Technology Enhancement

There are many options for enhancing the technology. These include:

  • Adding content, such as additional results pathology results, problem lists, open notes, etc.

  • Adding advanced functions and features (e.g., links to reference sites) beyond the scope of the initial launch if the metrics indicate that the technology is needed.

  • Customizing the technology for subpopulations of patients. (This may be helpful for accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes, which focus on high risk and high cost patients.)

  • Integration of patient-generated health data (PGHD) from home monitoring (blood pressure, weight, etc.), or devices, such as blood glucose monitors or health status questionnaires.
