How 3 Healthcare System Leaders Are Tackling Data Interoperability Challenges
To achieve meaningful interoperability, now and in the future, healthcare organizations across the country are having to rethink the way they approach clinical data exchange.
Produced in partnership with HIMSS Media, this whitepaper features the perspectives of three healthcare executives:
Over the past decade, the healthcare industry has struggled with achieving meaningful interoperability. As highlighted in a 2017 Health Affairs study, the healthcare industry has been plagued by numerous obstacles related to data exchange, a situation slowing healthcare organizations’ abilities to trade key clinical information between different trading partners, including other providers and health information exchanges (HIEs).
The health system leaders we interviewed discussed how they are rising to the challenges of:
Meeting provider expectations about what kind of data they want and need to support the continuity of care – while at the same time reducing costs
Keeping up with evolving health data standards, such as FHIR(R), and the regulatory changes such as the CMS and ONC rules
Connecting with various HIEs, which each have different ideas about how data exchange should work
Using data interoperability to help reduce hospital re-admissions
Exchanging data securely with both internal and external trading partners
