Sandlot Solutions, a leading healthcare information technology company, recently released The New Model of Health Information Exchanges: Using Data and Analytics to Improve Health Care Delivery, an industry report highlighting the evolution of health information exchange (HIE) and how advancements such as digital envelope technology drive new functionalities and capabilities.

Fourth-generation HIEs extend beyond the simple exchange of patient records to the meaningful use of data for the delivery and coordination of care at the individual and community levels.

The report details how the newest HIEs repurpose clinical, claims and administrative data from a variety of sources to generate meaningful information for real-time display to health providers and payers. A digital envelope securely delivers this information at the point-of-care, displaying actionable data to providers.

Within the clinician's workflow, providers not only have access to a patient's full electronic health record (EHR), they also receive timely prompts for appropriate interventions, education and follow-up, leading to more comprehensive diagnosis and care during a single visit. The digital envelope [] also offers expanded reporting for performance and risk-based quality metrics. "Digital envelope technology allows us to deliver valuable, actionable analytics for all HIE stakeholders -- clinical, claims and administrative," said Joe Casper, chief executive officer of Sandlot Solutions.

"We are proud to be an industry innovator providing definitive information that leads to evidence-based care, higher-quality outcomes, more timely care and a better healthcare experience overall." Sandlot Solutions specializes in HIE, data analysis services and comprehensive technical integration of software systems for physician offices and hospitals.

This integration includes over 600 office-based physicians, multiple hospitals and caregiver organizations such as home health agencies. Sandlot Solutions is also providing the HIE and analytics platform to support one of the 32 Pioneer ACOs. So far, data from over 2.6 million patients has been recorded, filtered, and aggregated in order to improve the quality of care for individuals and patient populations through a more efficient healthcare information management process.
