The EHR App Store Is Open – What Is on the Shelf?

1:30pm - 2:30pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo G

Description

With just about every EHR vendor staking a claim in “openness” and plug-and-play with startups through APIs, developer portals, and “app stores” that promise to facilitate seamless delivery of third-party apps to empower patients and clinicians, we set out to compare and contrast the business models and underlying processes to understand whether such platforms are truly as open and portable as the vendors claim them to be. Moderated by Ken Kleinberg, VP of Chilmark Research, this panel will assess the value and integration of apps with patient portal, medical and connected devices, and care management plans, while discussing the potential of these app store models to bring innovation, competition, enhanced access, and collaboration to both patients and providers.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Review landscape of health IT vendors offering pick-and-choose app store solutions to patients and clinicians
  • Weigh risks and benefits of the app store models to startups, providers, and patients
  • Examine the necessary infrastructure needed to incorporate apps from EHR app store into clinical care or to make them available for patient use
  • Contrast vendor approaches to app integration and control, distribution to end users, revenue sharing, liability, and governance to determine which apps are safe and appropriate to offer to a patient or include in a medical record
