Avoiding IT HIPAA Hazards
With the passage of the Omnibus Final Ruling in September, 2013, many healthcare IT directors were faced with a seemingly simple question by their organizations’ senior management: “are we or aren't we HIPAA Compliant .” It seems like a simple question, but ever since the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996, hospitals, group practices and other covered entities have struggled with their response. Even with fifteen years to prepare, many providers were still scrambling to meet all the requirements defined in the Omnibus Rule. Rob Humphreys, product manager, eFax Corporate
Driving In A Blinding Snowstorm Is A Lot Like Alert Fatigue
We talk a lot about alert fatigue in HealthIT. It’s a real thorny problem; of that there is no argument. When I think about this problem, I liken it to that experienced during a dark winter’s night when driving in a blinding snowstorm with thousands of snowflakes illuminated by your headlights creating hypnotizing effect on the driver. This effect distracts the driver so much that they may run off the road, or rear end the car ahead or even worse – hitting poor little Bambi! By George Robinson, RPh, senior product manager, FDB

Healthcare dashboards are often computers screens, printouts, or other displays that allow hospitals and healthcare organizations to monitor and gain greater insight into their key performance indicators (KPIs). Based on the goals of the organization, dashboards can be customized to display any relevant information and can be updated in real-time to allow for quick and simple monitoring.
Dashboards can also be customized to show data relevant to hospital administrators, patients, physicians, and other stakeholders. Dashboards provide users with a simple way to pull reports and monitor quality of care, while acting as an easy clinical decision aide tool. Dashboards are beneficial to doctors, nurses, and staff because they provide a very quick overview, often with charts and graphs, allowing busy individuals to quickly take in the necessary information and make appropriate decisions.
