Combating Interoperability Failure, No More Patients Killed by Friendly Fire?

Aug 5, 2015

Are organizations hoarding? Unwilling to share? Uncooperative? Heartless? When referring to the sharing of patient clinical records, are we talking about EHR vendors, acute care provider organizations, family practice doctors, or HIEs? It doesn’t matter much if the patient dies as a result of not sharing records. It doesn’t much matter if that lack of sharing records kills the patient. In September of 2014, many of the largest EMR vendors challenged KLAS to step up and be the Switzerland of interoperability to help speed up plug-and-play clinical exchange that effortlessly slides into the clinician workflow. Accepting the assignment with trepidation, KLAS will use key findings from over 240 recent healthcare provider interviews as a catalyst for actionable solutions at the KLAS Keystone Summit, Oct. 1–2.

Jun 30, 2015

As the United States prepares for ICD-10’s deadline, healthcare providers across the nation look inward to evaluate their organizations’ ability to cope with efficiency loss. Many have purchased computer-assisted coding solutions, but, many of these providers still have unmet expectations. In order to hedge their bets, many organizations have contracted coders from multiple outsourced coding firms to supplement their in-house coders. The hope is that when they need even more coders, they will be able to leverage their existing vendor relationships to fill the gaps.

1,217 PHI Breaches and Counting

May 27, 2015

Since October 2009, 1,217 breaches of unsecured protected health information (PHI), each affecting more than 500 individuals, have been reported to the Office for Civil Rights. These breaches have affected a total of 133,253,121 people. As smaller breaches do not need to be reported to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the real number of PHI breaches is certainly much higher. For instance, the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) has found that since 2005, breaches in the medical/healthcare industry have affected more than 156 million people.
