HLN-authored White Paper published by NYeC: The Case for Payer Participation in Health Information Exchange
The New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) recently published a new white paper authored by Dr. Noam Arzt, President of HLN, titled The Case for Payer Participation in Health Information Exchange.
Health information exchanges (HIEs) are collaborative efforts that focus on health data exchange on a community, regional, or statewide basis. HIEs are quite diverse; their services have yet to be fully leveraged by the payer community. HIE is an important tool in improving the quality of patient care and outcomes, increasing accuracy and speed of diagnosis, eliminating unnecessary or duplicative tests and procedures, and reducing healthcare expenditures. Payers who participate in HIEs can experience greater oversight and can be better equipped to manage and coordinate patient care.
