Abstract

Bio: Paul Peabody recently joined Bronson Healthcare as vice president, information technology and chief information officer. He came to Bronson as an experienced healthcare CIO and has installed and worked extensively with the EPIC electronic health records platform. He specializes in all aspects of healthcare operations, project management, information systems and software development. Peabody earned his Bachelor of Science in healthcare administration from the University of Michigan.

Abstract: Implementing an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is just the beginning of a long and challenging journey. Since the passage of the HITECH Act in 2009 and the subsequent creation of Meaningful Use criteria, adoption of Electronic Health Records have sky rocketed. Hospitals that have installed an EHR have increased from 13.4% in 2008 to 83.2% in 2015. Physician adoption has grown from 41% in 2008 to 80% in 2015. Comprehensive EHRs that meet Meaningful Use criteria have grown from 1.6% in 2008 to 34.4% in 2015. The importance of adopting a comprehensive EHR will continue as health systems focus on improving the overall health in the communities they serve. Population Health requires connected EHRs across the continuum of care that are interoperable to share secure patient information. But the journey has just begun. Physician satisfaction with their EHR has declined from 61% in 2010 to 34% in 2014. Providing an efficient and effective EHR toolset for clinicians has become a major priority for many health care organizations. This discussion will focus on improvements that will lead us toward the next generation of Electronic Health Records.
