STEPS to Value Podcast

Episode #3: Know Your STEPS: Treatment/Clinical Value


In this episode, we examine the "T STEP" of the HIMSS HIT Value STEPS framework, Treatment and Clinical. This category is well-represented in Value Suite data collection, and covers topics such as efficiencies, quality of care, and safety issues. We talk with Fred Rachman, CEO of the Alliance of Chicago Community Health Services, and Vice Chair of the HIMSS Board of Directors, about how IT is used to support treatment and clinical benefits. We talk with Tom Leary, Vice President, Government Relations at HIMSS about the 10th annual National Health IT Week. Jonathan French joins us again to highlight Davies award winners who have gained value through clinically-focused HIT projects. Finally, Margaret Schulte joins us with some treatment/clinically-focused value stories of the week.
