Interoperability Sets the Foundation for Care Coordination

10:30am - 11:30am Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3304

Description

The term “interoperability” is used frequently in healthcare today, yet its meaning is often misunderstood. In order to be effective, providers must do more than share information; they must do it in a way that is easily consumed by the recipient. In a value-based care world, the technology must also be affordable enough and easy enough to use that it can be easily incorporated throughout the entire care continuum. This session will explore how regional health system, SSM Health, drove the adoption of an interoperability platform that simplified the exchange of patient data with skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), long-term post-acute care communities, and other providers within normal workflows. It will also show the measureable results this interoperability yielded in improving medication reconciliation, closing care gaps, increasing diabetic eye examinations and reducing length of stay in SNFs as part of bundled payment arrangements.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the challenges hospitals face in extending care coordination to providers throughout the care continuum
  • Recognize the role interoperability plays in improving care coordination to support the transition to value-based care
  • Identify opportunities to improve interoperability within their own organizations to deliver the care coordination required for value-based care
