“It’s all in the presentation”- Using analytics to transform health care

Deltek Analyst Amanda White reports.

The 2011 ehealth National Forum on Health Information Exchange (HIE) was held July 14, 2011 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. The conference consisted of numerous panel discussions and brought together an array of nationwide health care leaders. The goal of this year’s conference was to discuss challenges and best practices needed to achieve sustainable national health information exchange. Areas of discussion included the following:

  • How HIEs can work with the Direct Project
  • Coordinating efforts for success with insurance exchanges and HIE
  • Meaningful use through HIEs
  • Different revenue models for sustainability
  • IT infrastructure required to support accountable care organizations

A major theme throughout the conference was the importance of presentation of data produced by information exchanges. During a panel discussion on using analytics to transform health care, much attention was given to exploring ways in which HIEs can present data in a way that provides the most value to the delivery of care. With all of the initiatives resulting from health care reform, hospitals are being forced to reorganize their departments, services to customers, and overall capabilities.
