Connect and Share

Connectivity and cost-savings go hand in hand

Shifting to a secure, electronic, interoperable health information system — one that eliminates delay, highlights patient needs and encourages collaborative, patient-centered care — holds the potential to boost efficiency and quality across the entire continuum of care.

Are your systems ready to take on ICD-10, HIPAA 5010, HIE connectivity and value-based purchasing driven by clinical performance measures? Connectivity and cost-savings go hand in hand, and building a connected system is the second foundational element toward achieving population health.

New solutions are needed to identify and manage the variables impacting outcomes, as reimbursement is increasingly tied to clinical performance measures. From strategy definition, through implementation and long-term client support, we've worked with many of the nation's leading hospitals on the connectivity required to deliver against population health initiatives.
