Michigan HIE Group Creates Shared Environment For Modeling Interoperability

Healthcare IT Today

If you’re running an HIE, you’re always hoping to see your participants step up their interoperability game. The thing is, few HIEs go the extra mile to make it happen, in many cases because they just don’t have the resources to tackle the problem. Given this fact, I was interested to see the recent announcement […].

Of course, it seems crazy that the health IT incentives and Meaningful Use didn’t mandate interoperability; and the last few years of health IT development might have gone differently if interoperability were required before the 21st Century Cures Act mandated it and made data blocking illegal, but we are now looking forward, not backward.

ACOs with Multiple EHRs Struggle with IT Health Care Coordination

BHM Healthcare Solutions

OIG conducted interviews with staff and providers at the six ACOs about how they use health IT and the challenges that remain. Health information exchanges with “robust” data were helpful in filling in the gaps when patients sought care outside the ACO. HIEs with incomplete data were not helpful and difficult to get providers to adopt. The post ACOs with Multiple EHRs Struggle with IT Health Care Coordination appeared first on BHM Healthcare Solutions.

A grade-school English teacher of mine would write a little guide on the chalkboard at the beginning of our expository writing lessons: Say what you’re going to say; Say It; Say what you said.

How far away is Healthcare from a platform-dominated Digital business model?

Lloyd Price

Over the past few years, several healthcare focused cloud-based digital platforms – or health clouds - have been announced by big tech firms such as Salesforce, Microsoft, and Google. For every VC-fueled Uber and Airbnb that goes for world-domination through first mover advantage and network effects, there are several that do not make it past their fifth anniversary. For now, the custodianship of the data rests with health systems and their electronic health record (EHR) vendors.
