Although many provider organizations, physicians, and health plans see the value in moving from fee-for-service to value-based care, the problem can’t be solved by technology alone. Often, it is not only a technology problem – it’s a clinical workflow problem. The result of current practices is an alarming rate of physician burnout. Although government regulations and industry experts weigh in on the importance of both value-based care and interoperability separately, the two are interdependent. Electronic health records were made to improve healthcare, not impede it. Healthcare IT execs and physicians should work smarter, not harder, to solve for interoperability, exchange of data, and ease of use of electronic health records all in the name of reaching value-based care adoption and improving patient lives.
