National hie landscape

National HIE Landscape

  • National HIT Agenda Completing Year 4

    • American Health Information Community (AHIC) – Establish Use-case Priorities

      • 2005 – Establish Workgroup focus areas

      • 2006 – 3 Use-cases

      • 2007 – 4 Use-cases

      • 2008 – 6 Use-cases

    • AHIC mechanisms drive processes on Standards, Certification, Exchange, Policy


National hie landscape1

National HIE Landscape

  • Health Information Technology Standards Panel

    • Harmonizes standards and establishes interoperability specifications to implement AHIC use cases

    • Interoperability specifications comprised of “Transaction Packages” or building blocks that can be re-used

      • 2006 – 3 Use-cases  52 “recognized” standards

      • 2007 – 4 Use-cases  60 “accepted” standards

      • 2008 – 6 Use-cases  102 “data exchange requests”

    • Interoperability specifications based on existing standards & Frameworks such as Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE)


National hie landscape2

National HIE Landscape

  • Nationwide Health Information Network

    • Phase 1 – Four contracts, three geographies/contract to show HIE

    • Phase 2 – Begin to incorporate AHIC use-cases and use of HITSP specifications in a trial implementation

      • Five Federal agencies

      • 15 health information exchanges (state, regional)

      • Testing in September 2008


National hie landscape3

National HIE Landscape

  • Marketplace Diffusion of HITSP Standards

WHIE: Focus

Overall Goal – right data available at right time

Specific New Behavior – retrieve and review regional data on every visit, update regional data as a result of the visit.


Developing state and regional level health information exchange breakout session

What is the Value Proposition that is supported by this new behavior?

Clinician – helps me to deliver better care

Patient – helps me to receive better care

Payer – helps me to save money

(maybe enough that I can share some with clinician and patient)


Developing state and regional level health information exchange breakout session

  • ED Linking Project

  • Conceived by committee led by WHA

  • Supported by hospital systems

    • - Milwaukee Health Care Partnership

  • Funded by State of WI DHFS

  • Technical services by Microsoft

  • Evaluation by MCW and UW-Madison

Integration through “interfaces”

The Amalga database is built from the standard feeds of existing data sources (an “Azyxxi Interface”)

Amalga Parsing Scripts are created for each Amalga Interface

The implementation process helps define:

Define how and where you’ll use Azyxxi to define desired Interfaces

What specific questions will you answer?

Who will be using it?

What data sources are required?

  • Flexible, “cellular” data structure

  • Data is divided into multiple components, clearly identifiable within each transaction

  • Data can be re-organized into unlimited buckets to answer an unlimited number of queries

  • Search is fast because it does not require scrolling through thousands of transactions to source the data.

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.
