ONC Commitment to make EHR’s work better for Providers and Individuals

ONC annoucement this week that could affect us all in regards to the information regarding our health records.  This commitment I believe will impact us all as both providers and recipients of supports and health care.  Here are the announced commitments:

 

Fact Sheet: Commitments from health care industry to make electronic health records work better for patients and providers

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced today that companies that provide 90 percent of electronic health records used by hospitals nationwide as well as the top five largest private healthcare systems in the country have agreed to implement three core commitments:

Consumer Access: To help consumers easily and securely access their electronic health information, direct it to any desired location, learn how their information can be shared and used, and be assured that this information will be effectively and safely used to benefit their health and that of their community.

No Information Blocking: To help providers share individuals’ health information for care with other providers and their patients whenever permitted by law, and not block electronic health information (defined as knowingly and unreasonably interfering with information sharing).

Standards: Implement federally recognized, national interoperability standards, policies, guidance, and practices for electronic health information and adopt best practices including those related to privacy and security.

2016…Come a long way!

So this week I brought another Missouri provider into the Therap community through a webinar.  I was a little hesitant at the start of the meeting as the person joining the Go To Meeting webinar said, “I hope it is allright as I am joining in on my phone instead of the computer?”  My hesitancy was that at the conclusion of the call it would be necessary for the person to enter in some data and initiate the process and activate the process by clicking on a button off the Therap website.  Regardless, we began and we went through the process and the entire process was completed in a matter of minutes.  No problems whatsoever!  It was pretty cool.  It was amazing for me to think back to the first agency in Missouri that started using Therap and how different things were then in comparison to this brand new agency signing up.  It has been so exciting to be apart of so many agencies moving to greater efficiency, transparency, higher accountability, and less paper chasing through the last several years.  It got me wondering and thinking just how many agencies in MO are still out there lost in a paper world?  If you haven’t taken the time to see how Therap can make a difference for your agency give me a call so we can show you this solution.

HIE continue to get more funding to improve data sharing…

Announcement today of more money that will go towards improving the sharing of EHR info across HIE’s.

HHS announces $1 million in new grant programs to help improve sharing of health information

Projects to help long-term and behavioral health care providers

National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Karen B. DeSalvo, M.D., M.P.H., M.Sc., announced today the availability of $1 million in grant funds to support community projects for the Community Interoperability Health Information Exchange (HIE) Program. The funding will help support and enable the flow of health information at the community level, leading to better care and better health.

The Community Interoperability and HIE program will provide funds to up to ten community organizations, state or local government agencies, or other community groups. The awards will help unlock health information and better integrate community resources advancing better care and healthier communities.

“The flow of health information across the entire care continuum is a critical step to realizing a learning health system that results in not only better care, but healthier people and communities. The new Community Interoperability and HIE program will fund local efforts that will leverage health IT in support of a more comprehensive digital data picture of health for people and their communities,” said Dr. DeSalvo.

Under the new grant program, awardees will demonstrate the use of health IT to the wide range of health providers, including those that are not eligible under the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Programs. These include long-term and post-acute care providers, behavioral health providers, individuals and their caregivers, and other care setting and providers. These additional providers could also be safety net providers, public health, social service, emergency medical services and other key members of the care continuum.
