The Power of Standardized Unstructured Data Management: Achieving Meaningful Use Interoperability, Complete Patient Narrative
Driven largely by the Medicare and Medicaid EHR incentive programs, EHR adoption in the U.S. has been growing exponentially and exceeding federal health officials’ expectations. Although the Dept. of Health and Human Services has delayed the qualification date for Stage 2 Meaningful Use until 2014, healthcare providers expect more complex HIE to be included. In order to easily and efficiently share patient information with multiple entities, including other EHRs and health information systems, providers, payers and HIEs, healthcare providers will need to capture, manage and make electronically accessible a broader set of clinical data elements. Read this white paper, including Healthcare IT News reader survey responses, to learn how to manage and digitize unstructured documents in order to meet Stage 2 requirements.
