Health information exchange is problematic, particularly when providers enter arrangements in which they need to exchange patient information—for example, in an accountable care organization or for the purpose of population health management. Even within an integrated delivery system, information exchange can be challenging. It’s even more of a problem when trying to link a variety of organizations, serving patients at different levels of the continuum of care, with a wide range of IT skill levels.

As providers aim to link together and share information, what are best practices that need to be incorporated in IT planning? How can integration efforts be organized to reduce the pain of the process? In this presentation, IT executives who have been through the process offer their past experience to attendees of this webinar.

During this presentation, attendees will learn:

  • To identify key integration concerns that need to be addressed when dealing with diverse organizations.
  • To address the challenges that provider organizations face in sharing data among different types of providers (for example, physician practices, hospitals and long-term care) and how a HIT executive can begin to overcome these challenges.
  • To assess how new technologies and capabilities (for example, FHIR and health information exchanges) fit into potential solutions.
  • To understand how to develop a game plan for data integration for your organization.
