Global Electronic Health Information Exchange Market Report 2020: Market is Driven by Need for Improved Efficiency and Efficacy

Dublin, Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Electronic Health Information Exchange Market” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report evaluates the current industry trends in HIE products and services. It also identifies the key vendors and their strategies. The report also answers the basic questions: What is an Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR)?, What is an EHR database?, and Why is there a need for an HIE?

Simply stated, an Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. While many leading companies are increasingly moving towards digital retention of records via EHR databases, information is typically available only within a closed system. In other words, medical facilities that are not part of the same group often cannot exchange data between their EHR systems.

To address this issue, HIE services have developed using current ICT technologies to greatly improve the completeness of patient’s records

Identifying Data Standards for Home Healthcare Data Exchange

By Christopher Jason

– Home healthcare facilities should implement and further develop Continuity of Care Document (CCD) standard codes to enhance patient data exchange, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA).

The CCD standard, a current yet underutilized data standard, successfully transferred much-needed admission documents for nurses at three diverse home healthcare agencies.

Medical providers transfer over 12 million US adults into home healthcare facilities on a yearly basis. Home healthcare nurses are required to assist patients with recovery and chronic disease. Nurses need adequate and timely patient data, yet it remains difficult for caregivers to access.

Researchers intended to analyze missing patient data at admission by determining the necessary information, the capability of the data standard to exchange data, and comparing the impact of interoperability of the data standard items in the admission documents.

Researchers analyzed three Pennsylvania

Montana health information exchange to launch later in year

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and a healthcare nonprofit announced a statewide health information exchange system that will launch later in the year.

Bullock designated Big Sky Care Connect for the project in 2019. The partnership will allow health care providers to share and have easy access to patient data. Montana is just one of two states in the country that does not currently have a health information exchange system, the Billings Gazette reported.

“By sharing data, providers will be able to ensure that they’re informed about their patients’ status as they seek different services to promote patient safety and outcomes,” Bullock said Thursday.

Big Sky Care Connect says its services can help decrease medication errors, reduce readmission rates and diminish the cost of health care.

Yellowstone County Health Officer John Felton said being able to access relevant information without delay will substantially increase medical response
