Healthcare firms investing in EHRs, says Optimum Healthcare IT CEO

FLORIDA, UNITED STATES—Amid an evolving tech landscape, healthcare systems are continuously recognizing the value of electronic health record (EHR) platforms in their operations.

In an interview with HISTalk, Optimum Healthcare IT Chief Executive Officer Gene Scheurer pointed out that medical firms have made investments in their preferred EHRs to streamline operations.

EHR is the digital version of a patient’s medical history, which includes treatment plans, allergies, and radiology images, among other things. It allows hospitals to have an overview of the patient’s profile, which helps enhance healthcare delivery. 

“A lot of healthcare systems have financial headwinds. They have made a large investment in the EHRs of their choice. They are optimizing those to make them as efficient as possible. We are asked to do a lot of workflow redesign and revenue cycle projects,” Scheurer said.

Scheurer also noted that institutions are harnessing the power of AI to some degree. 

“A lot of it is embedded into the software, behind the curtain in a lot of ways, and people are using it one way or another even if they don’t realize it,” he noted.

More and more hospitals are learning that AI can help boost efficiency and positively affect patient care. 

Specifically, some hospital systems have hooked EHRs with AI systems to detect if an at-risk patient needs attention. Also, some suites have AI-equipped cameras mounted to aid in ambient patient monitoring.
