The Reality of EMR Integration for Medical Devices

Tim provides a good starting point for understanding this in EMR Integration for Medical Devices: The Basics.

What this highlights of course is that getting data from a medical device into an EMR is a lot harder than it should be. “It’s not pretty” is an understatement.  In the ideal world nobody should have to be connectologist to get medical data where it needs to be.  Unfortunately, we have a long way to go before that becomes a reality.

  • I’ve been reading a lot of posts on FDA regulating mobile apps. Are any of these apps paired with behavioral health software systems? If so, is that a viable option for using external devices to input data into EMRs and EHRs? Or does the issue have more to do with a lack of consistency on how data is entered?
