Frost & Sullivan: Health Tech Vendors See Biz Opportunity in EHR Data Retrieval - top government contractors - best government contracting event

electronic health record EHR A new Frost & Sullivan study says investments from government and healthcare providers have facilitated increased usage of electronic health records and have placed EHR retrieval as an important service priority.

Frost & Sullivan said Thursday the “EHR Usability“”CIOs Weigh in On What’s Needed to Improve Information Retrieval” report notes hindrances in EHR usage, such as speed and accuracy of data retrieval and review, support for targeted queries and unstructured data and time spent in data entry.

Nancy Fabozzi, a Frost & Sullivan Connected Health principal analyst, said these issues can present opportunities for healthcare technology providers in the areas of natural language processing and data visualization.

“Data visualization dashboards will enable end-users to quickly understand data trends, significantly enhancing ease-of-use by streamlining and organizing vast amounts of data,” she said.

“The ability to triangulate EHR data with data from other sources is also crucial to ensure access to the right medical information for healthcare providers.”

For this customer research study, Frost & Sullivan said it surveyed IT professionals in the U.S. healthcare sector with the help of the College of Health Information Management Executives as part of the company’s Connected Health Growth Partnership Service program.
