John and David joined us to discuss recent Navin Haffty Studies that Show MEDITECH Hospitals Are More Profitable and Have Better Clinical Quality Scores than Hospitals that use Cerner and Epic. Specifically, we discuss the following with John and David on this episode:
- (1:59) One of the reasons that we wanted to have you on the show is because you’ve recently completed a couple studies comparing the performance of hospitals in terms of quality scores and profitability based on which EMR they are using. Will you first tell us what motivated you to do such important studies and then how you went about doing the studies?
- (5:35) What are some of those things (why results show better clinical quality scores at MEDITECH hospitals) that you speculate?
- (11:16) Have you added specifics components to your implementation methodology to help MEDITECH hospitals achieve higher clinical scores?
- (13:15) You also studied the correlation of the EMR products with hospital profitability, what did you find there?
- (25:55) What is the next step of your efforts to study the market?
