For those who don’t know, I’ve started a series of EMR, EHR and Healthcare IT video interviews with some of the leaders of our industry. You can attend the video interviews live and can ask questions on Twitter. If you want to receive email notifications of upcoming interviews, just subscribe on this page. Tomorrow I’ll be doing another video hangout on Hospital EHR and Healthcare Analytics with Dana Sellers and James Kouba.

The following video embed is from an interview I did with Sean Benson and Andre L’Heureux from Wolters Kluwer Health. We had a great discussion about the gap or white space between EMR software and what clinicians want them to do. We also talked about the challenge of integrating EMR with CDS systems. Plus, I asked them what EMR vendors could do to make the Smart EMR of the future possible. Their answer was quite interesting. We also discussed the challenge hospitals face of clinical knowledge management in their organization. Then, we wrapped up the conversation with a look at the WKH Innovation Lab’s sepsis project.

I think there’s a lot to be excited for when it comes to creating smart EHR and getting the most from clinical decision support systems. Enjoy the Smart EMR and CDS video interview embedded below.
