Key learnings

Key Learnings

  • Governance is key – the closer the decision to the community, the easier the collaboration

  • Some portions of healthcare needs to remain local (disease management) and some are national in nature (prescriptions)

  • To be self sustaining, RHIO’s need to look for areas other than just messaging

  • Too many RHIO’s do not have credible plans for sustainability. Grants for seed funding is fine but operations should be self sustaining


Key learnings1

Key Learnings

  • Flexibility of technology important due to varying skills in the physician office

  • Logical RHIO area may be across state boundaries

  • “EMR Lite” provides a flexible way to start electronic communications and moves physician offices in right direction

  • Currently, EMR’s can create islands of information again

  • Process, process, process…
