I cover 5 things in the news this week that I think CMIOs should follow. 1) The Microsoft and Providence St. Joseph Health partnership to create a cutting edge hospital should produce AMAZING things. Definitely follow this story. 2) Novant is moving their EMR data to the cloud, and many others will follow. 3) ICD-10 released their latest updates; as a CMIO that impacts our groupers. 4) HIMSS TV posted a 5 minute overview on Blockchain for healthcare. Worth a listen. 5) CMS has a RFI out there for Patients over Paperwork. Get your input submitted before August 12th.
