Integrating Social Determinants Into an HIE Network

1:00pm - 2:00pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W209C

Description

Given the growing need to regularly integrate clinical, social, genetic, environmental, and other data on individuals and populations, the Regenstrief Institute Center for Biomedical Informatics is creating the Indiana Network for Population Health (INPH). The INPH is an information infrastructure that will provide a data platform and governance mechanism to facilitate gathering, managing, sharing, and using population health data across a wide set of stakeholders for both practice and research. The platform is initially being constructed to support immediate use in response to the opioid crisis, yet the platform is designed to accommodate other high priority population health use cases. The presentation will focus on how the infrastructure incorporates data on the social determinants of health into an existing environment that facilitates information exchange across hospitals, clinics, payers, laboratories, and other healthcare organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the challenges associated with integrating data on the social determinants of health with existing electronic medical records and administrative health data
  • Identify and describe potential sources for social determinants of health data that can be easily accessed by health IT products or infrastructures
  • Discuss techniques for integrating data from multiple sources into a community-wide, health information exchange network for patient care, as well as population health management
