Regulatory policies have prompted greater use of core health information exchange (HIE) services. Since Stage 2 Meaningful Use requirements have been enacted, many hospitals have implemented notification systems for better care transitions, Direct, secure messaging, exchange of lab results and public health reporting. According to a 2014 Survey on Health Data Exchange, most hospitals surveyed report that access to external organization data is a challenge and that interoperability continues to be an obstacle as organizations work to integrate with multiple EHR vendors.

Unlike today’s health data exchange and interoperability standards that are based on cross-document exchange, FHIR uses application programming interfaces (APIs) for data level access. FHIR’s modular components called “resources” can be combined together to solve clinical and administrative problems in a practical way. 

Place orders easily, receive results seamlessly. Add the orders service to Exchange to allow your physicians to quickly and easily place orders for hospital services including laboratory, radiology and even rehab.

Direct secure message to foster innovation in the years ahead. Discussions about health care interoperability often focus on barriers and shortcomings, when in fact the current environment is performing reasonably well. While interoperability isn't yet where it needs to be, a great deal of meaningful exchange of health care data is happening today in ways that would have been impossible a few years ago. This points the way for gains to come.

One of the key financial levers for a successful accountable care organization (ACO) is growing the patient population and then retaining those patients within the ACO network. Although most ACO leaders recognize that patients seek care out-of-network, many participating providers underestimate the extent of the problem. In reality, between 55 percent and 65 percent of patient care may fall outside the ACO network (see e-Care Management Blog, “Patient ‘Leakage’: Rethinking Two Field-of-Dreams Assumptions About ACOs,” June 27, 2011).
