I’m not sure I agree completely with this tweet. I don’t know enough about Covery My Meds to say either way. Although, I wondered if many EMRs will integrate with Covery My Meds. From my experience, EMR vendors don’t want to interface with many outside software companies. A few embrace outside companies interfacing with them. We’ll see if that changes over time.

I haven’t had a chance to look at this study yet, but did anyone think that quality of care would improve because of MU?
Wellness tracking/apps mentioned in every #iht2 session so far. Reaffirms huge amount of patient data exists outside of EMR.

No doubt we’ll eventually have outside data from wellness tracking apps incorporated in EMR, but I don’t think it will ever be a free for all. There are tens of thousands of wellness apps and I don’t see doctors wanting data from just any app. They’ll want to only get data from apps they trust. That’s a high bar for most apps. Plus, once you win the trust of one doctor, you still have to win the trust of all the other doctors. There’s not a trusted third party that doctors look to for apps.
