"[Health] Information should follow the patient, and artificial obstacles – technical, business related, bureaucratic – should not get in the way."

Dr. Blumenthal


About the research l.jpg
About the Research artificial obstacles – technical, business related, bureaucratic – should not get in the way."

Porter Research and Billian’s HealthDATA fielded a primary market research program aimed at understanding providers’ perceptions of the Health Information Exchange (HIE) movement

  • Web-based survey designed by Porter Research

  • Fielded October 2010

  • Select titles targeted and pulled from Billian HealthDATA’s 150,000+ database of hospital decision makers

  • More than 120 respondents

  • Participating organizations represent critical access to multi-facility systems and IDNs

  • Respondents were typically at a C- (54%) or Director-level (21%) within their organization

  • Functionally, most participants had Information Technology (39%), Medical/Clinical (15%), or Finance (13%) responsibilities

Data Exchanged Today

In 2007 Tift Regional Medical Center began an IT initiative to share data with a large multi-specialty physician practice in the community.

.

This collaboration resulted in hospital patient results (lab and radiology) being shared with the physicians – populating their respective EMRs

Tift Regional’s HIE - Initial Steps artificial obstacles – technical, business related, bureaucratic – should not get in the way."

Initial Steps in Data Exchange

Focused on hybrid registration process. HIE technology intercepts all order requisitions to a web work que.

Patients are pre-registered into the hospital ADT solution – for Lab and Radiology orders based on this que and matching occurs.

Signed physician orders for lab and radiology tests are sent electronically to the hospital documentation system to become part of the medical record.

Results for lab and radiology tests performed at the hospital are sent to the practice and populate the AllScripts EMR TouchWorks for viewing.

Future Steps in Data Exchange

Focus on solidifying exchange within the health system

Implementation of a comprehensive enterprise MPI solution, as well as, improved integration between Allscripts and McKesson’s Horizon solutions.

Exchange patient data within the medical community of Tifton.

- Exchange data with other physician affiliated (non-owned)

Exchange of patient and quality data within an

Accountable Care Organization (ACO)

that will extend beyond Tifton.

Exchange data with a statewide Georgia HIE.


Common barriers challenges l.jpg
Common Barriers/Challenges artificial obstacles – technical, business related, bureaucratic – should not get in the way."

Lack of Common Definitions

What is an HIE? There are different meanings and understandings. Some think interfaces are all that is required, some think an HIE is a patient portal, still others see HIE as something else. Vendors even describe an HIE differently. We need to all speak the same language with the same purpose.

Growing need for more robust eMPI solutions

Matching a patient across one or two organizations is no longer satisfactory. We need to make sure the same patient matches throughout an organization, an ACO and an HIE

Integration and Interfaces

Many of today’s healthcare IT vendors are stuck 10 years in the past. Interfaces between hospital systems and physician EMRs are challenging and vendors are reluctant to cooperate in developing outbound clinical interfaces to other entities.


Common barriers challenges40 l.jpg
Common Barriers/Challenges artificial obstacles – technical, business related, bureaucratic – should not get in the way."

Security

Meeting HIPAA mandates while sharing PHI with other entities will require investment in robust security measures.

Cost

Health systems are struggling with managing to higher IT costs and reduced reimbursements. HIE expenses could be formidable. Who will foot the bill? Is and HIE model sustainable?
