‘Big Data’ for Cancer Care

Healthcare Workarounds Expose EHR Flaws

A Journal of American Medical Informatics Association study explores workarounds frequently adopted by clinicians using EHR software and studies the various reasons that the workarounds were needed in the first place. Often, the study found, they were needed due to a lack of functionality within the the HER. Sometimes, however, it was just more efficient to employ the workaround than to follow the designed workflow. Other workarounds were built into the clinicians’ workflow to help them remember to complete tasks or to allow them to bring information into the examination room, where they would sometimes be without a computer.

  1. So they are marring Orion now So from what I see Caradigm is just a broker for other vendors projects, Sentillion built the ESO and Identity Management systems, a group of physicians designed and build what was the the original Amalga solution that has been repackaged as the Caradigm™ Intelligence Platform. Those are two of the three legs under their stool. In looking at their website it looks like they are becoming a broker for other firms technology as the majority of what they peddle is the intellectual property they have either bought, borrowed, or were given by either GE or Microsoft. So their value escapes me. Why not purchase the solutions from the principal vendors. Leave it to their leadership to make something out of nothing.
