TITLE

The Long Journey: Building Quality and Safety within the Electronic Health Record at Memorial Hermann

ABSTRACT

Electronic health records have long been advocated to improve healthcare quality and safety, but many implementations have failed to achieve lofty expectations. Memorial Hermann (Houston, TX USA) took a long-term, deliberate and strategic approach by developing clinical governance and building solid foundations for later deployment of computerized physician order entry, advanced clinical decision support and quality informatics. This presentation will cover the 15-year approach at Memorial Hermann with examples of successes and the ongoing challenges that are still present.
