Healthcare Industry Buzzwords 1. EHR/ EMR/ HIT Interoperability- a. EHR-Electronic Health Records- the entire, long-term computerized electronic record of a patient’s care collected from any and all provider settings which connects multiple providers (ie. Hospitals and clinicians, laboratories as well as pharmacy/prescription histories). b. EMR-Electronic Medical Records is the electronic version of patient’s history and medical records which were initially a paper chart and record. c. HIT- Health Information Technology- Is used to connect physician and patient’s data through communication online. 2. Creative Destruction- This is relating to our current healthcare system, and it basically means that in order to develop a new healthcare system, we must break down the old one and rebuild from scratch. What the next few years bring will be considered a “creative destruction”- in which our current fragmented, fee-for-service health delivery system will be converted into a more effective and efficient health care system.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
