5 Key Takeaways
- Some of the ongoing friction between payers and providers in healthcare is caused by ineffective and incomplete clinical data exchange.
- Both sides of the equation (payers and providers) have a lot to gain through better interoperability and clinical data exchange.
- Unstructured data and aggregating EMR information from smaller physician practices are two of the biggest challenges for more effective payer-provider clinical data exchange.
- Once collected, data must be validated and quality checked to verify that data streams from the provider EMRs match the standardized sent to payers. Clean, correct data is the foundation for the advancement of interoperability, better quality scores and value-based performance.
- KLAS’s K2 Collaborative and 1000 Points of Light program is an important effort to reducing friction between providers, payers and vendors through technological innovation.
