Every medical provider believes in patient safety, but medical errors are still one of the leading causes of death in the US. Many of these errors result from providers simply not having the information they need at the point of care.
To combat this issue, government agencies and health organizations are:
- Compiling and sharing vast patient data sources including EHRs, prescription data, insurance claims, lab results, etc.
- Implementing interoperability rules and compliance timelines across local, state and federal programs
- Breaking down system-wide data silos to better serve patients, make health care providers more efficient and reduce overall costs
