Interview with: Jonathan Levoy, VP of Business Development & Technology, Alego Health

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

All Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), will soon be connected and translated to mobile devices, says Jonathan Levoy, VP of Business Development & Technology, Alego Health. “Doctors must be able to get information when they are on the road visiting facilities, whether it be on a tablet device or smart phone,” he adds.

Ahead of the marcus evans National Healthcare CXO Summit Spring 2012, taking place in Hollywood, Florida, April 26-28, Levoy discusses the criticality of efficiency and mobile devices when implementing EMRs.

How can healthcare executives implement EMRs while making an impact on their bottom line?  

It is easier to train a clinician to do technical work, than teach an Information Technology (IT) major to do clinical work. The implementation of mobile devices can easily be accomplished through in-house employees; there is no need to spend time and money searching for high-end consultants. Utilize local talent that have experience and an interest in IT.

Instead of keeping the focus on the software and IT, it is advisable to make it about customer service and the experience of the physicians.

How can EMRs be used more efficiently?

Healthcare executives must first get used to the fact that paper records will soon no longer exist and EMRs are here to stay. They must work with the physician to ensure that they are comfortable with the software. The biggest challenge is getting used to doing things differently. The program must be user friendly so that users can process results and utilize the software as intended.

Efficiency is created by usage. Clinicians must initially get comfortable with the program. Giving too much to a person at once is detrimental to the overall success of the implementation. Healthcare executives can then go back and work on efficiency, number of clicks and learn how to navigate screens better.

Trying to teach a new product to someone is a difficult task. It is important to optimize the product, making it faster and easier to understand the program itself initially.

Are mobile devices currently being used to access EMR?

A lot will happen in the hospital environment in the next five years around efficiency and mobile devices.  

Soon, all EMRs will be connected and translated to mobile devices. Doctors must be able to get information when they need it. Speed and efficiency are paramount in the implementation of EMRs. Also the ability for physicians to access patient information from anywhere will make the transfer from paper to electronic storage more appealing to physicians as well as increase the level of patient care. These solutions are currently being offered through the use of tablet PCs and smart phones. As the use and experience level grows through these technologies so will the efficiency in day to day hospital operations.
