Coffee with Coker
Episode 76: Beyond EHR: Using Technology to Meet Growing Demands and Deliver Better Patient Care
- November 5, 2020
Jeffery Daigrepont joins Mark Reiboldt to discuss Coker’s latest book, Beyond EHR. Today, it is not uncommon for practices and hospitals to be on their second or third EHR or contemplating a transition from the traditional on-premise model to a cloud-based system. As a follow-up to Complete Guide and Toolkit to Successful EHR Adoption (©2011 HIMSS), this book builds on the best practices of the first edition, fast-forwarding to the latest innovations that are currently leveraged and adopted by providers and hospitals.

In this new book, we examine the role that artificial intelligence (AI) is now playing in and around EHR technology. We also address the advances in analytics and deep learning (also known as deep structured or hierarchical learning) and explain this topic in practical ways for even the most novice reader to comprehend and apply.
The book also covers the challenges of EHR to EHR migrations and data conversions, including the unethical practice of data blocking some vendors use as a tactic to hold data hostage. Further, we explore innovations related to interoperability, cloud computing, cybersecurity, and electronic patient/consumer engagement.
Finally, this book will deal with what to do with aging technology and databases, which is an issue rarely considered in any of the early publications on healthcare technology. What is the proper way to retire a legacy system, and what are the legal obligations of data archiving?
