Event Overview

Activities of the Enterprise HIE, also known as a “private” HIE, commonly involve integration efforts driven by an organizational entity such as an independent hospital, a hospital system, or a physician organization working in tandem with a hospital or healthcare system). Public HIEs or those that are a combination of Public and Private ownership works with multiple independent organizations who have come together in a separate HIE organization to leverage economies of scale around data exchange. The benefits of these HIEs position their participants to positively affect patient care in many ways. But how? Among the examples, data sharing activities of both public and private HIEs ensure that information is accessible within a care setting, across multiple care settings, and that patients experience lower healthcare costs due to elimination of redundant tests and procedures. The results is that both the patient and the HIE participant can expect to experience an increase in the quality of care provided based on the presence of longitudinal information. By focusing on driving value through HIE organizations and the accountability of care delivered, attendees will gain a greater understanding of how nationally-recognized models of health information exchange focus on what truly matters: delivering affordable, quality care where it’s needed.

12:15PM-1:15PM CT The Integration of Enterprise HIEs and Statewide HIE Initiatives: One State’s Experience
  Abstract: Enterprise HIE’s ultimately integrate with state-wide HIEs for sharing of patient information. In this session, the speaker will describe how the formation of multiple Enterprise HIEs in one state is progressing and the challenges and opportunities that are being experienced as the State level HIE (SLHIE) initiative intersects with each of the HIEs. The statewide initiative provides distinct services to the Enterprise HIEs and to provider organizations that may not be part of one of these. In this session, the role and strategies of the State Level HIE in systems integration will be explained in the context of improving information sharing and patient engagement.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the various service offerings and related approaches that the SLHIE organization provides to their stakeholder community (especially providers) supporting industry initiatives including MU, care coordination, ACOs, population health and public health
  • From a patient’s perspective, describe how the HIE organization supports patient/ family engagement and impacts the patient care experience in a positive manner
  • Explain the challenges, solutions and opportunities that the HIE experienced on its journey in deployment and management of their health information exchange services
