Healthcare organizations receive a great deal of electronic data from EMRs, HIEs, digital imaging scans, insurance claims data, and more. If these sources are not interoperable, then it’s critical to enable healthcare informatics if you want to support deep and precise analytics.
Data management, particularly integration and data quality are key components of health informatics, healthcare informatics, and health information management. Organizations need to tap into these same informatics in order to answer important questions such as:
- How do we reduce readmissions?
- Where are there gaps in care, and how do we close them?
The answers to such complex questions call for longitudinal views of patient information at both the individual and patient registry level across the continuum of care.
