Achieving ACO Data Integration

A primary focus of many healthcare organizations recently has been an increased deployment of health IT solutions. However, with so many data sources existing outside the organization, healthcare organizations, ACOs in particular, have struggled to find an effective solution to integrate these out-of-network data sources into their own system.

With ACOs bringing together potentially hundreds of providers, each with their own internal systems, interoperability within an ACO itself can be a tremendous challenge. When combined with the external data sources on elements such as acute care, ambulatory care, pharmacy care, and others, it becomes clear why enhancements to health IT are a top priority.

In a recent survey of ACOs, 80 percent indicated that data integration, particularly from out-of-network sources, presented the largest challenge they face among their health IT initiatives.  With some ACOs looking to integrate data from 50 or more different external sources, the need to synthesize these many sources of data into a single, cohesive look at population health is great.

Many struggle to reach actionable data in time to make it effective.
