Description

The Patient-Centered Data Home (PCDH) is a cost-effective, scalable method of exchanging patient data among health information exchanges (HIEs). Set up by the exchange of zip code information and the resolution of governance and trust issues, PCDH is based on triggering episode alerts, which notify providers a care event has occurred outside of the patients’ “home” HIE, and confirms the availability and the specific location of the clinical data. This enables providers to initiate a simple query to access real-time information across state and regional lines and the care continuum. PCDH is an initiative of the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) that puts into practice the vision that clinical data should be available whenever and wherever care occurs and “centered” around the patient to improve patient care. In this model, all clinical data becomes part of the comprehensive longitudinal patient record in the HIE where the patient resides, called the PCDH.

Learning Objectives: 

  • List an example of a governance or compliance issue that must be resolved in order to set up a Patient-Centered Data Home exchange
  • Identify three or more steps in the Patient-Centered Data Home (PCDH) model
  • Illustrate how the exchange of information utilizing the PCDH model is a cost-effective, scalable solution to assuring real-time clinical data is available whenever and wherever care occurs to improve the quality of care
  • Describe how usage of “triggered” alerts notifies providers that a care episode has occurred outside of the patients’ HIE “home,” and confirms the availability and specific location of the clinical data to build a more comprehensive longitudinal patient record
  • Compare the ways PCDH is different from other national initiatives or approaches to data exchange
