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 Alliance for eHealth Innovation. Dr. Waldren will discuss the...
Harnessing data-driven insights to drive greater effectiveness and care quality is one of the highest priorities of healthcare organizations today. The implementation of an effective data strategy represents one of the cornerstones of better care, as well as greater operational efficiency.
Listen as experts discuss how a strategically developed approach that efficiently extracts, aggregates and processes clinical information from unstructured and structured formats utilizing advanced technologies, such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML), provides patient-...
Webinar: Incorporating Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Data for Holistic Care Delivery and Population Health Outcomes
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...
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...
Healthcare delivery is changing rapidly and delivering care via telehealth offers health systems an opportunity to provide patients with convenient high-quality care while competing in markets previously beyond their geographic boundaries.

Social determinants, the circumstances in which people live and work, have a strong effect on health and are linked with the development and management of chronic conditions. More than 35 social-behavioral determinants of health have been recommended by four federal institutions and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.
During this webinar Speakers will provide:
- Practical tips and advice to leverage Social-Behavioral Determinants of Health to maximize healthcare outcomes
- Guidelines for the prioritization, selection, implementation and...
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...
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...
Please join us to hear from fellow eHI members about current events and initiatives at eHI.
The future of healthcare in the US is based on an assumption that every health IT system can interoperate with every other health IT system—which would enable better care coordination and reduce costs. But how far along are we at actually achieving full interoperability and what can we do to get there?
Attendees of this webinar will first hear from Andrea Darby, the System VP of IT Integration - Applications at OhioHealth, about OhioHealth’s strategy to achieve interoperability within its own four walls. Then, attendees will hear from Wes Rishel, former VP and Distinguished...
EHRs offer robust data and analytics capabilities that routinely go unused.

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...
