The HIMSS Health IT Value Suite
The HIMSS Health IT Value Suite provides both a structure and vocabulary with which your enterprise can organize its value strategy as well as ultimately realize greater value through your health IT investments. The suite highlights hundreds of examples of hospitals, physician practices, communities and accountable care organizations that have realized the full value of Health IT. This suite links to original sources including many detailed case studies that reveal strategy, tactics and the measures used to document value in five categories. Let’s explore the components of the HIMSS Health IT Value Suite.
The HIMSS STEPS™ model provides an easily understood vocabulary for stakeholders to take advantage of when formulating their value strategies. The STEPS™ model is built around five categories: Satisfaction, Treatment/Clinical, Electronic Information/Data, Prevention & Patient Education, and Savings.
The Meaningful Use Fact Finder section delivers easily accessible information on Meaningful Use measures and reporting timelines. This section of the suite illustrates how the components of Meaningful Use lay the technical foundation for organizations that seek high levels of realized value which benefits patient and organizational stakeholders.
Organizations that institute effective strategic patient engagement initiatives build strong relationships with their patients and communities, resulting in a better patient experience with the healthcare system, as well as better health for patients and populations. The Patient Engagement section of the HIMSS Health IT Value Suite provide information around how to get started, how to implement your patient engagement strategies, how to optimize them, as well as testimonials from organizations that have realized value through Patient Engagement initiatives.
One way to begin your value journey is with the Pathways to Value section of the suite. This is a free collection of action plans focused on key areas with high potential for value realization: Clinical Decision Support (CDS); Remote Monitoring; Clinical Business Analysis; Information Exchange for Care Coordination; and Patient Safety.
