Did you happen to catch my InformationWeek Healthcare story about how UPMC believes it has the roadmap in place to achieve true accountable care? Well, here's the rest of the story.
Last week, Nuance Communications invited me to Pittsburgh for a tour of the UPMC Center for Connected Medicine, an impressive, high-tech showcase on the 60th floor of the U.S. Steel Tower. There, I interviewed, among others, Rasu Shrestha, M.D., UPMC's vice president for medical information technology, medical director of interoperability & imaging informatics and division chief of radiology informatics.
