Electronic health records signal changes in hospital IT strategies

“Scott MacLean, the chief information officer at Newton Wellesley Hospital, has a bird’s eye view of what it really means to comply with the “Meaningful Use” guidelines the federal government has established to determine whether or not hospitals and doctors will be eligible for financial incentives tied to electronic health records initiatives. He is the CIO of a community hospital, but it’s part of the largest health-care delivery system in the state, Partners HealthCare, which also owns large teaching hospitals Massachusetts General Hospital and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He spoke to Mass High Tech about where the rubber meets the road, in trying to move from gathering health data, to using that data to improve quality and reducing costs.”
