Looking at quantitative and qualitative data research, I have found in what ways make this company good for the clinic. In my quantitation studies we want to look at the statistics, tests, and measured data (Woods, 06:06). Sometimes this includes a comparison but not always. Quantitative data is data collection from personal experience and direct observation (Woods, 06:23). This can include graphs, numbers, and research designs (Nelson, p. 70). Qualitative data shows on patient experience and interaction with the company. This can be structured or semi-structured interviews (Nelson, p. 69). For Impriviata qualitative data shows on their website there are multiple success stories from hospitals and facilities all over that use this company. All the reviews aren’t just from medical staff. There are Sherriff’s Offices, banks, and credit unions. Quantitative data show that there are over 6 million current users across 39 countries. There are 1,700 healthcare customers and 30 patents issued to date. I like that this company uses the idea on one sign on for providers and they promote less time spent signing onto computers. Technology is allowing for quicker healthcare and less time spent with technology so the medical staff can spend more time with their patients rather than the computer. References Imprivata. (2019).

With an EHR, a patient's information is always current and coordinated, helping to eliminate medical errors and duplicative paperwork. Dr. Farzad Mostashari (ONC), Dr. Donald Berwick and other health care professionals discuss how EHR technology may help reduce the cost of health care and improve health outcomes -- leading to a healthier future for all Americans. When the folks at hospital X don’t know what happened at hospital Y, they’re not giving him really good care” -Dr. Sachin Jain You get subjected to multiple x-rays that you don’t need multiple of. There are exams that you needed, tests that you needed, things you needed to do, that actually didn’t happen because people didn’t realize that hadn't been done. -Todd Park If I could snap my finger and on thing transform the quality of care in the country, it would be that everyone would have an electronic health record that would be universally accessible. -Joseph McConnon Electronic Health Records (EHR) have revolutionized the tracking and delivery of healthcare for all. However, these records have been historically closed to patients and there have even been debates on who owns the information. Given the current trend in
