Geisinger Working Toward Real-Time Use of Patient Data

05/24/2016 | FierceHealthIT
Geisinger Health System is implementing a program to collect patient data via tablet computers while patients wait to see the doctor. Susan Hall of FierceHealthIT explains patients will complete surveys in the waiting room about chronic diseases, and the answers will be stored directly in the individual’s electronic health record. The program, called CareGaps, aims to apply data to improve patient care.
