eBook: Four ways interoperability supports better care
Learn how interoperability supports better care and helps keep your facility competitive. Skilled nursing providers share many of the same goals and standards as the rest of the healthcare ecosystem. For instance, the need to share patient information quickly and effectively. In doing so, providers’ ability to exchange information allows data to do what it should: follow the patient, facilitate care transitions, and improve outcomes.
To recap, interoperability is the right information moving to the right place at the right time. So, it must be a secure, and HIPAA-compliant way to exchange accurate, timely clinical data throughout the patient journey. From easy access to a patient’s history from a referral source to the ability to rapidly reconcile diagnoses and medications, to discharge and follow-up orders. By enabling access to the entire patient record, interoperability helps skilled nursing providers increase healthcare efficiency, decrease costs, and improve patient outcomes.
