Technology & ACO Sustainability

Sep 30, 2013 · Posted by David K.

I recently developed an article on Technology’s Role in the Pursuit of ACO Sustainability.

ACOs have a basic set of technology needs that must be met if they are to succeed and thrive. These requirements generally center on the ability to enable real-time sharing of clinical and financial data among disparate systems, providers and organizations. Current health IT contributions offer a starting point and address some of these requisites to a degree. For instance, existing hospital information systems, electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchanges (HIEs) possess some of the functionalities necessary to support governance, operations, and clinical goals and objectives.

Yet even with these systems, one critical unmet need still remains for the ACO: technology that seamlessly integrates across boundaries for care coordination, delivery, reporting and payment. Most current technology is designed to record patient care information during an episode of care — not over time — and is limited to each care setting’s organizational boundaries. Check out the article in Imaging Technology News for more.
