CMIO News to Know for the Week of Dec 16th

This week I cover 5 articles. The first is about a Florida medical group that got fined y the OCR for not releasing records to a patient. Watch for this; the government is ramping up legal action against providers that are information blocking. The second article is about real time location tracking apps to help locate you patient transport teams and find the bottlenecks in your system. Very cool tech and it sounds incredibly simple to roll out. The third article is a review of how EHRs are still a pain in the butt, but getting better. The fourth is about remote patient monitoring for lung transplant patients, which I think is a phenomenal use case. Finally, I review an article about population health analytic tools. A challenging space to be in and there are lots of difficulties with executing this analytic project well.
