EHRs Driving Force for Better Patient Care

Informaticians are driven to find the answers. For Randa Perkins, MD, CMIO, Moffitt Cancer Center, her computer programming background led her to discover new processes for ensuring electronic health records (EHRs) provide clinicians with the right information to drive better outcomes.

Randa examines how physicians can make the most out of the data from EHRs, such as developing personalized prediction tools for people with chronic kidney disease facing readmission. 

Why informatics? So, we can get closer to personalized medicine being the standard of care.
