As the Northwest Ohio area’s only academic medical center, the University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) delivers high-level physician education, while managing a 233-bed hospital for patients as well as 34 specialty clinics. This broad, complex level of responsibility needs a comprehensive, robust interoperability system to connect its different EHR systems so residents, physicians, and technicians can access data whenever, wherever they are.
With more than a half-dozen disparate systems, UTMC needs a reliable, robust system to tie everyone together so providers have critical access to patient data from the classroom to the operating theatre.
Read this case study to learn how the Mirth® solution has delivered to all of these requirements and enabled University of Toledo.

The laboratory is a strategic asset for your organization. Laboratory data comprises the majority of medical records and is critical for accurate diagnoses. Physicians depend on reliable laboratory result data to deliver optimal care. Efficiency is critical for laboratory success; it enables your lab to ensure patient safety, reduce operating costs and increase revenue. STARLIMS offers clinical laboratories a powerful solution suite, which includes configurable tools to manage complex testing workflows, enforce rules-based actions, promptly format and deliver laboratory results to clinicians by their preferred method, track and route bar-coded specimens within the lab and across the network for more efficiency, as well as distribute and manage bio specimen inventories.
The EHR should help your physicians, not hinder them. That’s why a little EHR coaching up front can go a long way toward alleviating their frustration and burnout. Read on for five things you can do to start your physicians off on the right foot with your EHR.
Hospitals and other healthcare organizations must contend with a daunting set of challenges when deploying mobile technology. That’s why it’s important to develop a carefully planned mobility strategy. To be successful, your strategy will need strong senior level leadership, commitment, funding and resources. An interdisciplinary team should be gathered— including nursing, physicians, pharmacy, IT, ancillary care, biomedical engineering and finance—to develop a vision for a common technology infrastructure that supports all staff across the organization. This white paper highlights a five-step roadmap for building an effective mobility strategy.

Physicians and their patients, medical policy makers and licensing boards, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies all must work together to stem the opioid epidemic and achieve the fundamental objectives of reducing addiction and deaths. With so many players and data sources, today’s information is partial, fragmented, and often not actionable. We don’t have the data to understand what’s happening, to adjust policy, and to motivate physicians and patients to change their behaviors.
Better data and analytics can help develop better treatment protocols, both for pain in the first place and for remediation when patients are becoming dependent on the drugs.

In 2010, Queens Pediatrics began evaluating Electronic Health Record (EHR) solutions to improve access to patient records. The practice’s affiliation with North Shore LIJ prompted it to evaluate solutions from Allscripts. North Shore LIJ is the largest user of Allscripts system and provides a financial subsidy to its affiliated practices that adopt the solutions.
The challenge for Queens Pediatrics was the small size of its offices, which didn’t provide enough room for multiple workstations or to move mobile computer carts through the hallways. “There were only two options. The physicians either had to use a laptop or we had to have a PC in each room, and that doesn’t work well in a pediatric office,” said Janette Finn, the Practice Manager at Queens Pediatrics.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
