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 […].

A Wide Range Of Problems Still Holding Back Health Data Interoperability

Healthcare IT Today

A new health data interoperability survey by Healthcare IT Today with 82 responses suggests that when it comes to interoperability, healthcare organizations are struggling with many of the same challenges they faced five or even 10 years ago. Without a doubt, respondents are still interested in fostering health data sharing. Their objectives for doing so […].

Disaster use of HIE is a PurposeOfUse

Healthcare Exchange Standards

In the USA there is a project called Patient Unified Lookup System for Emergencies (PULSE). It is an exemplar of functionality that can quickly enable healthcare treatment use-cases that are within the purpose of a Health Information Exchange, yet are also dynamically deployed as necessary. The video gives a good background that is important. I will let the video describe it.

HIE future bright -- FHIR API to Document Sharing

Healthcare Exchange Standards

I think the most useful value-add that an HIE can add is an API that is based on FHIR. This is true of an XDS based HIE, Regional Exchange (XCA), Vendor based EHR, nationwide Exchange, and Direct HISP. At an HIE level: Initially I would focus on enabling Apps to query for and read the data available in the HIE. The HIE would implement the PDQm Supplier actor. Conclusion First step is to add a Document based Query/Retrieve interface to the HIE.

Who will regulate mHealth? Patient Engagement at Crossroads; New Alliance Takes On Interoperability

The announcement of CommonWell Health Alliance was likely the biggest story to come out of HIMSS (Allscripts acquiring longtime HIE partner dbMotion may have been a close second). The group’s stated purpose is to enable interoperability across the five founding members’ EHRs. The greatest challenge facing CommonWell, however, may be the market itself as adoption of HIE tech within the ambulatory sector remains a challenge.

Not only has this lessened my own meeting burden (last I counted, this year I only have 24 meetings in 3 days vs last year’s 35), it also gives us a great opportunity to interact with a far broader range of stakeholders in the HIT market with analysts focused on analytics, patient engagement, HIE, EHR and the biggest buzzword from last year, population health management (PHM).

The HIE also contains systems, illustrated in green, that submit and consume documents.

Blockchain in Healthcare: A Vehicle Towards Digital Health 2.0?

The Digital Health Corner

According to an excellent whitepaper describing a case study of Medrec , a platform utilizing blockchain technology, health information interoperability is facilitated with the use of blockchain. However, interestingly, interoperability of blockchain itself remains as much a Holy Grail as interoperability of digital healthcare data. Blockchain can also ensure the accuracy of the data exchanged among entities, something a HIE (health information exchange) cannot do.
