Transcripts - 6 Tips for Healthcare Organizations to Extract the Most Value from Electronic Health Records - Mike Doyle, QPID Health, Inc.
Many healthcare organizations have not seen a return on their costly investment in Electronic Health Records (EHR),
according to Mike Doyle, President & Chief Executive Officer, QPID Health, Inc. The data may be there in the system, but
that is not enough. The next step for Chief Medical Information Officers (CMIOs) should be to help clinicians extract value
from the records, he advises.
QPID Health is a solution provider at the marcus evans National Healthcare CMO/CMIO Summit 2015, in Atlanta,
Georgia, March 9-10. Ahead of the Summit, Doyle gives us an overview of how hospitals can improve healthcare by
extracting the most value from their EHRs. The QPID system extracts actionable clinical information from both unstructured
notes and structured data fields in the EHR.
Enable clinicians to get meaning from the data. Having the data is necessary but not sufficient. Physicians need to
understand the full history of the patient without having to dig through tons of records. Software needs to do the work of
delivering the essential patient narrative.
Activate clinical intelligence. Make data extractable at the optimal time in the clinical workflow. A lot of data stays in the
record but is never utilized because it is located in multiple places in the record. This leads to sub-optimal patient outcomes
and over-utilization of resources.
Learn from your encounters. Implement a technology that helps you get better and better. QPID is built using the know-
how of experienced clinicians and in effect makes every clinician the smartest in the room.
Combat medical errors. Use EHRs to catch potential issues in advance. Look for risk factors associated with the particular
procedure (such as metal in the body for an MRI) and improve patient safety. This type of advance planning eliminates last
minute cancellations that could have been avoided.
Eliminate repeat tests and associated costs. As much as a third of healthcare spending in the US is due to unnecessary
procedures and tests. Many physicians may be unaware that the same test had been ordered a few weeks or months prior
to the patient’s visit. Insurance companies do not necessarily pay for the second test. Awareness of prior tests ad proce-
dures is critical to reduce costs and burden on the patient.
Find clinical documentation to support the reimbursement level you deserve. Reimbursement is increasingly tied to
proper documentation of diagnoses and procedures. QPID helps staff quickly uncover whether the proper documentation
exists for billing and risk-adjusted coding.
