Currently at HIMSS meeting in San Francisco. The first presentation was from Microsoft outlining the use of their Amalga product at NYP. (NYP.org). Amalga is a powerful tool that can pull info from many disparate systems and output the info in a CCR format.
Second presenatation was from Dr Chan at Palo Alto Medical Foundation. He talked about the use of their tethered patient portal. Check out pamfonline.com. 48% of PAMF patients are active users of the system. PAMF also incentivizes docs to perform e-consults – very cool stuff.
