August 10 (Wednesday) 12:30 ET. “Navigating healthcare’s data quality challenge: An actionable discussion.” Sponsor: Intelligent Medical Objects. Presenters: Alastair Allen, CTO, Better; Dale Sanders, chief strategy officer, IMO. Achieving a consolidated patient record is challenging in an environment of hospital M&A, where EHR rip-and-replace projects are expensive and HIEs and FHIR connectivity haven’t significantly accelerated progress. The underlying problem is that systems don’t speak the same language due to a lack of comprehensive, persistent clinical terminology and data standards adoption. UK-based Better offers a unique, FHIR-based approach to integrating disparate EHR data. The presenters will explore how to improve clinical data quality and how interoperable information can be used to support patient safety, reimbursement, and population health management.

Research and Innovation

MGMA’s latest report on costs and revenues finds that:

  • Productivity at physician-owned practices are lower than pre-pandemic/2019 levels.
  • Revenue increased last year, jumping especially at physician-owned, non-surgical practices.
  • Similar practices saw operating costs increase between 2020 and 2021.


Researchers determine that embedding digital versions of paper-based patient surveys within EHRs enables easier data collection, which in turn leads to increased research efficiency and decreased survey-related labor costs. Survey data can also be tied to a patient’s medical record for contextualization.
