Designing for Data First - Rapidly Deliver Data from an EHR
February 22, 2017 — 10:00AM - 11:00AM EST
Orange County Convention Center
The promise of Electronic Health Records was to transform medicine into a more data driven industry. Following billions of dollars of investment, pulling data from EHRs has been difficult for many institutions and while the EHR contains a great deal of data, extraction is slow and costly. Using a data first strategy, MD Anderson installed an enterprise wide EHR and on the second day of operation was able to move over one thousand columns of data into its stand alone data warehouse. The presenters will discuss the tools and approaches necessary to succeed in a data first strategy as well as techniques for overcoming organizational obstacles. This presentation will be valuable for organizations preparing to install a new EHR and ones where they must get data out of an existing one.
