The Impact of EHR Certification

In the comments of my post on EMR and EHR titled EHR Vendors Using EHR Certification Excuse, Jeff offered a frank comment about the realities EHR vendors face in this current climate:

I went through EHR certification for a EHR product – for the sake of this discussion it can remain nameless as you can insert any EHR name and it will share the same issues. The process was cumbersome and I agree is not worthwhile for our clients. However at least 90% of our clients were requesting it and all of our sales pipelines say they required it. The interaction you describe I have had. I don’t think it’s the fault of us as a vendor as much as the short sightedness of the committee that created the certification rules. We had to implement fields/screens/buttons that served no purpose in the type of practice we supplied our software to. That did not matter to the certification proctor, we had to show it or we failed and lost a lot of money. Getting certified threw off our development cycle at least 6 months. During that time we had to push off many good customer requested enhancements. In hindsight would our customers prefer we did not get certified – probably, but could our company take a chance at not being able to renew contracts or get new sales. No way, not for a government mandated push.

This reminds me of a video I recently saw that asked the question, “What do we want EHR certification to do?” The problem here is that I think everyone has a different answer to that question. Until we define what EHR certification should really accomplish, it’s hard to make criteria that are beneficial and easy to understand. In the rush to meet the regulatory requirements I think we missed creating the bigger vision of why we’re doing EHR certification at all. That’s why we’re where we’re at today.

$4.2 Million New York Digital Health Accelerator Announces Inaugural Class

Today at the Digital Health Conference, NYeC announced their inaugural class of companies for the New York Digital Health Accelerator. This is a big announcement just 5 months after they announced the creation of the Digital Health Accelerator.

As I said when I first wrote about this health IT accelerator, there are a number of health IT accelerators and incubators out there, but I think that the Digital Health Accelerator differentiates itself in a couple important ways. First, they offer $300k of investment in the company. Second, they have real tangible relationships with hospital systems. The second is likely the more important. There’s little of more value to a health IT startup company than actual customers giving you feedback on what you’re creating.

Here’s the full press release announcing the inaugural class including a list of companies:

NYeC, Partnership for New York City Fund and the DOH have Joined Forces to Create $4.2M Digital Health Accelerator Program, the Largest Program of its Kind, to Encourage Health IT Innovation and Create Jobs

New York, NY – Today the New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) and the Partnership for New York City Fund (Partnership Fund) revealed the inaugural class of the New York Digital Health Accelerator (NYDHA), a program that will make New York a hub for the emerging digital health technology industry. The partnership is the largest-funded health IT accelerator program in the United States, and the first to provide access to senior-level healthcare providers who are committed to the success of the eight growth-stage companies selected.

With its initial investment of $4.2 million, the NYDHA program will create approximately 1,500 jobs over five years. In addition, it is expected that the companies will attract upwards of $150 million to $200 million in investment from the venture capital community post-program.

The program has selected 8 early- and growth-stage companies that are developing cutting-edge technology products in care coordination, patient engagement, analytics and message alerts for healthcare providers. The program received 250 applications from companies located in 27 states and 10 countries.  Each chosen company is awarded up to $300,000 along with invaluable mentoring from senior-level executives at leading hospitals and other providers in New York for nine months. Each company has committed to opening an office in New York State.

“The Accelerator provides much-needed, valuable tools for providers in support of New York State’s Medicaid Redesign initiative,” New York State Health Commissioner Nirav R. Shah, M.D., M.P.H. said.  “The initiative, which promotes a shift from the costly fee-for-service model to a more effective and efficient managed care approach, is resulting in better care – at lower cost – for patients across the continuum of care.  The Accelerator is an essential first step to stimulate the market and nurture innovation within the entrepreneurial community.”

Tech companies accepted into the program are receiving direct mentorship and feedback from senior-level executives with the participating providers. Their coaching, testing, and feedback will help these companies create the most efficient tools that the medical community will want to use to streamline the sharing of electronic medical records and improve coordination of care.

In addition, companies have direct access to the technology platform that is connecting electronic health records across New York State, the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY).

“We are creating the next generation of healthcare applications that will transform the healthcare delivery system,” said NYeC Executive Director David Whitlinger. “These companies are the first software development vendors to have direct access to the SHIN-NY, a secure platform that embodies all of the federal and state policies for usage of patient data by the community.”

“One of the biggest challenges for early stage health care companies is getting access to large customers” explains Maria Gotsch, President and CEO, Partnership for New York City Fund.  “This program not only provides that access but allows the eight companies to benefit from high level feedback, which will accelerate their growth and create good jobs in the important health IT sector in New York.”

