Inside Health Care #62 – Tavia Rauch on Using Data Exchanges to Improve HEDIS Testing
September 8, 2021 · David J. Smolar
In this episode of “Inside Health Care,” we hear from a member of the Digital Measurement Community, Tavia Rauch, head of clinical informatics with the New York e-Health Collaborative. Before that, she spent nearly five years in charge of population health and data quality for non-profit Hixny, a health information exchange connecting individuals, providers, and organizations across eastern New York state.
NCQA partnered with the New York State Department of Health to explore possibilities in using health information exchange data to calculate health quality measures. Tavia talked back in December of 2020 about how her organization is able to gauge the success of health information that’s shared between clinical institutions and how providers can glean more accurate metrics from their exchanges to use for NCQA testing products.
