South Dakota Health Link has become one of the nation’s most successful state health information exchanges (HIE), thriving when other state HIEs have struggled or disbanded.

Thursday, June 4, 2015

While many providers now use electronic health records (EHRs) as a part of health care reform, communication is still largely paper-based. Many of them still rely on paper-based orders, test results, referrals and care transitions. In fact, a recent study shows only 14 percent of doctors electronically share patient information with other providers outside of their facility.1 As a result, staff members spend much of their day on time-consuming faxes, paperwork and calls. These tasks reduce productivity. They also often lead to delays, miscommunications and low patient and doctor satisfaction.

*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.

The healthcare industry is rapidly moving toward value-based models that pay for quality of care rather than quantity of care. These new models require providers and healthcare organizations to shift their business to contracts that require them to share risk, but sharing risk also means sharing data. In order to be successful, organizations’ current technology for capturing and sharing heath data will need to change, as they will need to use both structured and unstructured data to meet the needs of an evolving health system.

Healthcare organizations should consider the potential for "softer" returns when determining whether to invest in clinical care technology. As the industry transitions from fee-for-service to value-based payment models, providers increasingly need technologies to help them achieve the Triple Aim: better population health, lower costs, and better patient experiences. With each new investment, it is critical to identify which technologies have the potential to deliver the most value over the short and long term.
