In previous articles, we have argued that disorganized systems within the hospital networks have kept caregivers from accessing and using critical patient data effectively. In this final installment of our three-part series on interoperability, we’re addressing current challenges from the perspective of the healthcare payer (i.e. Insurers, including Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), commercial insurance, employer plans, and third party administrators). We’ll take a closer look at how this current lack of interoperability impacts payers, and then we’ll discuss how connected and integrated medical data can provide better coverage for patients while helping to lower the overall cost of care for all involved.
