The accountable care act hit1
The Accountable Care Act & HIT

  • Accountable Care Organizations:

    • Guiding Principle: If physicians and hospitals work together to prevent readmissions, duplicate tests and other unnecessary costs, healthcare will be less expensive and safer.

    • Health IT needs:

      • Capture patient data electronically - EHR

      • Gather patient data from all levels of care – HIE

      • Population data for care management - Registry

      • Real time decision support, alerts, patient access

      • Quality data warehouse
