EHRs and healthcare data

Jenna Duchter


“In the next 10 years, data science and software will do more for medicine than all of the biological sciences together,” said venture capitalist Vinod Khosla. Data science holds great promise for patient health, but patient data is only actionable in so far as it is digital. This is where electronic health records come in. By 2019, the majority of physicians will have adopted a basic EHR system, and with good reason, too. EHRs may reduce outpatient care costs by 3 percent.

This “Electronic Health Records & the Data of Health Care” infographic from datascience@berkeley explores the health data revolution, the difference between electronic medical records and EHRs, which states and practices adopted electronic systems, and what the future of the digital health industry looks like. Get ready for the next wave of medical innovation.

It seems just about everybody has a gripe or two concerning the meaningful use program: software vendors that make electronic health records systems, hospital CIOs, the very people charting the related committees and, of course, physicians.

 

Whether that means it’s time to trim the EHR program’s sails, turn the boat around, or abandon ship entirely is becoming a matter of increasingly winded debate.

 

And product certification is perhaps fanning those arguments more than any other aspect of meaningful use now.
