Data sharing in healthcare - a snapshot of implementations
License Price: US$ 4,740.00

Introduction

For most countries, a country-wide data interchange for healthcare still seems some time away. Can it be achieved without having established a consistent data interchange in place on a local basis? Is the actual level of connection between medical care-givers in a region an indication of how quickly a nationwide data exchange can take place?

Features and benefits
  • Insights on healthcare CIOs' investment priorities for 2010/2011 based on Ovum research
  • Examples of medical data interchanges on a nationwide basis (NL, Sweden) and of governments' provisions that require exchange of data (UK, Germany)
Highlights

Given the large number of competing IT solutions on the market, the need to share data seems daunting and at the same time more necessary than ever. Ovum thinks that it takes a certain level of maturity in the use of healthcare IT before electronic health record (EHR) systems will be deployed on a country-wide base.

Your key questions answered
  • To improve patient welfare, patient information needs to be pulled together from multiple sources
  • Readiness to engage in large-scale, nationwide data exchanges programs depends on overall level of healthcare IT deployment
