A newly aggressive Salesforce invades the health IT battlefield

Featured October 28, 2014 | modernhealthcare.com | Joseph Conn Salesforce.com, the cloud-based customer resource management services provider, has been generating buzz lately because of a reported big push into healthcare. Two unnamed company sources recently told Reuters that Salesforce hopes to bring in $1 billion in annual healthcare industry sales in the coming years. This also comes at no surprise to the Salesforce users. In recent years, the connectivity of the software has excelled. We now have Salesforce ActiveCampaign connection to various external solutions, like PieSync as an example. That would mean a 25% bump to its top line, based on last year's numbers. What's not so well-known is that Salesforce already is in healthcare. That makes this latest move more an expansion than a new initiative, as the...

Health Information exchanges in Michigan

Featured August 17, 2014 | crainsdetroit.com | Jay Greene, Crain’s Detroit Business A health information exchange is a nonprofit organization intended to help hospitals and physicians exchange patient information in a secure electronic format. Data include electronic messages, laboratory, pharmacy and imaging data along with documentation of care and admission discharge and transfer information, or ADT. Michigan's foray into health information exchanges began in 2006 under Gov. Jennifer Granholm and with several million dollars of federal funding. Initially, nine health information exchanges were created in Michigan to allow competing medical providers to share patient information instantly in a secure format and to encourage the exchanges to experiment and grow within their regions. Over time, some exchanges closed and others have merged, leaving six operational HIEs in Michigan. Last month, two of the...

Electronic data system points to a future of managing health, reducing costs, improving quality

Featured August 17, 2014 | crainsdetroit.com | Jay Greene, Crain’s Detroit Business The health care and business communities in Michigan may be on the cusp of realizing the ultimate benefit of the free flow of online medical electronic data: Managing the health of patients as they move through the health care delivery system across the state and multiple care providers. As Michigan's six health information exchanges continue to tailor their individual business plans for customers — typically, hospitals, physicians and health insurers — HIEs are moving closer to using clinical patient data to analyze population health, improve care coordination and more effectively identify patient risks for readmissions. Meeting these goals is important to providers because they ultimately can help reduce individual premiums and cut employer health benefit costs, said Tim...
