Succeeding in the complex business of healthcare requires embracing healthcare delivery transformation. Healthcare delivery transformation describes the healthcare industry's response to the disruptive effects of the transition from fee-for-service healthcare to a new pay-for-value model.
The litany of new initiatives that are driving healthcare transformation offer a variety of payment models. All require sharing of clinical data across the care continuum, including patients and their care teams.
Health data exchange is no longer optional:
While many data exchange techniques are available in the market, this paper focuses on a few approaches that are readily available, economical to implement and are supported by HHS/CMS/ONC via incentive payment programs. These include secure email / email encryption, Direct Messaging and open APIs like FHIR.
