Interoperability, information blocking, and the coming data tsunami

Increased interoperability – specifically, the sharing of electronic health data between systems – can be an enormous help for clinicians. But as new federal rules are put into action, clinicians may soon be facing too much of a good thing. Download our latest white paper for more on the coming “data tsunami.”

Data_Tsunami_Interoperability

Interoperability between electronic health records (EHRs) and health information systems can help clinicians access data essential to patient care. In particular, as patients visit multiple providers, the need to share data across different systems is paramount.

The US Department of Health and Human Services recently passed two new rules designed to increase data sharing in the medical industry. However, an often-overlooked consequence of such initiatives is how clinicians will manage the resulting flood of data and documentation. Indeed, one of the great challenges of interoperability is not just making sure data can be shared, but making sure it is shared intelligently, and in an organized, manageable way.

In our new whitepaper, IMO’s Chief Medical Officer, Andrew S. Kanter, MD, explains how the new legislation impacts providers. Interoperability, information blocking, and the coming data tsunami also explores ways to develop smart solutions to help offset the potential negative impact of the approaching influx of data.
