Health information exchange – both the noun and the verb – can be successful when you combine innovative, evolving technology with a sense of community and trust among healthcare providers. We’ve all heard tell that HIEs are dead, but that is far from true. The fact is that some HIEs are evolving and forging a new path to successful care coordination. Ohio’s CliniSync HIE, powered by Medicity, is a model of that success. Using a grassroots, regional strategy, the HIE has grown to include more than 6,000 primary care physicians, 141 hospitals, 820 practices, 290 long-term, post-acute care facilities, and 13,200 direct email addresses. Since its inception, Ohio providers have received over $1 billion in Meaningful Use incentive payments. CliniSync HIE has clearly discovered the key to meeting the needs of the ever-changing ecosystem of hospitals, physicians, clinicians and all who touch the lives of patients.
In this webinar, Brian Ahier, Director of Standards and Government Affairs for Medicity, will provide a short overview of the changing health care landscape and the role of the HIE in helping organizations move toward value based care models. He will touch on the latest on Meaningful Use 3 and FHIR. From there, Dan Paoletti, CEO of Ohio Health Information Partnership, will delve into the CliniSync story, providing an in-depth analysis of the organization’s journey to success. Paoletti will also provide best practices and other take-aways that attendees can apply to their own organizations.
This webinar is geared toward CMO, CMIO, CTO, CSO, senior IT executives, government and public policy professionals.
Attendees for this webinar will come away equipped with actionable information that can be applied to their own HIE initiatives. These include:
1. The benefits of a community-based approach to HIE and care coordination 2. How to use a phased-in approach to engage hospitals, physicians, specialists, long-term care and others
3. How to establish client “champions”
4. How to assist hospitals and physicians so they can reach MU Stage 2 through the exchange of CCD-As and summaries of care
5. How to create a secure, HIPAA-compliant provider email directory
