How Health IT Works to Support Patient-Centered Medical Home

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 24016

The intent of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) continues to be recognition of primary care practice models that have achieved a mature level of transformation toward improving population health; improving the experience of care for both patient and provider; and reducing the cost of care through greater efficiencies of integrated patient-centered care coordination.   The redesigned process uniquely positions practices, staff and other key stakeholders to focus more on performance and quality improvement, and alignment with public and private initiatives in health care that reward value-based care.  

During this webinar, we highlighted the NCQA PCMH Core and Elective criteria. We also focused on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules and eCQMs, and then ended the learning session by taking a deeper dive to discuss the integral role pre-validated health IT plays in practice transformation and physician alignment with public and private payer programs that reward for value-based care.

Beyond Boundaries: ONC’s 2017 Technical Interoperability Forum

An In-Person ONC Event

Alyssa Thomas 0 14862

On August 15-16, 2017, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will host a two-day, in-person only, technical interoperability forum with standards and technology industry stakeholders to:

  1. Identify industry alignment around priority interoperability use cases.
  2. Gain insight into current and expected interoperability challenges, including information blocking.
  3. Better understand next steps that respective stakeholders can take individually and collectively to improve interoperability among health IT systems.

The 21st Century Cures Act charges ONC with improving interoperability among health IT systems, including reducing information blocking, and enhancing the usability, accessibility, and privacy and security of health IT.  Likewise, the law encourages continued engagement with industry stakeholders to inform both challenges and successes in achieving interoperability.

These two days will focus on how ONC, our federal partners, the health care industry, and the technology sector can come together to shape the technical aspects of interoperability to achieve these important goals. If you lead, develop, and implement health IT systems or standards, this event is for you.
