Paul Brient at PatientKeeper is making great traction with CPOE tools for hospitals. See my earlier podcast on their outstanding rating by KLAS.

I was impressed with Michael’s story of how his own battle with cancer led to the creation of GetWellNetwork, a patient engagement company.

Cinderella showed me the “prince pose” at the Atrilogy booth. Can you tell by these photos that I’m more comfortable with the health care exec types?

I first met Kent Dicks when he was running start-up MedApps, which was acquired by Alere and  has now grown into a much broader and grander remote health monitoring offering.

Sandeep Wadhwa and I go way back to college days, when he was president of our senior class at Wesleyan. We’re getting ready for our 25th reunion and trying to decide whether it’s better to be bald or grey. Meanwhile, he’s making things happen at Noridian, a leading Medicare administrator.

CPOE that's easy to use? KLAS gives PatientKeeper top marks

October 31st, 2013 by

PatientKeeper CEO Paul Brient was a technology and business whiz kid when I met him 20 years ago at business school and then worked with him at the Boston Consulting Group. So I’m not at all surprised to see his company churning out award winning software. Still, I’m impressed that the PatientKeeper computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system has been rated so highly by KLAS Research, which rated it well above all competitors including Epic.

In this podcast interview, Paul discusses the state of hospital information technology, how CPOE fits with the EMR, and the design philosophy behind PatientKeeper’s offerings. As a bonus, Paul offera his two cents about the problem-plagued launch of the federal health information exchange and the prospects for getting it fixed in time.
