Mark joined us to share how Asante Health System is progressing on key initiatives like ICD-10 and MU, where they are having challenges and where they are experiencing “wins”. Mark has led Asante’s IT for an unprecedented 21 years and is a big part of why #HealthIT is so progressive in Southern Oregon.
We discuss the following with Mark on this episode:
- How would you describe your pursuit of Meaningful Use? What would you do differently now that you have several years experience pursuing MU?
- What is your take on ICD-10? Will it happen this year? Are you ready?
- #BigData was the huge buzzword at HIMSS’14 and #PredictiveAnalytics seems to be the buzzword for this year. Do you have any current initiatives in either area?
- This also seems to be the year to have a real conversation about Population Health? Do you have any current plans or projects in this area?
- We hear almost every week about a data breach in Healthcare. Is it possible for you to sleep at night when you think about the security/privacy of your data?
- We want to give you a chance to brag a little on your team back home. Can you tell us about a successful project that you completed this year and what you learned from it?
- What do you hope to accomplish at HIMSS’15?
- What are your most important initiatives in 2015?
