HEALTHeLINK has a long history of positive collaboration with the community and is continually working to optimize the content and performance of our system and develop additional services to support the efforts of the local ACOs, PPSs, MCOs, IPAs and other organizations who have population health and quality improvement initiatives in place. Ensuring that our participating physicians and providers have their patients' most accurate clinical information at the time of the office visit or encounter is essential to providing high quality, safe and cost effective care while meeting the requirements set forth by these organizations.
We have been asked by our community partners to work collaboratively with practices to improve the quality of data we receive. Later this year we will make available a "scorecard" which will contain information about the types and quality of the data your practice is providing to HEALTHeLINK. Knowledge of where data gaps and data quality issues exist is the key to ensuring that all necessary patient information, both clinical and non-clinical, is available in the exchange. Should you have any questions about this initiative, please contact your HEALTHeLINK account manager directly, or by calling 716-206-0993 x105.
