Healthcare technology blossoms in hospitals, clinics

NewsObserver.com / Kansas City Star, July 12, 2013

The Truman Medical Centers' Hospital Hill hospitals and the system's health IT partner, Cerner, are recognized as leaders in IT transformation. The Kansas City-based hospital has achieved the highest level of health IT adoption as measured by Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Analytics. Truman reached a "Level 7" status for its electronic health records, a ranking held by less than 2 percent of U.S. hospitals. Nationally, about three-fourths of hospitals and about half of office-based doctors have adopted some kind of electronic health records system. That starts with scanning into computer systems the paperwork that has filled the manila folders that have lined the walls of medical offices for decades.
