Former Medical Present Value CEO Tom Stampiglia joins RCM/BI provider Origin Healthcare Solutions as CEO. He was also previously president and COO of WebMD’s practice services division.

Physicians will ignore medication alerts if: (a) their EMR generates too many of them; (b) the alerts to not apply to a particular patient situation (e.g., the patient has already been taking the medication without problems); or (c) the alert provides too much information. That’s the conclusion of a VA/Regenstrief Institute study of 30 prescribers in 13 clinics. The authors recommend that systems provide only the details users need to make decisions.

American Medical News profiles a couple of physicians who have converted a portion of their homes into a medical office. There’s nothing IT related to this story, but since I work out of my house, I appreciate the benefits of having a 20-yard commute between my bedroom and work space. The downside, which the doctors didn’t mention, is that it’s sometimes hard to step away from the office.

    RE: VA/Regenstrief Institute study – I’ve seen it many times during implementations:

    Vendor: How do you want to configure the various alerts?
    Customer: Turn on everything. We want everything.
    Vendor: Everything?
    Cusomter: Everything.

    Time passes…

    Customer: The physicians are screaming that there are too many alerts and want them ALL turned off.
    Vendor: All of them?
    Customer: All of them!
