EHRs among top technology priorities for health care executives

Electronic health records are among the top 10 technologies that health care executives should pay close attention to this year, according to a new report from research firm ECRI Institute, Healthcare IT News reports.
The report — titled, “Top 10 C-Suite Watch List: Hospital Technology Issues for 2012” — aims to help health care executives prioritize their efforts to implement and improve health care technologies.

In its discussion of EHRs, the report notes that medical device integration and the federal meaningful use program ultimately aim to improve health care and patient safety. Successful deployment should not only ensure reimbursement, but also enhance patient safety and quality of care, facilitate nursing workflow and increase physician and nursing satisfaction.
