Nebraska’s HIE Journey to a Population Health Utility

12:00pm - 1:00pm Friday, March 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W311A

Description

Though developing a population health utility is no small task, it became a significant achievement at Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NEHII) with its near zero tolerance of a “false positive” match rate, with a low tolerance of a “false negative” match rate to create a single record of the patient. NEHII focused on bringing trust and value to health information technology by creating solutions that move health data forward. The HIE is designed to share clinical and administrative data among providers in Nebraska and neighboring states. Its work in patient matching enabled safe data exchange when integrated with the state’s PDMP program to help solve the opioid crisis. The presenter will chronicle the state HIE’s journey from a purely transactional utility to a truly interoperable population health analytics platform that maintains a single view of the patient.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss methodologies on how integrating new clinical interoperability and PDMP features with a health information exchange can be utilized to improve patient care
  • Evaluate the drivers for a patient matching strategy, for both statewide health information exchange and in-transit deployment
  • Measure outcomes and sustainability in the engagement, workflow development, implementation and adoption of a patient matching strategy within a PDMP and HIE to achieve efficient data analysis and population health analytics
