Dr. John Mattson: “The Paradigm of the Future Hastens the Demise of Dictation”

There’s a new opinion piece by Dr. John Mattson in Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review. Entitled “3 Reasons Justifying Synoptic Data in Surgical Operative Reports,” the piece examines the inherent problems with dictation and the multiple ways that synoptic reporting improves on this increasingly antiquated system.

What We Talk About When We Talk About Structured Data (part 1)

Still trying to find that needle...

Sometimes it feels like my job wholly consists of talking about structured data. I give definitions and abstract examples – but it’s not easy to help people understand the real benefits of it. And so, as I try to find the best way to get my point across, I often think of real world examples of how structured data is useful in our daily lives and why it tends to be preferable to unstructured, narrative text.

With that in mind – let’s go out to the ball park!

THAT's the Chicago way!

Baseball. America’s Past Time. The Sweet Science. City of Lights. The Ghost and the darkness.

Okay, I’m not the biggest baseball fan. I will watch playoffs and world series. But I do know that a lot of baseball is about numbers: strike outs, home runs, bases stolen, RBIs, wins, losses, saves, ERAs, pitches thrown. Each of these play a crucial factor in determining how well your team is doing or how a player is perceived by his fans. And, following theories like those laid out in Moneyball, these metrics can even determine who will be signed on to your favorite team.

So what does this have to do with structured data? Glad you asked!

Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago – Becker ASC Conference 2010

Are you in Chicago?

Do you work at an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) or are you interested in learning how OpNote will work for your Orthopedic, Spine and/or Pain Management practice?

Come and visit mTuitive at the 8th Annual Orthopedic, Spine and Pain Management Driven ASC Conference which is being held Today, June 10, through Saturday, June 12th, at The Westin (on Michigan Ave).

Christopher and Colin will be on hand to talk to anyone interested in learning more about OpNote and they are ready to answer any questions, including those pertaining to pricing, interoperability and implementation. Also present at the conference will be Dr. John Mattson, our orthopedic surgical consultant who will show everyone how he uses OpNote in his orthopedic procedures and how easy it is to create defaults – all on his own iPad!

Becker ASC Review is a great source of information about ASCs – including news, articles, editorials and developing products. Definitely recommend heading over to that site if you’re interested in finding out more about the growing community of ambulatory surgery centers.

Also, we’ll be tweeting about the conference throughout the next three days, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, or simply look for the conference tag #ORTHOASC2010.

Think of the iPossibilities…

The Future...is Now

After only a few weeks of toiling, we have brought the power of mTuitive OpNote to the ease and portability of the iPad. OpNote is now iPad and iPhone compatible and while some of our users have those devices, it’s really just a means for us to learn more about this technology that is growing in popularity and users. As more IT companies are announcing their plans for other tablets (or “slates” as they’re sometimes called), it’s great to be able to see how easily we’re able to bring over our product onto these devices.

Obviously, a lot of that has to do with the fact that OpNote is web-based – but more mobile operating systems (OS) are debuting every month, each with their own nuances and idiosyncrasies. As we develop OpNote on iPad, though, we can begin to see the future of personal computers and begin to envision how medical reporting will work for our incredibly busy and increasingly mobile physicians.

So how does OpNote look and work on the iPad? To paraphrase the reaction to another great technological advancement:

“I love OpNote on the iPad. It’s SO bad.”

Standardization – It’s Not Just for Reporting Anymore!

Via Digistan

While developing mTuitive OpNote, we’ve used the knowledge and experience of many physicians to help shape the form of our postoperative report. As we’ve noted elsewhere, there is no standard form for postoperative reports. There are suggestions and basic requirements put forth by Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) and each specialty’s own association (like American Society of Breast Surgeons, etc.) usually has its own idea of what’s important to capture in the reports for procedures that fall under its purview. But while debate about and progress in creating standardization for postoperative reports, there are other aspects of Health IT generating their own sets of standards.
