Medicare patients see, on average, seven physicians, including five specialists, split among four different physician practices. With such movement between sites of care, it is essential to develop an interoperability strategy for patient data exchange between your MEDITECH HCIS to multiple vendor systems, including physician practices, labs, ERs, ADT systems, etc., in order to coordinate care.
Lack of care coordination results in both gaps and duplication in care and often leads to overtreatment, costing the United States between $148 and $226 billion annually.
A strong interoperability strategy can significantly reduce your hospital’s expenses and, most importantly, improve your patients’ care. A strategy begins by understanding your interface needs, both now and in the future, and the benefits of using an interface engine.
