Video: Medical Diagnosis Decision Influences Accountable Care

Posted by Megan Pennie on Fri, Mar 02, 2012 @ 10:35 AM

Jason Maude, Founder and CEO of Isabel Healthcare, talks about the influence that accountable care will have for patients, especially at the diagnostic stage.

Diagnosis will be ever more important as all costs and subsequent decisions about a patient are based on and influenced by getting a correct diagnosis as early as possible. Accountable Care begins at the diagnostic stage. Clinicians now have the incentive of being paid to "think" about a patient more than "doing" tests or procedures. This paradigm shift puts a strong emphasis on the very first decision made about a patient: diagnosis. It is the single most important decision about a patient.

Integrating Diagnosis Decision Support with EMR

Posted by Don Bauman on Tue, Jan 10, 2012 @ 01:49 PM

As hospitals and healthcare systems begin to prepare for changes in reimbursement and phase two of meaningful use, optimizing the investment in their EMR purchase will be essential.  One of the most impactful ways to optimize an EMR, especially for physicians, is to provide value added tools within the EMR that incent them to use the EMR.  Clinical decision support can assist in both optimizing the EMR but also drive efficiency throughout the system. 

In the era of changing reimbursement, ACO, bundled payments, pay-for-outcome, it is critical to determine the patient’s diagnosis as soon as possible and get them on the appropriate treatment plan or guideline as soon as possible.  It will be imperative to minimize readmissions, unnecessary testing and the costs associated with them-this starts with getting the diagnosis correct as soon as possible. Today, in 15-30% of the cases there is error or delay in reaching a diagnosis.  Embedding, or providing access through the EMR to diagnosis decision support that can assist with constructing a differential can aid efficient performance.
