According to Dr. James Crawford, senior vice president for laboratory services and chair of the department of pathology and laboratory medicine at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, an organization must prioritize IT implementation into its medical home, as too much at once can overwhelm the IT team. And in Medical Network One CEO Ewa Matuszewski’s opinion, the patient-based registry is just the tool needed to take that first step in wiring your medical home.

In a HIN webinar entitled, “Wiring the Medical Home: Healthcare IT to Power a Patient-Centered Model,” these panelists presented case studies on the use of health IT in the medical home and its impact on care access, quality and cost.
