Data Exchange, Integration Shortfalls Stymie Population Health
November 01, 2018 / Jennifer Bresnick
Slow and uneven progress towards seamless health data interoperability is making it difficult for healthcare organizations to access the data they need for population health management, according to the 2018 CHIME Most Wired trends survey. The survey, previously conducted by the American Hospital Association, found that adoption of care coordination and population management tools has been relatively slow, hampered by data aggregation issues and interoperability concerns. As a result, providers are having difficulty identifying gaps in care at the point of service, generating actionable insights into value-based care, and comparing quality and performance to evidence-based standards.
