32H - Health Data Utility: Solving Today’s Healthcare and Public Health Challenges
Monday, March 20
Leveraging the significant HITECH-funded investments, many states are partnering with HIEs to rapidly accelerate value for state Medicaid agencies and state departments of public health. Some states are using a health data utility model, where a nonprofit HIE is designated to operate a regulated network where everyone transmits clinical information across the healthcare ecosystem. Other states are relying on the HIE to provide advanced analytics for important data and reporting objectives of their programs. This session will highlight innovative case examples—such as assisting the clinical staff in jails in coordinating the healthcare needs of incarcerated individuals and utilizing the person-matching framework to provide identity-as-a-service for various state agencies.
