Onc 2015...where does this stand?


(Barrie C Fitz-Gerald, Ph.D.) #1

Looking for current certification status…is there any work being done in this direction by anyone?

I assume you already took a look at this:

and

Did you have any specific questions or areas of concern? The clinical decision rule engine is nice but has a few annoying bugs that prevent immunization reminders from clearing without rule editing. I would say that that the MU support of this system is a little rough around the edges (for example, MU reports will list patients who meet or do not meet criteria but don’t report the variable in question). For electronic prescribing, I use MDTOOLBOX to maintain the patient medication lists, e-prescribing, etc. I know there are e-prescribing integrations possible, but I have not figured out how to get an affordable option to work. Lab integration with Quest is still something I am trying to figure out. Electronic ordering of imaging for me is still a relatively manual process (“printing” an order to a pdf and faxing it).
Best regards,
