John Supra, Vice President of Solutions & Services, Care Coordination Institute
As the creation of clinically integrated networks and consolidation play a greater role in the business strategy toward value based care and population health management, IT leaders are left to address the challenges of efficiently and effectively integrating patient data from aligned medical groups, outpatient clinics, post-acute facilities, community partners, affiliated subsidiaries, and acquired hospitals when establishing a larger enterprise.
Comprehensive, data-rich medical records orchestrated across the system profoundly impact quality, cost and outcomes. Disjointed data leads to lower quality, patient safety risk, incomplete or inaccurate reporting and analytics, administrative burdens, higher total costs of care and lost revenue. An enterprise view of patient information is essential for informed clinical-decision making, effective episodic care and cost management, and a seamless patient experience during every encounter in the network.
Driven by its vision of a unified, clinically integrated healthcare delivery system for South Carolina, the Care Coordination Institute (CCI) is leveraging enterprise, cloud-based technologies to unify patient data across a myriad of systems, locations and populations for statewide outcomes improvement. CCI provides population health enablement services to more than 3,200 of the state’s providers across multiple clinically integrated networks, and is currently supporting population health integration efforts as the Greenville Health System and Palmetto Health come together to improve the health of South Carolinians.
This session will discuss how CCI has connected over 3,200 providers across South Carolina; success factors of meeting the evolving needs of clinically integrated networks (CINs), accountable care organizations (ACOs), and integrated delivery systems; strategies for leading large-scale data consolidations; and the role of patient identity as a foundational component for accurate health information exchange across disparate systems and sites of care.
