Checking in on the future of interoperability with 21st Century Cures and TEFCA regulations.
MEDITECH AVP Strategy & Professional Services Larry O’Toole speaks with CommonWell TV about the significance of recent government regulations around data sharing, as well as the potential impact on interoperability for the healthcare industry.
O’Toole highlights the promise that 21st Century Cures and TEFCA offers our customers:
Increased patient care and patient safety: Making the data elements that include allergies and medication information available to providers so they can be used for clinical decision support is essential.
Greater efficiency: Rather than hindering the providers with data, ensure they are getting the right data at the right time in the workflow.
Support for value-based care: Making the shift towards population health and reaping the benefits of data analytics will positively impact care coordination and care management. The analytics around understanding populations, their health conditions, and how to manage them is essential in the overall paradigm of value-based care.
