Value Of Health Information Exchange from Payor’s Perspective
Presented on November 6, 2013 to the Office of the National Coordinator for HIT’s “Payor Community of Practice” — a monthly web teleconference broadcast nationwide in which health information exchange leaders across the country learn about and discuss ideas for sustainable and successful health information exchange.
This toolkit is designed to provide leaders of health information organizations1 with a framework and evidence-based support to gain financial participation of payors in health information exchange. It can be used for:
- Building a business case
- Developing strategies aligning payors and providers
- Implementing mechanisms to evaluate results
