As implementations mature and integration with 3rd party applications and entities expand, the focus is shifting towards optimal utilization of the treasure troves of data contained within medical records. Research programs, statistical reporting, and regulatory data reporting requirements – these all use the data found in interfaced records.
Many hospitals, especially early implementers, are finding an unexpected challenge in this reporting though; the quality of data isn’t near as high as it could and should be.
Implementing comprehensive Interface Error Management Policies & Procedures, and the tools that go with such can prevent data loss and incomplete patient charts.
While every organization is different, and varying conditions may make some of the avenues more or less relevant, the likelihood of overall significant costs associated with the lack of a comprehensive Interface Error Management strategy is sufficient to warrant serious attention by most healthcare organizations.
