This Week in Health IT

August 7, 2020: Aneesh Chopra, First CTO for the US elaborates on 21st Century Cures. How should CIO’s prepare? How do we scale an interoperability strategy that is built on the patient's right of access? Our industry finally has a chance to self organize and standardize data elements for sharing. Why have the banking, education and energy industries beaten us to the punch? How do we approach intellectual property issues? We also look at payment reform and value based care.Key Points:Data sharing policies for COVID lab reporting [00:12:36] Interoperability in support of the patient equals better health outcomes, better health and a better community. [00:13:21]One doctor who’s had an electronic record for 30 years can’t even give a list of patients who smoke because it was not a structured field in the EHR! [00:19:19] Why has healthcare, 10 years after the initial data set was published, not added a single data element beyond the minimum required in the open source domain? [00:21:33]How dangerous is a compliance mindset? [00:27:47] 21st Century Cures [00:28:05] Information blocking [00:32:16]Intellectual property issues [00:33:33]Apple Health [00:41:17]

Tuning Healthcare, Powered by Lumeris

In this episode of Tuning Healthcare, Aneesh Chopra discusses how the lack of data transparency and interoperability has crippled the ability for the U.S. to respond to the COVID-19 public health crisis. Aneesh is the President and Cofounder of CareJourney, a data and analytics company focused on the move to value-based care, and was also the former first Chief Technology Officer of the United States, serving under President Obama from 2009 to 2012. He also discusses how the move to value-based care may accelerate as a result of this crisis, and how revitalizing our nation’s healthcare IT infrastructure could speed up improvements for providers, payers and consumers. “We may emerge with a different cost structure in the healthcare delivery system, that's more asset light. That may be disruptive to organizations that generate the big institutional revenue, but we're going to work our way through that change. That would have come anyway through value-based care, but this will just accelerate. And then you'd ask the question, "If I can treat this group of patients at home, in a much lower cost setting, with this remote monitoring, with physicians checking in at this time period and we get similar or better outcomes, remind me again why we're not doing that today?"– Aneesh Chopra, President of CareJourney and former Chief Technology Officer of the United StatesIn this episode, Aneesh and Lumeris Senior Vice President Nigel Ohrenstein discuss: • The lack of data transparency and interoperability in healthcare and its impact during the COVID-19 crisis• How the move to value-based care may accelerate in the post-pandemic era• What the new normal of healthcare could look like from a care delivery and infrastructure standpoint• What a fully informed provider and patient experience could look like • How data transparency and consumer apps can help speed up interoperabilityCited works:• Text Message Alert 1 Sound.

Aneesh Chopra is one of the foremost names in healthcare IT today. He was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve as the United States’ first Chief Technology Officer. After his three years as CTO, President Obama hailed his service, saying Chopra’s “legacy of leadership and innovation will benefit Americans for years to come.” In the years since he served as the nation’s CTO, Chopra has worked tirelessly to promote a better and more efficient healthcare system. Aneesh was one of the four industry leaders that convened the CARIN Alliance in 2016, a bipartisan, multi-sector collaborative working to advance the consumer-directed exchange of health information. He was also part of the founding group that started the Argonaut Project, an effort designed to accelerate the development and adoption of HL7’s Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard. Chopra authored a book, “Innovative State: How New Technologies can Transform Government.” Currently, Aneesh is president of CareJourney, a healthcare analytics company based in Arlington, Virginia. Aneesh Chopra and Niko Skievaski covered many important issues in this engaging conversation.

This new interop paradigm will be accomplished sooner if private and public forces work collaboratively in the interest of a better system for all Americans.Our thanks to Aneesh Chopra for joining us on The Redox Podcast.
