Medicity has worked with Trinity since 2010, providing electronic orders and results delivery, clinical summary exchange, closed loop referrals management capabilities and a Secure Messaging solution (using Direct protocol) to improve the exchange of information during transitions of care and meet Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU2) requirements.

Monday, December 15, 2014
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.

*For CHIME members only. This presentation will discuss three key lessons learned when Avera Health – an integrated delivery network – implemented a HISP/HIE to connect its 35 hospitals, 160 provider practices and 700 employed physicians. When planning began in early 2014, Avera determined that no HISP/HIE vendors stood out as more successful than others; this is simply a journey that had to be navigated. To minimize risk, capital investments and implementation costs, and to simplify maintenance to come, Avera chose to go with one HISP/HIE for all five states. Implementation proved challenging. Fortunately, Avera succeeded in overcoming these challenges. Since April 2014, more than 1,100 providers have sent or received messages across Avera’s HIE, including 115,000 transactions originating within Avera, and 107,000 transactions received by Avera. The organization has exchanged transactions with 27 other HISPs, for a total of 17,500 CCDs going outside the Avera HISP. As a result, all Avera hospitals and 97 percent of Avera EPs successfully attested for Meaningful Use Stage 2, and Avera is participating in many additional programs with the new exchange capability.

In this webinar, Brian Ahier, Director of Standards and Government Affairs for Medicity, will provide a short overview of the changing health care landscape and the role of the HIE in helping organizations move toward value based care models. He will touch on the latest on Meaningful Use 3 and FHIR. From there, Dan Paoletti, CEO of Ohio Health Information Partnership, will delve into the CliniSync story, providing an in-depth analysis of the organization’s journey to success. Paoletti will also provide best practices and other take-aways that attendees can apply to their own organizations.

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.
