With the U.S. health information systems market expected to see higher growth over the next seven years in the non-clinical segment, it’s safe to say we’re now in the post-EHR era. This shift means it’s high time for hospitals to take a close look at how their data is being processed from one system to the next and where gaps might be causing errors resulting in financial loss. This is especially important as hospitals face decreasing reimbursements and increasing operating costs.
In fact, these types of pressures are impacting the way you should look at every part of your business, including making sure that the environment and technologies that you provide best fit your staff’s needs and work styles. Due to the large amounts of data healthcare organizations accumulated via their EHR and HIS, data management can seem somewhat daunting. However, if you’ve structured your hospital for successful data management
, you can reap the financial benefits of a more productive staff and efficient workflow.
