More than half of health insurance provider CIOs surveyed by Gartner identified clinical data integration (CDI) as a top-five investment priority for their organization. However, many of these organizations lack access to clinical data, as well as the people, process, and technology to manage complex clinical data.
With hundreds of electronic health record and practice management systems in use today, and huge variety in how clinicians document patient care, we are faced with an epidemic of “clinical data disorder.” This makes it difficult to get value from clinical data for HEDIS reporting and other business critical uses. In this session, experts in clinical informatics and health information exchange will share proven strategies that health plans can use to overcome these challenges. The speakers will highlight approaches from partnering with HIEs to using standard-based data integration and normalization tools in-house.
