WEBINAR: Vaccination Scheduling, Administration, and Documentation in a Digital World

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic is the first mass vaccination effort in decades and it revealed cracks in our healthcare infrastructure. In the beginning of the vaccine rollout in many states, scheduling websites were unable to handle the traffic and to limit the number of appointments scheduled to the number of vaccine doses available. Most providers had no coordinated waitlist method for ensuring that vaccines did not go to waste, even in the face of no-show appointments. Additionally, everyone is now having to deal with the issue that has plagued parents of school-age children for decades: trying...

WEBINAR: Federal Effort Aims to Standardize Addresses to Improve Patient Matching

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

In December 2020, a federal initiative, Project US@, was launched by ONC to help accurately link patients’ medical records across the various facilities where they receive care. The goal of the initiative is to develop a specific standard for one piece of information that is essential for connecting medical records: patient addresses. Research shows that use of a consistent format for recording mailing addresses can lead to dramatically improved patient matching rates. 

On April 1, eHI will lead a discussion with experts from ONC, Pew Charitable Trusts, and NextGate to talk about...

Join LexisNexis Risk Solutions, eHI, and state healthcare leaders to discuss the critical role of data-driven approaches in designing, implementing, and evaluating state healthcare programs. 

Key points of discussion include:

  • How different states source and utilize SDOH data
  • Opportunities for data sharing and public-private collaboration to address vulnerable...

2021 Industry Pulse: ONC/CMS Final Rule Compliance Requirements

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

In March 2020, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) released regulations that have far-reaching implications for the health care system. These two rules implement interoperability and information blocking provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act and aim to empower patients by facilitating access to individual medical data in order to make informed health care decisions. While the original applicability timeframe was pushed back due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, many provisions go into effect...

WEBINAR: The Case for a Learning Health System: Lessons from COVID

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

When COVID-19 spread across the country, it took months for hospitals to piece together the best treatment options, share those learnings and for providers to adopt them. The traditional medical approach is too slow for today’s public health crises. 

It's time for the American healthcare system to learn from the past and accelerate best practices. We can build systems that combine knowledge from providers with machine learning to intelligently apply that information to digital clinical pathways – giving providers the best of what's learned in the profession at any given time....

WEBINAR: Impact of Information Blocking Rules on Health Information Exchanges

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Nearly one year ago, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released final regulations to implement information blocking provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act.

This year, all eyes turn to compliance with the regulations, which could be especially complicated for health information exchanges (HIEs) given how they operate in the health care system and their contractual arrangements with providers. In this webinar, hear from experts and HIEs directly about the...

WEBINAR: Using Artificial Intelligence & Automation to Reduce Administrative Burden in a COVID-19 World

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

Since the pandemic struck, investment in AI platforms has skyrocketed. In this webinar, we will hear what is driving the current AI investments including cost savings, improved provider, and patient experience, reducing staff burnout and administrative burden.

WEBINAR: SDOH Impact on Equity and Diversity in Clinical Trials

01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

The FDA reports that only five percent of clinical trial participants are Black, fewer than two percent are Asian, and fewer than one percent are Latino. This grossly uneven representation in clinical research means that current treatments may not be equally safe and effective for all populations. These findings suggest a need for a larger focus on the social determinants of health (SDOH) when designing clinical trials. Especially in light of recent concerns over the lack of racial diversity in COVID-19 research, it is urgent that we address this health equity issue.

On Jan 12, eHI...
