Goodbye Medical Records Collection. Hello Clinical Data Exchange.

  • August 23, 2017
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Online

In today’s healthcare landscape, the payers and providers are under new pressures (financial, regulatory, and consumerism) to demonstrate value and quality. Payers and providers strive to deliver the right care at the right time in the right place to members and patients, but in today’s highly fragmented data ecosystem it is difficult and expensive to bring the information together efficiently and effectively to evaluate and improve the quality and value of the care delivered. The pressures, stresses, and frustrations will continue to grow as payment models shift from the traditional fee for service to value based care models that require tying cost, services, and outcomes data together seamlessly.

This webinar will provide an overview of the context and challenges of today’s clinical data exchange ecosystem between payers and providers. The focus will be on understanding the stakeholders (roles, needs, expectations), fragmentation and limitations of information exchange (paper vs. electronic), and the changing industry dynamics and requirements presented by Kiser Healthcare Solutions. athenahealth will then respond with how they are evolving and thriving in the ever changing ecosystem reducing the strains between providers and payers and helping their clients (payers and providers) address the fragmentation, burden, costs and improving the value delivered to patients.

By attending this webinar, participants will have a greater understanding of:

  • Today’s clinical data exchange ecosystem and changing dynamics
  • Stakeholders roles, needs, and expectations
  • Fragmentation, limitations, and opportunities in the ecosystem.
  • Demonstration of athenahealth’s work in addressing the challenges to meet the market dynamics and client needs for improved clinical data exchange between providers and payers.
