Gizmodo Praises drchrono
Never before, at least that I know of or can imagine, has someone been paid tens of thousands of dollars to use such a sleek, professional, and just plain cool product such as the iPad 2. However, that’s just the situation that drchrono’s iPad EHR has set up for its users. Gizmodo covers the story here.
The government will pay $44,000 to people who show meaningful use of the drchrono EHR technology. That’s pretty amazing for a product that is FREE.
Putting the Future in Doctors’ Hands, Now
The first ever native iPad EHR app, drchrono, has raised $675,000 in their last round of funding to bring the world into the space of mobile health in a major way. Our team could not be happier as we set forth to revolutionize the health care industry like never before.
Of course what I’m excited about is not the industry itself, but what the meaning translates into for patients. Better health care.
Usability is the Most Important Factor for EHR Adoption
Why is anything successful? Because people like to use it. Usability drives the doctor to pick it up because they enjoy the interface. They enjoy how they are in the driver’s seat, and it’s why people generally enjoy driving a Porsche over a Ford Taurus.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter as much how important EHR’s are to improve health care delivery, or to list all of the benefits of electronic storage of health information. Rambling on about $44K stimulus packages, Obamacare, electronic prescribing, immunization registries, or medication reconciliation will only get you so far.
Health care professionals desire a new approach because they all know the one they’re using now isn’t quite cutting it. They are thirsty for something innovative, easy to use, and elegantly beautiful. Usability will drive EHR growth, leaving all others variables behind.
Case in point, Kalorama Information released a study March 1st, 2011, exploring the EHR world. EHR growth is expected to increase 15% per year until 2015. Kalorama Information found in their study that it’s the usability of the EHR that will be the ultimate deciding factor in the growth market for EHR’s.
Practice management is the second biggest segment, predicted to grow at nearly 11% per year until 2015.
