In an article today on Healthcare IT News, by editor Mike Millard, he explains the term EXTREME as applied to interoperability with healthcare technology. Originally introduced by researchers Sittig and Wright, EXTREME stands for EXtract, TRansmit, Exchange, Move, and Embed.
This articles shows clinicians, researchers, administrators, software developers and patients that implementing EXTREME into EHR management is the key to ensuring information is secure and available to those who need it. Through 5 Electronic Health Record (EHR) use cases one can see how necessary EXTREME is to transforming today's EHR-enabled health care delivery system.
Sittig and Wright explain how health care organizations should require these EXTREME capabilities in their EHRs. They continue to say that besides having all EHRs meet these requirements, "we must begin addressing the myriad of socio-legal barriers to widespread health information exchange that is required to transform the modern EHR-enabled health care delivery system."
