Mostashari: Slow but steady interoperability progress

National coordinator for health IT Farzad Mostashari, MD discussed interoperability and the path moving forward at the HIMSS 2013 Government Health IT Conference this week where he summarized the current state of interoperability in saying, "Today, my last visit doesn’t contribute to my next visit in healthcare. Most discharge summaries don’t get to the primary care provider; most referral summaries don’t get back to the provider who ordered them.”

  1. Jesus, Marshfirld is still trying to flog Cattails? Or are they just trying to get rid of it and their IT Department at the same time?

  2. Re GE, I think you accidentally recycled a headline from about 4 years ago. Wasn’t that what Qualibria was supposed to be?

  3. @farzad_onc states: “Today, my last visit doesn’t contribute to my next visit in healthcare. Most discharge summaries don’t get to the primary care provider; most referral summaries don’t get back to the provider who ordered them”

    How little he knows of the misidentifications, orders for disease critical tests that never reach the ancillary service, wrong and incomplete medication lists, incorrect tests being done due to order transformation between physician and recipient, error messages and system freezes, and worse yet, not getting the results.

    It takes my doctors hours of time to sort out the mess from the EHR and CPOE systems, all due to interoperability failures. Has it gotten any better over the past 5 years? NOPE.
