TownHall: Developing Sustainable Healthcare with Informatics Solutions with Priya Ramaswamy, MD
August 24: Today on TownHall we are looking back at a TownHall episode from May of last year. In this episode, Jake Lancaster, Chief Medical Information Officer at Baptist Memorial Health Care interviewed Priya Ramaswamy, MD, Clinical Informatics Fellow/Anesthesiologist at UCSF. What is sustainable healthcare informatics? Not just in the US but across the globe, healthcare organizations are taking a stance to make a healthier ecosystem for people. Anesthetic gasses have damaging effects on the environment that contribute to global warming. The government is going to start requiring all organizations, including hospitals and healthcare systems to report on their admissions. What technology did UCSF develop within their Epic EHR to help with this? What are the elements needed to develop a clinical decision support alert system to remind anesthesia providers to turn down their fresh gas?
