Op-Ed: No One Wants to Go to the 5th Worst Cardiologist

Op-Ed No One Wants to Go to the 5th Worst CardiologistThe following is a guest contributed post by Nuance President Trace Devanny.

Technology has radically shifted how we approach and solve problems, and this is something I witnessed continually watching my kids grow up.  Younger generations are hard-wired to research online—they don’t know any other way—and they rely on this data for everything, whether they’re looking up NFL stats while drafting their fantasy football teams or buying a car.

Electronic Medical Records Not Living Up to Expectations

Electronic Medical Records Not Living Up to ExpectationsWhile there are many advantages to electronic medical records, they still have a long way to go when it comes to account care organization (ACO) needs. In fact, their shortcomings are leading many physician-led ACO’s to turn to third-party vendors to close the gap.

These findings were gathered by KLAS Research, which interviewed 46 physician-led ACO’s. An astounding 68% utilized a third-party vendor, opposed to an EMR vendor. Their primary reasons for turning to third-party vendors were related to reporting, care management, connectivity, and risk stratification.
