The information healthcare leaders and administrators need is often siloed across multiple IT systems and organizations. In addition, it is difficult to access, often taking years to exact and normalize. It may be buried deep in the patient record or spread across databases that don’t speak to each other. Improving the flow and unification of data across health care systems, referred to as interoperability, is critical to helping organizations run more effectively, improving patient care and enabling people to live healthier lives. There is a growing body of regulatory requirements in the U.S. that reinforce interoperability of patient data as a priority for providers and health plans. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Cures Act Final Rule requires that patients have secure access to their electronic health information to use and share, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access Rule requires that health plans participating in federal exchanges share claims data with patients electronically.
