This was presented at Health 2.0’s HxRefactored 2014 Conference in Brooklyn.
Background: * Many enterprise apps are being built these days, but most are designed to work as a stand alone system similar to consumer apps * Healthcare-specific software engineering and integration tools are going to do more harm than good (industry-neutral is better).
Key Takeaways: * Any enterprise app which acts like a consumer app that doesn’t integrate well into hospital or ambulatory systems and workflows is doomed * There’s nothing unique about health IT data that justifies complex, expensive, or special technology. * There’s a lot unique about healthcare workflows that require common technologies to be adapted properly.
Technology, consulting, and solutions focused on firms impacted by FDA, ONC, NIST or other safety, privacy, and security regulations.
