The suite is designed to enable public health officials to access and analyze operational and clinical statistical data in a state’s HIE. The West Virginia Health Information Network is an early adopter.
HIE Advantage uses near real-time clinical data from providers, claims data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and data from other sources that are stored in state HIE repositories. The goal is to monitor community health status while improving outcomes, according to Truven Health, previously the health care business of Thomson Reuters.
Reports analyze prevalence, process of care and outcome metrics for specific diseases, as well as rates of screening and preventive care to identify communities at higher risk for poor health status. More information is available here.
