Community Vision and Strategy Work Group

The purpose of the Community Vision and Strategy Work Group is to capture the community’s future strategy and provide a clear recommendation for the future of healthcare IT (both inside and outside VA).  The work group was not initiated by VA, and was not tasked by OSEHRA's VA contract.  The work group is being launched to provide an opportunity for all open source community members to share their vision of what the ecosystem should look like going forward, and to create a cohesive message that brings clarity and technical accuracy to ongoing discussions. 
 
OSEHRA, and sponsoring member DSS, invite you to join this effort and share your vision and suggestions.  We envision that this work group will meet weekly for 4-6 weeks (beginning 01/12/2017) and create a short briefing on the community vision that will be available for public use.

Hi -

I am not sure if this is the correct group to ask this question... Apologies, if not.

I was reading about the latest version (5.0) of popHealth that was released in March 2017 - https://github.com/OSEHRA/popHealth/wiki/Installation-v5.0, and my questions are with respect to this version.

Before I write my questions below, I would like to provide you a brief overview of what I am trying to achieve through popHealth 5.0.

EHRs: It’s time to start from scratch
"A lot has been written about how awful electronic health record (EHR) systems are. They are overwrought, over engineered, dreadfully dull baroque systems with awkward user interfaces that look like they were designed in the early 1990s. They make it too easy to cut and paste data to meet billing level requirements, documenting patient care that never happened and creating multipage mega-notes, full of words signifying exactly nothing."

Doctors spend about half of their EHR time during patient encounters, according to new findings published in Health Affairs. The other half is consumed by desktop medicine tasks for which they do not get reimbursed.

“Physicians logged an average of 3.08 hours on office visits and 3.17 hours on desktop medicine each day,” the authors wrote. “Over time, log records from physicians showed a decline in the time allocated to face-to-face visits, accompanied by an increase in time allocated to desktop medicine.”
