How Deploying a State-Wide Provider Directory Has Improved Efficiency for Healthcare Stakeholders

Join InterSystems for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented By
Elaine Fontaine
Director, Data Quality and Analytics – Provider Directory Lunch and Learn

The move to value-based care cannot succeed without accurate provider data for determining who did what, where, when, and for whom. But maintaining accurate data is especially challenging today where providers may deliver care at multiple locations, and have multiple, complex relationships with insurers and care delivery organizations. And these relationships change frequently, with about 25% of provider data changing every year.

In this session the Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI) will describe how it manages this complex ecosystem, and the creation of an advanced statewide Provider Directory service. Healthcare delivery organizations, payers, the state health department, consumers, and others use this service to increase efficiency and solve the challenges of rapidly changing provider data.

Elaine Fontaine is a senior healthcare management professional with over 25 years of analytics, information technology and program management experience in research, provider and payer settings, serving as a Research Data Manager, Sr. Director of Medical Management Operations and Chief Information Officer for a Medicaid health plan.  She is a customer focused, creative problem solver with capacity to bridge business strategy, operations, technology and data analysis to help organizations drive improvement and achieve the quadruple aim.  During her career she has repeatedly built and directed high-performing teams of innovative, results-oriented professionals.  Ms. Fontaine has authored seven published research articles and white papers.
