While analysts, politicians, and social media leaders have lamented about healthcare’s challenges with interoperability, actual health care providers have been working diligently to take control of their health data and exchange it to improve the care of their patients.
Two recent reports illustrate the advances being made in healthcare. The American Medical Association published the report, “Achieving Interoperability that Supports Care Transformation: A Report of the American Hospital Association Interoperability Advisory Group” (downloads full PDF) that shows near-universal adoption of EHRs in non-acute care hospitals nationwide, with a large majority of those also exchanging data.
Additionally, KLAS Research released a performance report detailing exactly how health care providers are exchanging data in a paper titled “Interface Engines: Corepoint Outperforms all Best in KLAS Winners” (nice title, eh?).
The report is available for purchase on the KLAS Research website.
To give you a sense of findings from both reports, we created the following infographic (click to view full screen):