The investment capital was provided by a syndicate of investors, including Aetna, Janssen Healthcare Innovation, Milestone Venture Partners, New Leaf Venture Partners, Partnership for New York City Fund, Quaker Partners, Safeguard Scientifics, and UnitedHealth Group. The Empire State Development Corporation, Health Research Inc., and NYeC have provided additional funds to operate the NYDHA.

The 8 selected companies include:

Healthbox Expands to European Startups

Healthbox is known for helping new business startups by providing them with seed capital. The company has recently announced it would be expanding its services to London. In July, Healthbox began the search for health tech startups that will bring change to health care in Europe.

They hosted the first of many events across Europe to bring in potential startups, and the final selection was set to take place in September. The startups that were selected are set to receive £75,000 of seed capital, access to Healthbox’s mentors, wider industry network,  and access to Healthbox’s London offices.

Commenting on the launch of Healthbox’s accelerator in London, Nina Nashif, Founder of Healthbox, described why London was chosen to be the hub in Europe, and her feelings about the program:

London was the obvious place to come be part of the UK’s world-renowned academic institutions, science and tech traditions as well as being a gateway to the rest of Europe. It is the natural seedbed for new, passionate entreprenerus looking to grow their ideas. We are looking forward with some amazing people. Healthcare has traditionally been a challenging sector for innovation because by its very nature it has been risk averse. Healthbox has developed a new ecosystem and culture for stimulating change by bringing together early-stage companies with strategic organisations, individuals and investors who mutually benefit from working together on new ideas that transform health. We believe in the power of having a global network for exchange of ideas and learning.

There are several firms that are supporting the program, which include Bupa and Secro and Zone Digital, and there will be mentors from companies such as Care UK, Novo Nordisk, Dell, Deloitte, and DocCom.

New Healthcare Crowdfunding Site: Health Tech Hatch

On the heels of my post about Medstartr and Indiegogo healthcare crowd funding, I was interested to receive the information that a new crowdfunding site called Health Tech Hatch is launching today.

Here’s a short quote about what Health Tech Hatch is trying to do:

“What differentiates Health Tech Hatch from other crowdfunding sites is our sole focus on health care projects, which we combine with expert feedback and mentorship,” says Patricia Salber, CEO of Health Tech Hatch. “We’ve made it our mission to help young health and health tech companies build a viable nest for the brilliant ideas they are ready to hatch.”

Depending on the nature of their innovative ideas, entrepreneurs may opt to have projects evaluated by panels of medical experts, patients, wellness consumers and providers, such as physical therapists, fitness trainers and nutritionists convened by Health Tech Hatch. The Senior Healthcare executives on the Health Tech Hatch team also provide feedback to the entrepreneur and offer advice and services to help grow a business.

It is a huge challenge to build a community large enough to support crowdfunding, but I’m glad to have another entrant that’s working to solve the many healthcare problems we have.

Allscripts to Discontinue MyWay EHR

The rumblings are starting to get more and more solid about Allscripts plans to discontinue MyWay. It seems they’ve started by informing their VARs and that’s where the word has gotten out most. Allscripts hasn’t quite said that they’ll be sunsetting MyWay, but the writing is on the wall.

One person I talked to about this said that the fact that Allscripts discontinuing MyWay wasn’t much of a surprise considering what a terrible product it’s been. The term he used most often to describe the product was “buggy.” This wasn’t surprising to me since one of my most discussed posts was one on Evaluating Allscripts EMR which I wrote on my EMR & EHR website.

It seems that Allscripts plan is to discontinue MyWay and try and move those users to Allscripts Professional. The migration of the data seems like it will be free, but it doesn’t seem that Allscripts has yet indicated whether they’ll tack on an extra fee for the more expensive Allscripts Pro product.

I was told that Allscripts did say that they’d be incorporating the best features of MyWay into Allscripts Professional. The person I talked to about this laughed a bit since there were very few features in MyWay that users loved. He assumed that it HAD to be referencing the Full Note composer in MyWay which he said providers seemed to like for documenting the clinical side of things.

I’ve also heard a rumor that Allscripts might be looking for a way to do the Allscripts professional training through some sort of online means. Considering the complexity of Allscripts pro and the configuration and training required to make it functional and workable, this seems like a failed strategy to me. We’ll see how this plays out since I’m sure Allscripts is still defining this strategy.

Of course, the VARs that are supporting all the MyWay implementations will be scrambling with their own plan. I expect many of them won’t be happy with the idea of switching from MyWay to Allscripts professional and will consider other EHR. The obvious option is Aprima since they created the original MyWay and then forked the project to create their current Aprima EHR offering.

