Patricia and Kimberly joined us to share how Inova Health System is progressing on key initiatives like ICD-10 and MU, where they are having challenges and where they are experiencing “wins”. The conversation gets very interesting early focusing on Patricia’s and Kimberly’s backgrounds as nurses and how and why it’s important to build nursing perspective into IT implementations.
We discuss the following with Patricia and Kimberly on this episode:
