At our 2012-2013 national meeting series, we've been providing key lessons for optimizing CV IT in our presentation "The Information-Powered CV Enterprise". This research offers guidance for CV administrators on establishing an effective CVIS strategy, and best practices for using health IT to improve quality, coordinate care, and reduce costs.
For those of you who weren’t able to make the meeting, there’s still a chance to catch what you missed with our two-part webconference series.
Webconference alert: The Information-Powered CV Enterprise, Part II
Nicole MacMillan, Cardiovascular Roundtable
As health IT becomes increasingly pervasive, we must continue to seek out new ways to optimize these technologies for cardiovascular services. Perhaps one of the most divisive is the clinical decision support system (CDSS).
At the recent CMIO Leadership Summit on Transforming Healthcare through Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM12), one presentation focused specifically on how to engage physicians in CDSS and the myriad challenges in doing so.
We address this challenge in this year’s national meeting presentation “The Information-Powered Cardiovascular Enterprise.”
How can CV programs boost clinical decision support system adherence?
Eric Bushlow, Cardiovascular Roundtable
Medication management remains challenging for providers as patients continue to be readmitted for non-compliance with medication. With readmission penalties looming and the gradual shift to value-based models of care, programs must rethink how they can help modify patient behavior outside the hospital setting.
New technologies offer some promise in resolving adherence issues, leveraging reminders and behavioral modification to boost compliance. However many of these solutions have seen limited provider adoption aiming to address the growing readmissions problem.
