Burwood Group publishes whitepaper, Policy Direction Overrides Technology in Setting Stage for HIE as result of the Southern California HIE Forum on January 20, 2011. Burwood Group and Cisco Systems jointly sponsored a round-table format that encouraged more than 60 prominent representatives of the California healthcare community to deliver their strategic perspectives of the challenges they face and to discuss tactics for putting those strategies into practice. This paper provides a synthesis of the conversation among stakeholders and experts in electronic health records and information-sharing topics at the forum.
According to this whitepaper, federal grant programs for HIE specifically and health information technology (IT) generally, are infusing the health field with funding to help healthcare providers and health information organizations make headway in adopting health IT and organizing for HIE. But along with the funding comes a variety of requirements to enable such technology to accomplish a set of objectives within challenging timeframes during the next several years. The following fundamental questions will be answered in the contents of the whitepaper:
- Where should we start?
- What concerns or problems are preventing progress?
- What barriers are in the way of envisioning and executing HIE plans with good prospects of acceptance and success?
