White Paper

Interoperability in the Age of Population Health Management – Part 2

Share this post:

Population health management (PHM) challenges healthcare organizations to leverage the vast array of data they have in unprecedented ways. Key executives within those healthcare organizations are also being asked to use new information technology tools to manage populations.

This whitepaper was created for healthcare organizations addressing challenges in building a data infrastructure for PHM such as:

  1. The ability to integrate and analyze clinical, administrative and claims data from multiple sources in near real-time.
  2. The ability to insert the relevant integrated data and analytic insights into the workflows of the care team members so they can use the information in patient care.

In part one of this two-part series, we explored the issues pertaining to data integration. In part two, we explore workflow integration. In addition, we look at technology known as Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR), and how it will facilitate the integration of outside applications with electronic health records to support population health management.
