Electronic Health Records (EHRs) have become the primary source of patient data in the healthcare system, but they were not designed to facilitate efficient communication between healthcare professionals. Although EHRs are instrumental in maintaining patient records and billing purposes, they have limited functionality. Using EHRs for clinical communication can lead to disruptions, slow workflows, and fragmented communication among healthcare team members, ultimately endangering patient care. 

Today’s healthcare delivery is shaped by legacy IT systems, information-blocking practices, and other data integration issues that have created siloed workflows that can impede care delivery. By limiting access to critical patient data and information, these disjointed systems can cause significant gaps in care that lead to inconsistencies in the quality of care provided. To address this problem, healthcare organizations must integrate their EHR systems with a clinical communication and collaboration platform to ensure seamless communication between providers and departments to optimize care delivery and outcomes. 

One integrated clinical communication platform can provide immense value to healthcare organizations. By connecting people, processes, and systems, a well-designed platform can streamline workflows and communication, leading to more efficient and effective healthcare delivery. Despite the potential challenges for larger organizations, investing in the right technology can enable healthcare providers to integrate care processes and ensure secure data access for all stakeholders, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
