Connecting Communities Collaborative

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Please join our revitalized Connecting Communities Collaborative for our inaugural meeting -- a retrospective of the important role HIEs have played during Hurricanes, from Katrina to Harvey.

When Hurricane Katrina reached Louisiana in 2005, the number of physicians using electronic medical records was minimal. The concept of health information exchanges were mostly a conversation on the future of healthcare. Evacuees fled Louisiana, settling in Texas, and other states, without medical records, medication histories, or prescriptions. Paper records were destroyed and the need for...

Webinar: Incorporating Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Data for Holistic Care Delivery and Population Health Outcomes

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

This webinar addresses the use of behavioral health and substance abuse data to facilitate more connected and personalized care for at-risk populations.  Due to strict federal guidelines, behavioral health and substance abuse data have historically been excluded from health data exchanges. However, collecting and sharing this data are necessary components of population health management. With the emergence of the Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) legislation and the current state of America's opioid problem, rules for sharing this critical data are...

Webinar: Data Needs for Successful Value-based Care Outcomes

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Emerging value-based payment (VBP) models are critically important in meeting future needs for improved quality and cost of healthcare. This national movement away from fee-for-service (FFS) to VBP is a massive undertaking and the transition can be made more difficult when payment reform efforts occur as add-ons to traditional FFS contracts. One of the operational challenges inherent in the transition to VBP is appropriate use of clinical and administrative data. Guest speaker, Dr. Steven Waldren, is the Director of the AAFP's Center for Health IT, which assists family physicians and other...

Data Access and Privacy Committee

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Privacy issues and cybersecurity threats can wreak havoc among healthcare organizations. Malicious agents now seek patient data as frequently as financial information, and the value of a medical record far exceeds that of a stolen credit card. Today, the question facing most security officers is no longer whether a breach will occur, but rather when it will happen and what should be done to mitigate the damage. This new reality necessitates innovative approaches to managing risk and protecting data.

With nearly 6 in 10 hospitals using at least a basic electronic health record, the...

Webinar: Social Determinants: Alternative Drivers of Healthcare

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

The health care industry has customarily thought about health care data and individual responsibility as primary influencers of a person’s health outcomes. Organizations are now recognizing that alternative drivers, such as economic status, social factors and physical environment are also key influencers in health outcomes. But, how should organizations leverage social determinants in managing populations? How do they integrate these insights into existing processes to help providers make more informed decisions at an individual and population level?

Social determinants of health...

What is "identity interoperability" and how can you achieve it? - an eHI webinar

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

However, Price and others have also voiced concerns over the burden MACRA’s Quality Payment Program places on providers and questioned some of the CMS Innovation Center’s alternative payment model initiatives that now overlap with MACRA. For this reason, as we move...

Advancing Privacy and Security Practices through Information Governance

09:00 PM - 09:00 PM

The year of the healthcare hack begins anew as ransomware, cyber threats, and security incidents continue. Healthcare leaders must not only understand the threats but be able to look beyond current practices to protect our information assets. Information governance (IG) is an organization-wide framework that advances privacy and security practices to create enterprise-wide standards, policies, and practices for creation, access, use, disclosure, storage, and auditing of information. Information governance, a subset of corporate governance, has become a critical organizational competency that...

Evolve from Master Patient Index to Identity Interoperability

07:00 AM - 08:00 AM

The job of matching patient identities is becoming more difficult than ever before because of 5 major trends: 1. External data exchange 2. Patient engagement through portals and personal health record (PHR) apps 3. Analytics for PopHealth and outcome optimization 4. Innovative new applications and devices 5. Hospital consolidation Because of these trends, we can no longer rely solely on “indexing” patients in an MPI to match patient identities. Indexing was successful in the past because MPIs operated in an environment of few software systems that were controlled by one organization. But...
