Health Information Exchange: The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), part of the Department for Health and Human Services, has awarded funds as part of its State Health Information Exchange (State HIE) cooperative Agreement Program. The goal of this program is to support efforts to rapidly build capacity for exchanging health information across the health care system both within and across states. The program moderator and panelists will discuss the expansion and development of new HIEs which are bringing together local communities and which then are connecting to the state network, including the challenges and lessons learned from a technical, governance, engagement, and sustainability point-of-view. The panelists will also discuss related offerings available to healthcare systems through the HIE including strategies to meet the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Meaningful Use requirements and how the HIE can be employed to share data for Transitions of Care. We coordinated this for the Central Illinois American College of Healthcare Executives Chapter and Greg Wahlstrom, Dr. Douglas Garland Jr., Carla Smith, Jack Malloy and Lauren Wiseman hosted this 90-minute panel discussion via webinar. This event includes an opportunity for Q&A.
With this course, attendees gained insight and tactics to:
- Present current status of the implementation of the state or territory’s HIE
- Discuss the successes, challenges, and lessons learned during the founding of the HIE and when on-boarding to the state network
- Examine Strategies to use HIE to meet Meaningful Use requirements at the system level
- How does the Admit, Discharge or Transfer (ADT) data assist the Insurance Plans?
- What are the incentives and penalties around meeting Meaningful Use Stage 2?
- Is the benefit of being able to exchange data electronically worth the cost?
