Health Information Exchange: Can There Be ONE National Model?
February 20, 2017 — 03:00PM - 04:00PM EST
Orange County Convention Center
The nation's "current state" of the exchange of health information is that there are several competing approaches playing out, which are often conflicting and most definitely confusing. Industry professionals who are responsible for making decisions about "if" and "how" their organizations will interoperate often aren't equipped with the information they need to know the difference between Health Information Exchange (the noun and verb), CareQuality, Commonwell, and the eHealth Exchange. The industry could do a better job of providing a cohesive story to explain these different approaches. This session aims to help tell that story by explaining the differences in these approaches and how they work--and sometimes compete--with each other. Our talk will acknowledge the current state, explain the differences and present a cohesive approach for national interoperability.
Analyze the different approaches to interoperability presented within the session for sustainability, financial success and stakeholder involvement
Apply business models to the participants' own geographical location and stakeholder interests
Recognize the opportunities and weaknesses within the four main approaches discussed within the session
Assess how the business and clinical functions can come together to provide more robust exchange of data to improve health while serving as a mechanism to fulfill evolving payment models
Demonstrate working knowledge of the different interoperability approaches and how they could improve/modify their approach to ease burden on providers and patients
