Health IT tip of the day: Synergy of workflow solutions

Achieving true workflow-based care management requires not only the right tools, but having those tools work together.

Eric Grafals, director of care management for Mennonite Healthcare System in Cayey, Puerto Rico: "EHRs and analytics alone do not provide the intelligence required for true workflow-based care management; these tools are, however, critical components of any population health management strategy — and interoperability between these tools is imperative. Still, if solutions don't collectively come together to create point-of-care workflows, they will fall short in offering critical real-time care management support."
