Long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) provider organizations have long played an important yet frequently overlooked role in the U.S. healthcare delivery system. Now, as LTPAC organizations are elevating in prominence in the current healthcare ecosystem via ACOs and population health initiatives, there is a renewed interest in ensuring they have a visible presence in digital health. Following the Certified Associate in Healthcare Information and Management Systems (CAHIMS) certification roadmap, explore issues that LTPAC organizations should consider in leveraging digital health technologies to support their internal and external clinical data needs, and how hospitals, consultants and vendors can best address the specific digital health concerns and challenges of LTPAC organizations.

  2. Identify at least three unique issues LTPAC provider organizations should consider in designing, analyzing, and/or addressing their healthcare IT needs.
  3. Detail at least one solution LTPAC providers can employ in exchanging health data with area hospitals
