CHIME concerned about health data interoperability for chronic care

February 2, 2016

From EMR Industry:

“The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME), in a letter sent last week to leadership of the Senate Finance Committee’s Chronic Care Working Group, emphasized four areas of focus in determining policies to improve healthcare for chronically ill patients. Facilitating health IT interoperability across the care continuum was among CHIME’s core recommendations.”

In its letter, CHIME emphasized the requirement for “data fluidity” for treating treating chronically ill patients.

We totally agree that interoperability is needed at the foundation of all health IT activities in a connected care environment. Data fluidity, data liquidity and interoperability all mean the same to us! 

However, rather than wait on an act of Congress, we will continue to help our customers take control of their health data, create interoperability, and build the most-advanced healthcare IT systems in the country.
