Diameter Health Clients HSX and KHIN Featured in Healthcare Informatics Article
Healthshare Exchange (HSX) and Kansas Health Information Network (KHIN) recognized for collaborations with health plans
Diameter Health clients HSX and KHIN are featured in a Healthcare Informatics article examining HIEs collaborating with health plans to improve the quality of patient care. Diameter Health’s Fusion clinical data quality platform is used by both HIEs to prepare standardized, normalized and enriched substrate data for analytic initiatives such as these.
AmeriHealth Caritas works with HSX to use a data-driven approach to improve medication reconciliation among high-risk plan members. “We’ve received more than 16,000 CCDs through the HIE for this target, high-risk population for medication reconciliation, said Andrea Gelzer, M.D., SVP and corporate chief medical officer, AmeriHealth Caritas. “The volume is good, and the veracity of data appears to be good as well.”
Dirk Rittenhouse, director of clinical data acquisition and analytics at Anthem, says the health plan works with a number of HIE organizations, including Kansas Health Information Network (KHIN). “We’re committed to the digitization of medical records and we expect, as a byproduct, to be able to leverage that semantic interoperability for analytics. We’re in this in a big way; HIEs have a lot of potential.”
