It’s Valentine’s Day and whether you love it or loathe it there’s one thing we can all agree on over at CommonWell: We Love Health IT! So, in honor of all the lovebirds out there, we wanted to give a few of our members the opportunity to sing the praises of advances in Health IT and how it has positively impacted on health care.
“I love healthcare technology because of its role in expanding collaboration across the care settings to optimize patient outcomes. In the past year, as providers and clinicians have become overwhelmed by the sheer volume and changing landscape of caring for COVID-19 patients and internal staffing issues, accessible and efficient healthcare technology has become even more crucial to patient care. Providers and clinicians require tools that enable them to easily access patient records across care settings and varied geographic locations, facilitating accurate and optimal decision-making. CommonWell is integral to this; joining healthcare IT vendors to work together in sharing information across the healthcare continuum, bridging the gaps, and breaking down barriers to reduce the “black holes” within the industry. It’s an exciting time to be involved with cutting edge technology that reduces silos and creates more successful care transitions. MatrixCare and the greater ResMed family embrace the philosophy of WellConnected; through our commitment to interoperability, our work with CommonWell, partnerships, and ongoing development of software solutions that continue to grow to meet the ever-changing needs of healthcare.”
