Leveraging Multi-Agency Interoperable Data Impacting Quality of Patient Care Outcomes

Tuesday, April 18 at 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM CT
South Building, Level 4 | S403
We need to look no further than September 11, 2001, as a case study of why it was so important to think about information sharing from an entirely new perspective. Healthcare is another dimension that struggles due to the challenges of interoperable systems geared towards promoting access to care, improving quality of care, and reducing the costs of care. This panel builds on what is currently being done and further envisions industry, federal, and state government systems designed toward common standards to enable efficient and on-demand data sharing with the desired safeguards in place. By developing guiding principles, shared vision, common standards, and optimizing mission effectiveness through shared services, we will create a future where improved outcomes and equal access to care can be realized. The panel will discuss the challenges associated with Governance, Enhanced Enterprise-Wide Data Correlation, Sharing Standards, Network and Data Interoperability, and Privacy Protection. We will challenge the status quo and discuss the primary objectives needed to foster better decision-making, performance, and accountability by promoting sharing of data across agencies that aim to promote and support social equity and benefits of millions of our citizens.

Learning Objectives

  • Improved patient care: By sharing and integrating data across federal agencies, healthcare providers can access a more comprehensive and up-to-date view of a patient's medical history, allowing them to make more informed decisions about treatment and care.
  • Increased efficiency: Data sharing and interoperability can reduce the need for duplicate testing and other costly and time-consuming processes, freeing up resources and enabling providers to focus on delivering high-quality care.
  • Enhanced coordination of care: Multi-agency data sharing and interoperability can facilitate better coordination between different healthcare providers, such as primary care doctors, specialists, hospitals, and pharmacies, to ensure that patients receive the right care at the right time.
