Trend Update — Electronic Medical Records: View From HIMSS

The 2009 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference was in Chicago this week, and was obviously energized by the stimulus money in the U.S. and the budget allocation in Canada, which have greatly increased the available funding for Electronic Medical Records.

There’s a great overview of trends at HIMSS from Dr. John D. Halamka, chief information officer and dean for technology at Harvard Medical School, at his blog: Life as a Healthcare CIO.

His headlines: Stimulus; Economy; Software as a Service; Security; Open Source; PHR; Appliances for HIE; Home Healthcare Care/Telemedicine; Performance Measurement and Outcomes; and Decision Support.
