Quality management and the data that it relies on are more important than ever. Recent regulations promoting interoperability, as well as technological innovations that enable clinical data exchange, have the potential to profoundly impact quality measurement, surveillance and reporting. Market pressures such as interoperability mandates, the shift to value-based arrangements, data democratization and a patient-centered focus have conspired to create inflection points in quality reporting and clinical data management. Management of data quality is critical in the setting of increased clinical data availability and requirements to promote maturity and operationalize data effectively. The capabilities being introduced with interoperability create significant opportunities to disrupt historical workflows by utilizing clinical data to support best practices in clinical decision support, disease management and patient-centered care. The age of interoperability has begun, and clinical data collection, validation, storage and use are critical for operational success in this new paradigm.
Advent Advisory Group and CitiusTech have come together to discuss some key drivers for this evolution, best practices in data collection and validation and opportunities to leverage clinical data for quality improvement in this white paper. Please read it and share your comments and observations in the Community Forum to keep the dialogue moving. https://www.adventadvisorygroup.com/news
