For ACOs, data integration is of utmost priority. ACOs consist of many isolated care providers who may use unique EHR systems to store their patient data. They need to easily exchange data between hospitals. The clinical data stuck in individual siloes is of little use. It’s imperative that no matter where the patient receives care, all clinical data is shared for better care delivery and to deliver improved health outcomes.
Interoperability helps to share data between disparate sources and therefore maintains the care continuum. Using interoperability, a patient’s complete health record, including demographical data, can be shared fluidly between individual providers. It is highly necessary for ACOs to enhance their patient experience and to engage in advanced payment models.
Is data sharing alone enough? The answer is No. Often, the clinical data shared between providers of an ACO may not be compatible to be shared forward or used in a combined format to compare diagnoses. It may hinder care delivery by providing duplicate irrelevant clinical data.
ACOs need an interoperability platform that can transform disparate sources into actionable valuable data resources. They need a solution in which data can be ingested in any format and then aggregated into FHIR standard actionable de-duplicated data.
Actionable data helps providers and the entire care framework of an ACO deliver patient-centric efficient care. 24/7 access to real-time clinical data helps providers understand the patient’s need at the point of care and thus engage in more benefitting care quality measures. It allows providers to deliver high-value, well-coordinated care and helps them meet quality metrics.
We, at Aigilx Health, have developed interoperable solutions that benefit the ACOs. We have scalable clinical data repositories and robust data-ingestion capabilities that can ingest clinical as well as claims data. With real-time metrics, you can identify and close care gaps, and engage in preventive care.
Aigilx health specializes in developing Interoperability solutions to create a healthcare ecosystem and aids in the delivery of efficient, patient-centric and population-focused healthcare.
