This white paper outlines the problems U.S. employers face; why seamless data exchange among disparate networks is central to the solution; and the interoperability problems we must solve. We’ll discuss the fact that:
• U.S. employers bear a large burden of private healthcare spending to cover their employees.
• Data is key to managing healthcare costs, but special effort is needed to move data between networks.
• A focus on data standards common to all networks allows healthcare organizations to focus on making the right connections among disparate networks.
The white paper also discusses the three interoperability challenges and includes two case studies - from Intel and Geisinger.
To achieve meaningful interoperability, now and in the future, healthcare organizations across the country are having to rethink the way they approach clinical data exchange.
Produced in partnership with HIMSS Media, this white paper features the perspectives of three healthcare executives:
