“The current and anticipated growth of HIEs nationwide is palpable, and ICA is helping organizations to optimize their market success,” says John Tempesco, chief marketing officer, ICA. “Our experienced team of professionals have articulated best HIT practices to enhance the planning and implementation of multi-community HIEs, and now we are pleased to share this knowledge base.”
“Building A Solid Base: A Solution for a Multi-Community Health Information Exchange” demonstrates that by utilizing shared National Health Information Network (NHIN) functionality, multiple communities can interoperate within and among HIEs, across states, and with federal agencies. This approach allows for: collaboration with providers, patients, and stakeholders to integrate care, improve health, and provide needed information at the point of patient care; the delivery of real, measurable results with accelerated implementation and adoption both within a community and across communities.
“The Future of Interoperability: Emerging NoSQLs Save Time, Increase Efficiency, Optimize Business Processes, and Maximize Database Value” describes a new class of database technologies, “NoSQL,” with the goal of reducing the dissonance between programming languages and databases, and increasing performance in store-and-retrieve style applications. These technologies show promise for staring data naturally so it can be worked within the programming language much more easily, and provides higher performance, greater scalability, and simplified programming interface for specific applications.
“Meaningful Use: Successful Deployment of EHRs within a Community Setting” describes how electronic health records (EHRs) can accomplish major objectives by: improving the quantity and quality of data with reduction in errors; sharing and collaborating with patients, providers, and other stakeholders; identifying, measuring, and tracking treatment patterns to improve clinical decision-making; ensuring that information is securely shared and privacy concerns are addressed to maintain trust among all participants.
“Striking a Balance: The Conflict and Contradiction Between Patient Privacy and Information Accessibility for Achieving Improved Patient Care and Cost Efficiencies” explains the importance of patient privacy and security within HIEs. HIEs remain the critical channel for delivering improved outcomes, safety, and efficiency in health care, whether the environment is a hospital, integrated delivery network community, or a state.
