Modernizing the HIE Platform
NEHII embarked on a bold effort last year with technology partner InterSystems, updating the HIE core platform. As progress continues with the new platform build, many data-sharing stakeholders have completed the steps required to move feeds and update interfaces. With the target completion date of mid-December for this effort most users will see an updated view of NEHII soon which is an exciting culmination of efforts between stakeholders and the NEHII team. If you have not yet scheduled your migration date, please reach out to email@example.com for further details and to set up a technical call with the IT support team.
NEHII’s modernization effort not only provides you more features and functions, it positions NEHII to achieve a goal of a longitudinal health record for Nebraskans, as well as meet value-based care objectives and various regulatory requirements such as the new event notification Condition of Participation (CoP), and information sharing efforts as outlined in the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule.
Through modernization, our objectives are to:
· Advance interoperability in Nebraska that inform providers more seamlessly;
· Focus on workflow integration of data; and
· Reduce the burden of regulatory requirements by providing services and technology that all entities need for compliance and NEHII can provide as an interoperability partner.
We are committed to be a leading HIE and returning value to our stakeholders and communities we serve. Please contact us with any questions about the technology migration, interoperability rule, meeting event notification CoPs – we’re here to help.
Making Healthier Possible
Although we were unable to gather in person for NEHII's Annual Meeting this year, we are excited to launch an education series called "Making Healthier Possible.” This new webinar series, sponsored by NEHII, is scheduled to begin in November. The purpose of the series is to educate and inform healthcare professionals about how the availability of health information enables a healthier Nebraska and region. Topics to be explored during the seven-session series include the Interoperability final rule, how data is being used to support COVID-19 response efforts, addressing the opioid crisis with the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program and much more. You will receive registration information from us soon. I hope you can join us when your schedule allows.
