Tackling the tough issues

RMU’s Valerie Powell addresses some concerns regarding electronic medical records at Modearn Healthcare.com. Money quote:

The reason for integral communication among medical and dental providers is to optimize and support chronic care, the source of over 70% of costs of healthcare in the U.S., to optimally support prenatal care affecting the unborn, to optimally support pediatric care and to address the urgent multidisciplinary needs of patients at risk of osteoradionecrosis.

Powell is a university professor of computer and information systems, and an expert in health care information systems. Powell served on Gov. Ed Rendell’s Chronic Care Management, Reimbursement and Cost Reduction Commission.
