Are Enterprise Intelligence Resources the new EMRs? 6 insights

As technology continues to transform healthcare, electronic medical records are no longer advanced enough to meet the industry's demands, according to Advance Healthcare Network.

Here are six insights:

1. EMRs often slow clinical processes, resulting in less productivity. Providers experience usability difficulties, which interferes with the provider-patient experience.

2. The technology does not allow real-time, patient-centric care that the industry demands to enhance safety and quality.

3. Healthcare analysts believe the industry requires "Enterprise Intelligence Resources," which combine real-time clinical intelligence, business intelligence and predictive analytics.

4. EIRs work with EMRs to integrate data from various sources to enhance patient outcomes and improve efficiency.

5. By harnessing real-time and retrospective metadata, EIRs reduce medical errors, decrease readmissions and fix gaps in care.

6. Unlike EMRs, EIRs use business intelligence to analyze hospital performance, improving efficiency and streamlining care delivery.
