According to the report, in 2019, seven in 10 hospitals reported encountering one or more challenges in their electronic reporting to public health agencies, the most common of which were issues with a lack of capacity to electronically exchange information and interface-related issues. Furthermore, for 2018 and 2019, half of all hospitals reported a lack of capacity for electronic data exchange with public health agencies, with different vocabulary standards emerging as a significant additional concern. ONC said such issues were particularly evident among small, rural, independent, and critical access hospitals. ONC for this report relied on data culled from the information technology supplement to AHA’s Annual Survey, the collection of which the agency helped fund.&nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="field_topics"> <div><a href="/topics/hospital-data" class="topic" hreflang="en">Hospital Data</a></div> </div> <div class="field_type">Headline</div> Wed, 08 Sep 2021 18:19:23 +0000 tjordan_drupal 679374 at https://www.aha.org GAO examines HHS efforts to collect hospital capacity data during pandemic https://www.aha.org/news/headline/2021-08-06-gao-examines-hhs-efforts-collect-hospital-capacity-data-during-pandemic <span class="title">GAO examines HHS efforts to collect hospital capacity data during pandemic</span> <span class="uid"><span>tjordan_drupal</span></span> <span class="created">Aug 6, 2021</span> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/900x400/public/2020-02/HHS%20Logo.jpg?itok=3-5a7koj" width="900" height="400" alt="HHS Logo web sized 900x400" /> </div> </article> </div> <div class="body"><p>The Department of Health and Human Services should better engage and communicate with stakeholders to improve the HHS Protect data system and how it collects hospital capacity data during a public health emergency, according to a <a href="https://www.gao.gov/products/gao-21-600">report</a> released yesterday by the Government Accountability Office.</p> <p>“For example, HHS officials told GAO that there is a need for dialogue and external validation to ensure data quality and accuracy,” GAO said. “They also noted that the need for a system like HHS Protect will continue beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Officials GAO interviewed from stakeholder organizations and selected states noted that increased collaboration and communication — as well as more time to implement changes — would have facilitated the implementation of the changes to the data collection process. These lessons learned are consistent with GAO's January 2021 recommendation that HHS engage with stakeholders to review and inform the alignment of ongoing data collection and reporting standards through establishing an expert committee. HHS agreed with the recommendation, but as of June 2021, the department has not implemented it.”<br /> &nbsp;</p> </div> <div class="field_topics"> <div><a href="/topics/hospital-data" class="topic" hreflang="en">Hospital Data</a></div> </div> <div class="field_type">Headline</div> Fri, 06 Aug 2021 13:07:53 +0000 tjordan_drupal 678904 at https://www.aha.org Data Pools Get Deeper as AWS, Truveta Help Health Care Mine Insights https://www.aha.org/aha-center-health-innovation-market-scan/2021-07-27-data-pools-get-deeper-aws-truveta-help-health <span class="title">Data Pools Get Deeper as AWS, Truveta Help Health Care Mine Insights</span> <span class="uid"><span>Matthew Diener</span></span> <span class="created">Jul 27, 2021 - 08:42 AM</span> <div class="body"><div class="container"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-md-8"> <p><img alt="Data Pools Get Deeper as AWS, Truveta Help Health Care Mine Insights.

Now the race is on to scale data from across many organizations to achieve this goal and to make it easier to search and analyze.</p> <p>Of course, no one is certain precisely what this transformation will look like nor how significant the generated results may be, but activity has been heating up in this sector.</p> <p>Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently made its cloud-based health care data lake, <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2021/07/amazon-healthlake-generally-available/" target="_blank">AWS HealthLake</a>, available to customers. The solution enables providers, payers and pharmaceutical companies to securely store, transform, query and analyze health data at scale in a single repository.</p> <p>The solution offers a series of connectors that automatically import records from widely used health care applications. Once the data are gathered, algorithms, based on natural language processing, organize the data and make it easier to use, AWS states.</p> <p>Amazon HealthLake also makes it possible to move the combined patient data to other systems for further processing. For this purpose, the data are stored in the industry-standard FHIR (fast healthcare operability resources). The moving process takes place with a separate application programming device that AWS provides in its Amazon product.</p> <h2>Truveta Gets a Boost</h2> <p>Eleswhere, Truveta, the Seattle-based for-profit company launched in February, is rapidly taking shape. It aims to analyze de-identified health data to improve clinical decision-making and help researchers find cures faster.</p> <p>Truveta received a financial boost recently when it closed a <a href="https://truveta.com/newsroom/truveta-grows-to-more-than-15-of-us-patient-care" target="_blank">$95 million Series A funding round</a> and expanded the number of its health system owners from 14 to 17 with the addition of Dallas-based Baylor Scott &amp; White Health, MedStar Health (Columbia, Md.) and Texas Health Resources in Arlington.</p> <p>Truveta, which means truth plus knowledge, and its members represent more than 15% of all care delivered in the U.S. The company plans to use the $95 million to recruit more staff and build the infrastructure and cloud computing resources needed to support clinical data.</p> <p>The new partners will add to the diversity of Truveta’s dataset, bringing in greater Black and Hispanic populations, which will help generate findings that represent a broader sampling across the country.</p> <p>These deeper and more diverse data sets will help not only provider organizations, but also Truveta’s biotech, pharmacy and research customers, answer such key questions as which treatments are more effective, which population groups are most at risk and why.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-07/ms_072721_item1_AWS_Truvetta_620_1969728.jpg" width="620" height="381" alt="Data Pools Get Deeper as AWS, Truveta Help Health Care Mine Insights.

