1 Regional Health Information Exchange: Getting There Ed Barthell – Wisconsin Health Information Exchange Hugh Zettel, GE Healthcare

2 Questions What are RHIOs? Why RHIOs? What are clinical drivers for RHIOs in WI? What must happen to permit exchange? What should we be preparing to do?

3 Medical Trading Areas

4 US Administration’s Cornerstones for Care Connecting the System: Every medical provider has some system for health records. Increasingly, those systems are electronic. Standards need to be identified so all health information systems can quickly and securely communicate and exchange data. Measure and Publish Quality: Every case, every procedure, has an outcome. Some are better than others. To measure quality, we must work with doctors and hospitals to define benchmarks for what constitutes quality care. Measure and Publish Price: Price information is useless unless cost is calculated for identical services. Agreement is needed on what procedures and services are covered in each “episode of care.” Create Positive Incentives: All parties - providers, patients, insurance plans, and payers - should participate in arrangements that reward both those who offer and those who purchase high- quality, competitively-price health care.

5 WI 5 Year Pathway Create eHealth technology platform –Increase HIT adoption and use –Foster regional Health Information Exchange –Establish statewide services Value-based healthcare purchasing Enhance prevention and disease management

6 WI Assets & Readiness At least 17 operational projects exchanging personal health information electronically, with 11 more planned Almost 70% of practice sites have at least partially electronic records BUT No common data standards No common patient index


8 April 27, 2004 Executive Order 13335 Commitment to the promotion of health information technology to improve efficiency, reduce medical errors, improve quality of care, and provide better information for patients and physicians. Widespread adoption of interoperable electronic health records (EHRs) within 10 years so that health information will follow patients throughout their care in a seamless and secure manner. Establishment of Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC)

9 Two Critical Challenges 1. Interoperability and portability of healthcare information 2. Encouraging electronic health record adoption

10 HHS - ONC Contracts Standards harmonization – HITSP –Interoperability specs this fall Compliance certification – CCHIT –EHRs and infrastructure components National architecture – NHIN (four) –Prototypes for interoperability Security and privacy – RTI International –Wisconsin participating

11 Interoperability showcase - HIMSS07 in New Orleans. 60 organizations demonstrating interoperability in a clinical workflow. Based on Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) implementation guides.
