EHRs & Data Exchange

Despite the proliferation of EHRs and digital imaging devices, workflow efficiency has frequently been hobbled by proprietary standards—but that may be changing.

And Stage 2 of the government’s meaningful use (MU) regulations places an increased focus on the free flow of electronic health information, both in terms of MD-MD communications and MD-patient communications.

In this EyeNet Extra, experts share tips on MU regulations and pearls on integrating diagnostic devices with EHRs.
