s easy, it’s quick and it gets people’s attention when they receive a text. It’s one of the most frequently used modes of communication today.  Yet in medicine we are faced with multiple regulations and a regular need to communicate an incredibly complex patient case in as few words as possible, while running between exam rooms.

5 Essentials for Staying Independent

by Brian Anderson, MD, Senior Manager, Clinical Effectiveness

When I reflect on my training and residency, it’s clear I was never prepared to navigate the world of HCC codes, RAF scoring, and all the documentation needed to meet the standards for demonstrating improved clinical outcomes.

Five Ways to Improve Productivity with an EMR

by Brian Anderson, MD, Senior Manager, Clinical Effectiveness

One of the major reasons that health care providers resist implementing an electronic medical record (EMR) system is the belief that using it will decrease provider productivity, reducing the number of patients they can see and therefore reducing practice revenue. However, an EMR that is designed around a streamlined workflow can enable providers to work faster and more efficiently. Having an EHR and vendor that can give you ongoing visibility and insight into efficiency and productivity is essential to improving performance. For example, we’ve found that providers who utilize our recommended workflows, customized by specialty, complete with care pathways and templates, document 16.7% more quickly than those who do not.

Creating a “Business as Usual” ICD-10 Transition

by Brian Anderson, MD, Senior Manager, Clinical Effectiveness

If you read the health care IT trade publications as much as I do, and pay attention to the relevant ICD-10 tweets and social media mentions, you may be pretty confused as to what exactly will happen come the October 1st deadline. And those of you who choose to skip the media and go straight for the published reports are probably confused, too; one much-touted study on Canada’s ICD-10 transition, (which occurred between 2001 and 2005) found little impact in providers’ coding practices, while a HIMSS and WEDI report predicts a “perfect storm” is upon us.

Get to Know SNOMED (and Its Connection to ICD-10)

by Brian Anderson, MD, Senior Manager, Clinical Effectiveness

When I first heard of SNOMED during a medical school pathology rotation, images of cold winter flurries filled my head. Little did I know that, 12 years later, our industry would be on the verge of transitioning to SNOMED via a massive federal mandate.
