Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have developed an algorithm capable of extracting data from patient electronic health records (EHRs) to show the difference in care provided by physicians and nurses. Findings were published online Feb. 9 in the International Journal of Medical Informatics.

On the heels last week’s announcement of Uber’s healthcare-focused initiative, Lyft has agreed to partner with Allscripts to offer ride-sharing services to patients through physicians and hospitals.

At HIMSS 2018, Nuance Communications and Epic announced a partnership that will integrate Nuance's new artificial intelligence (AI)-powered virtual assistant platform into Epic’s electronic health record (EHR).

Researchers established a system of alerts based on electronic medical records to identify patients who qualify for cardiac rehabilitation at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. In just nine months, the program boosted referral rates from 12 percent to 75 percent.

Implementing an electronic health record (EHR) system does not affect a hospital’s bond rating, according to a study published in the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association.
