Grappling with meaningful use and ICD-10 at the same time is no easy task. But Sharp Healthcare, a San Diego-based integrated delivery system with seven hospitals, is making headway, according to CIO Bill Spooner.

Sharp is running an inpatient EHR, from Cerner, at all seven hospitals, while its physician group uses Allscripts. About 80 percent of orders are processed electronically, Spooner noted. He maintains a meaningful use dashboard on an Excel spreadsheet that details the organization’s progress. Some of the data, such as order utilization, is generated via the EHRs, while other data must be manually calculated.
