By William A. Hyman – One feature of EHRs is the ability to provide prompts to clinicians about the care being provided to their patients. Such prompts, generally called Clinical Decision Support are usually driven by practice guidelines or derived from AI efforts.
By Luis Castillo – No matter who your patient is, there’s no way to avoid a certain degree of risk. If there were, preventing readmissions would be a much easier prospect. But even if we can’t eliminate risk entirely, we can certainly manage it.
By Anish Sebastian – Whether it’s stock trading with a few clicks on a smartphone, streaming new music before the vinyls hit the shelves, or receiving a wardrobe from a personal stylist without ever stepping into a store, technology’s potential to revolutionize the consumer experience is ubiquitous across industries.
By Jeffrey Brady MD, MPH – At the inaugural meeting, an important theme emerged at that first meeting: We are reaching the limits of what can be achieved by the familiar project-by-project or problem-by-problem approach to improving care.
By Dr. Arlene Bierman – We are only just beginning to harness the power of “real world data” to provide the evidence needed to improve health care quality, safety, and outcomes.

By Dr. Elizabeth Marshall – “You can’t save everyone” I painfully remind myself after hearing about the fentanyl overdose of the 29-year-old man that we so desperately tried to help over the years. A man that floated in and out of our lives.
By Waqaas Al-Siddiq – The most urgent problem facing the U.S. healthcare system today is cost. Traditional factions of political party affiliation, socio-economic status, and patient-payer-provider categorization all agree that the astronomical costs of the current system are not sustainable—and only increasing.
By Jack Plotkin – Over the last 10 years, the healthcare industry has experienced a major shift in both the prevalence and importance of information technology. EHRs have progressed from bleeding edge, to basic requirement, to competitive differentiator.
By Tommy White – Most healthcare providers understand that the majority of patient care doesn’t take place in the doctor’s office during a visit. Rather, much of healthcare happens between visits.
