Since the state of HIT is constantly evolving, it’s critical for health professionals to share their opinions on the applications and systems on the market. You, the readers of this blog, are highly interested – or even invested – in health IT. Make your thoughts on the industry’s technology heard!
Do your part to help assess the trends, impacts and issues facing healthcare IT: participate in the third bi-annual Health IT Survey, co-sponsored this year by the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians (ABQAURP), the Case Management Society of America (CMSA), Schooner Healthcare Services (SHS) and TCS Healthcare Technologies (TCS).
The Health IT Survey is being administered to provide stakeholders with data to help them better understand how various health IT applications are impacting the case management field. It aims to:
- Review interoperability and integration interfaces;
- Identify existing and future communication links;
- Highlight data reporting and predictive modeling capabilities;
- Spotlight user satisfaction ratings for key software applications;
- Track consumer and provider access to health information;
- Report on emerging transitions of care and readmission prevention programs; and
- Discuss the future impact of health IT systems on the practice of case management.
“A core objective of the survey is to assess how health information systems are impacting case management software applications and related IT functions,” says Rob Pock, TCS Healthcare Technologies’ founder and CEO. “The survey also will examine how applications are being used by patients, providers, payors, care managers, and others to support emerging themes such as transitions of care and social media.”
The survey questionnaire, available here (scroll to the bottom) is open to case managers and other health care professionals until July 14, 2012. For more information on the survey or past survey results, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