Digital twins use technologies like the internet of things, data streaming, 5G, etc., to gather, visualize and contextualize data from across physical assets, bridging operations and digital capabilities, and opening new partnership opportunities.</p> <h2>Creating Intelligent Digital Twins</h2> <p>On the clinical side, digital twins can model future scenarios, such as surgical simulations, or help with medical education, research and care delivery. Also, they can help to improve business operations through modeling digital representations of facilities and workers while tracking and tracing supplies to match supply and demand.</p> <p><img alt="66% of health care executives expect their investment in intelligent digital twins to increase over the next three years.

Digital twins that mimic the heart, for example, can allow clinicians and machines to work together to pre-simulate optimal therapies and avoid unnecessary interventions. On the operational side, advanced technologies can optimize scheduling, identify workflow bottlenecks or help predict which types of patients will enter a facility on a given day.</p> <p>Soon organizations that build intelligent twins will be able to interact and collaborate within mirror environments and be able to share designs, information and insights easily across ecosystems and to virtually test innovations in ways not previously possible.</p> <p>Some organizations already are pursuing twin-enabled visibility with select partners. Oklahoma State University and Ansys, a simulation software developer, have explored using digital twins to more precisely target tumors. By experimenting with digital versions of human lungs and various factors, they found a delivery method that may let physicians increase the accuracy of drug delivery to 90% vs. 20%, common for conventional aerosol methods.</p> <p>This capability won’t come cheaply or easily. Organizations will need a strong and comprehensive data foundation to access insights. At this stage, however, few have invested to ensure that data are generated, captured, managed and reused consistently at scale, Accenture officials note. But for those with the proper discipline, resources and partners going forward, the payoffs could be huge.</p> <h2>3 Ways to Prepare for Health Care’s Mirrored Future</h2> <h3>Audit Data Practices</h3> <p>Evaluate the tools and technologies you use and deconstruct data silos. Digital simulation tools need a healthy data supply to be effective, so look for ways to capture data from the internet of things and build streaming analytics capabilities.</p> <h3>Explore How Digital Twins Can Transform Innovation Processes</h3> <p>Develop key clinical and operational use cases so that digital twins can generate the greatest impact to drive innovation and breakthroughs.</p> <h3>Engage Partners</h3> <p>Design digital twins from the outset with the intent to share them across the ecosystem. Make application-program interfacing a priority and build a short list of potential digital twin-driven partnerships.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-07/ms_071321_item1_Accenture_620%5B1%5D_1959817.jpg" width="620" height="381" alt="Digital Transformation’s Next Wave: Creating a Mirrored World.

Ochsner, which began offering RPM services to the communities it serves in 2015, has scaled the platform and now monitors more than 20,000 people in health plans across the country.</p> <p>Ochsner’s strategy is to use the platform to supplement the work of primary care physicians and specialists, collecting data through connected health devices, with data automatically fed into the Epic electronic health records platform. Health and wellness coaching services are added to personalize each patient’s care journey. Providers — often pharmacists — help with medication management to provide an added layer of patient support.</p> <p>The move is significant because RPM is a key component of high-value care delivery that meets people where they are, which is increasingly beyond the walls of hospitals or doctors’ offices. It will also help Ochsner diversify its revenue streams.</p> <p>Julie Henry, Ochsner’s chief operating officer for the system’s digital medicine department, says the program includes management, clinicians, tech support staff, coders and programmers, billing and legal experts who work together to ensure that each program targets the right patients using the proper parameters.</p> <p>The platform, which generated triple-digit growth even before the pandemic, has delivered positive financial results for diabetes and hypertension management, and Ochsner is creating algorithms that would clarify growth opportunities for other conditions. The health system also has been working to demonstrate the RPM program’s value among those with chronic conditions who struggle to pay for their care.</p> <p>Last year, Ochsner partnered with Louisiana’s Medicaid program to subsidize an RPM pilot in select communities. The goal is to use the data gleaned from the pilot to show the state that it should be investing in this type of service.</p> </div> <div class="col-md-4"> <p style="margin-top:30px;"><a href="/center" title="Visit the AHA Center for Health Innovation landing page."><img alt="AHA Center for Health Innovation logo" data-entity-="" data-entity-uuid="7ade6b12-de98-4d0b-965f-a7c99d9463c5" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/logo-aha-innovation-center-color-sm.jpg" style="max-width: 80%;" type="file" class="align-center" /></a></p> <a href="/center/form/innovation-subscription"><img alt="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" src="/sites/default/files/2019-04/Market_Scan_Call_Out_360x300.png" /></a></div> </div> </div> <style type="text/css"> <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ <!--/*--><![CDATA[/* ><!--*/ .field_featured_image { position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } .featured-image{ position: absolute; overflow: hidden; clip: rect(0 0 0 0); height: 1px; width: 1px; margin: -1px; padding: 0; border: 0; } /*--><!]]]]><![CDATA[>*/ /*--><!]]>*/ </style></div> <div class="field_media_featured_image"><article> <div class="field_media_image"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-07/ms_071321_item2_Ochsner_190%5B1%5D_1959816.jpg" width="190" height="127" alt="Ochsner Revs Up National Remote Patient Monitoring Plan.