I’m told that Aprima has totally redone the PM side of their Aprima EHR which is a good thing since many weren’t satisfied with the PM in MyWay. It certainly makes a lot of sense for Allscripts MyWay VARs to consider Aprima since it will provide a similar user experience for their users and I have little doubt that Aprima will be able to port the data out of MyWay and into Aprima. My only question is if that’s the right move. Should you move to Aprima because it’s an easy transition or should a Var instead search to find the best EHR out there (which could be Aprima in the end anyway, I’ll leave that judgement to others)?

No doubt many of the other EHR vendors out there are going to look at this as a great opportunity for them as well. I’d be interested to learn more about Allscripts MyWay technology structure and how well the data can be ported to another EHR.

It must be an interesting time at Allscripts with this happening along with talks of Allscripts considering a sell out to a Private Equity Buyer.

UPDATE: Aprima sent out the following offering for Allscripts MyWay users.

PLEASE NOTE: In some earlier communications, Aprima had used the word ‘ABANDON’ to describe Allscript’s approach to its MyWay customers. Instead of using the language ‘ABANDON,’ what we should have said is that it is no longer developing or updating the MyWay product, including compliance for government incentives and requirements such as Meaningful Use and ICD-10. We apologize for any confusion.

APRIMA OFFERS LIFELINE TO ABANDONED MYWAY CUSTOMERS

According to Allscripts, the MyWay product will not be enhanced to meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use and customers are being told they will need to convert to an alternative Allscripts product starting in January 2013. There is an announcement posted at this link: http://blog.allscripts.com/2012/10/05/evolving-industry-evolving-ehrs/.

However, that is not the only option MyWay customers have. You may not be aware that MyWay is based on Aprima’s PRM 2008 version. Since that time, Aprima has made almost 1,000 enhancements to the product!

With the Allscripts announcement to discontinue development efforts on MyWay, and force a conversion to another product, the time and effort required of a practice will be enormous. The lost productivity of converting could negatively impact the practice for many months if not a year.

Providers are not “stuck;” they have the opportunity to UPGRADE to Aprima.

Aprima will not charge a license fee to any MyWay customers who sign a maintenance and support agreement. You may continue to work with your existing MyWay reseller (requires the reseller to become an Aprima Reseller), and your data will migrate as part of the UPGRADE. Training is limited to only learning the new features so there is virtually no downtime.

Aprima has successfully UPGRADED MyWay customers with no data loss – there is no conversion required. (Small UPGRADE labor fee required per database.)

Please contact Aprima at mywayrescue@aprima.com or your current reseller for more information.

I also got this message from Allscripts about their decision to end MyWay EHR:

It’s no secret that the healthcare IT market is changing rapidly. To enable our clients to succeed, we must change as well. That’s why, to better meet the needs of small and mid-sized practices, we are providing a free upgrade from Allscripts MyWay to a new converged platform that leverages the Professional Suite.

This upgrade better equips our clients to meet increasing regulatory pressures and shifting payment models to value-based care. And, by focusing our investment on a single EHR for this market, we can deliver innovations faster. Innovations like Allscripts Wand™, our native iPad solution, which is getting rave reviews from clients. Over time, we will deliver a converged clinical platform that delivers the best of both solutions.

We based this decision on client input on prioritization of new features and functionality. The upgrade will immediately deliver key benefits of our converged platform:
• Powerful Practice Management
• Robust Analytics
• Community Connectivity, and
• Anytime, Anywhere Mobile Access.
We’re working closely with our clients to deliver a simple upgrade process that included advanced toolkits, pre-built templates, and customized training. We’re confident this move will enable our clients to succeed in the ever-changing healthcare industry.

Pingmd and Rxante Receive Fundings to Continue Product Development

FUNDINGS:

Pingmd is an app that connects parents with their child’s pediatrician. The startup behind its creation, Dauphin Health, has raised $1.33 million. The company is based in New York, and was created by Drs. Gopal and Manju Chopra. The app is free, and parents can keep track of vaccinations and allergies, as well as communicate (securely) with their child’s pediatrican.

Pingmd currently has seven employees and thousands of patients have used it so far. There are plans to expand throughout other parts of North America and into Europe. According to Dr. Gopal Chopra the app is “gear towards getting the physician the right information to make a decision.

Directors that were listed on the SEC document included Matthew Greenfield, Ernest Pomerantz, and Rudy Mazzocchi.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember to take prescribed medicine. RxAnte aims to change that. The company develops technology to help remind patients to take medications. And a few weeks ago, RxAnte received a $4.6 million investment. The investment came from Aberdare Ventures and West Health Investment.

According to BizJournals.com, RxAnte’s “technology can predict which patients are likely to stray from their scheduled drug-taking schedules, and what interventions are likely to be most effective.” This funding will help the company continue creating new technology and introducing them to the market
