As healthcare organizations embrace new revenue models, they must also rethink how they deliver care. Hospitals and providers must work together across a multitude of care settings to deliver better care, more efficiently, while engaging patients in managing their own health.
This type of collaboration is not easy, but it is possible with an enterprise health information exchange (HIE) solution – one that creates a clinical data repository by connecting disparate data sources about a patient's health into a single, longitudinal community health record.
An Enterprise HIE solution isn’t just about data sharing. It’s also about streamlining workflow and bringing the collaboration capabilities right to the desktop for better care coordination, regardless of the care setting.
HIE solutions should address a range of needs, from medical record sharing to results delivery and the exchanging of continuity of care documents during transitions in care. Enterprise HIE solutions can improve care coordination by helping providers:
A robust HIE solution needs to be able to manage a patient’s identity across multiple networks, while supporting privacy, security and consent requirements.
Accountable care organizations, patient-centered medical homes, and pay-for-performance systems all depend upon HIEs to deliver patient-centered care, measure and report performance, share health information, and improve care coordination.
