The critical demands of managing electronic health records are complex and complicated. Since the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, offering hospitals and healthcare providers more than $20 billion to transform, manage and maintain their information infrastructures from “paper” to electronic images for patient portability of medical records.
Ninety-eight percent of hospitals participating in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs, have demonstrated meaningful use and/or adopted, implemented or upgraded (AIU) any EHR. What most hospitals aren’t recognizing is that more than 60-70% of printed documents originate from the EHR system, a system that should decrease print.
There is a lot at stake for hospitals that are not prepared for the paradigm shift that is taking place throughout our healthcare industry for gathering, storing, sharing and managing information, as well as all the associated costs.
