Christine Bessler, chief information officer and vice president of information technology at ProHealth Care, distinguished between traditional mergers and partnerships. Systems can save money and achieve effectiveness through partnering, such as through AboutHealth, she said.
"The challenge is consolidation of EMRs is what we traditionally thought was necessary to be clinically integrated, but I think there's a different way to approach this," Bessler said. "Not to say that isn't part of the equation, but it gets back to what are you hoping to achieve and what's the value at the level of clinical integration, at the level of providing clinical care and what's the value of at the backend."
There might be an opportunity to leverage technology in new ways "beyond the traditional let's just merge all of our technology together," she noted.

"When we saw the questions the CAT asks and the way it tracks and categorizes employee responses, we knew it would serve us much more effectively than other survey and measurement tools we had seen," said Christine Bessler, Chief Information Officer and Vice President of Information Technology at ProHealth Care.
An additional advantage of working with Empathia, noted Bessler and Ostrenga, is that the company didn't merely provide a survey and an assessment tool.
The goal was to gather solid baseline data in the most efficient way possible, said Bessler, and Empathia accomplished that perfectly.
"Using an external partner and a unique tool like the CAT also sent a strong message to the team that we were taking this matter very seriously-and that we were committed to making measureable improvements," Bessler added.
"The training actually forced people to play out various scenarios that demanded improved interaction and communication skills," Bessler said.
As for the IT department's future, Bessler said that ProHealth Care plans to continue communicating regularly with the team regarding cultural issues.
