Government continues its push for interoperability in health IT. Yet barriers prevent routine exchange of critical information during transitions in care. A major reason for the low level of interoperability is the expense of connecting different electronic health record systems (EHRs). The HITECH Act partially addresses the issue by offering incentives for doctors and hospitals to adopt EHRs. It does not offer similar incentives to long-term and post-acute providers, though effective exchange of information plays a crucial role when patients transition between care settings. How can home care and hospice surmount this and other roadblocks? Join the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT) to learn how your agency can connect better to enhance patient care.
