Making Use of Meaningful Use - Working Towards Statewide HIE

As medical practices and technologies have advanced, the delivery of sophisticated, high-quality medical care has come to require teams of health care providers—primary care physicians, specialists, nurses, technicians, and other clinicians.

Each member of the team tends to have specific, limited interactions with the patient and, depending on the team member's area of expertise, a somewhat different view of the patient. In effect, the health care team's view of the patient can become fragmented into disconnected facts and clusters of symptoms. Health care providers need less fragmented views of patients.
