HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ at NACCHO Annual 2017

July 13, 2017 @ 9:15 am - 10:45 am

This year’s NACCHO Annual Conference includes a “Health Information & Technology” track to explore how local health departments are acquiring, storing, retrieving, and using healthcare information to foster better collaboration with public health and health delivery systems to improve the health of our nation. As part of this track, the conference will feature the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™, a series of sessions focused on electronic case reporting (eCR) at the local level.

Clinical case reporting of certain infectious and non-infectious conditions (reportable conditions) to public health agencies (PHAs) is currently a predominantly manual process. Varying state, local, and territorial regulations along with other factors across the country have created a complex array of requirements that make it difficult for providers to know when, where, and how to report. To address these circumstances that present barriers to sharing timelier, more complete, and more accurate data between healthcare providers and PHAs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is supporting a nationwide approach to standardize, simplify, and automate case reporting in a manner that achieves bidirectional information flow between clinical care and public health.

To learn more about this particular issue, join us on July 13 at 9:15am for “Interoperability in Action: Improving Electronic Information Exchange between Health Care and Public Health,”  an educational session that will describe technical architecture that stakeholders have established for electronic case reporting (eCR).
