At Datavant, we’ve set out to securely move the world’s most precious data – patient health data – to where it needs to be. Through our digitized network, modern technology tools and complementary services, we enable a better patient experience, better decision making by providers, and improved operating efficiencies for healthcare executives.
In this blog post, we step back to paint a picture of why secure health data exchange matters, and Datavant’s evolving role in light of recently strengthening our digital Release of Information (ROI) network and technology offerings, as well as our expanded impact outside of ROI, including into supporting value-based care organizations.
Moving health data with the proper authorization and driving meaningful action from that data remains much more burdensome, complicated and costly than it needs to be today. When patient health data can instead be securely accessed, released and connected to additional data seamlessly:
This benefits the entire U.S. healthcare ecosystem for the better, closing millions of care gaps and helping us to more rapidly improve the quality and lower the cost of care.
Our Release of Information (ROI) offerings ensure the right health information is moved outside of provider organizations to the right requesters at the right time. We have been committed to partnering with providers to securely share patient data outside of their organizations for 40+ years, enabling the exchange of more than 60 million patient records per year.
Our digital ROI network has now reached more than 70,000 U.S. hospitals and clinics, with new capabilities enabling providers to leverage digital fulfillment regardless of which EHR they use. Where digital connectivity is deployed, providers benefit from:
To complement digital ROI, providers continue to leverage our ROI and professional staffing services to minimize the time and cost challenges of manual workflows elsewhere in the data exchange process. These services deploy best practices for compliance and efficient operating procedures, based on learnings from thousands of provider environments.
Our ROI offerings are available at no cost to providers, and can open opportunities for future financial benefit. These offerings complement your investments in EHRs to extend and accelerate the expected operational and financial gains.
Datavant also partners with Finance and Revenue Cycle Management professionals to drive faster, more accurate payments and remove administrative waste through our coding and denials services and technology tools.
Providers intake a large influx of disparate requests for patient data every day. These requests come from a diverse set of requesters and through many forums – including mail, fax, calls, walk-ins, emails, and EMRs or other web-based portals. This is administratively burdensome, creates friction with requesters and distracts from providing patient care, especially during high-volume periods such as Medicare Risk Adjustment seasons.
At Datavant, we have built a variety of technology tools to help healthcare organizations manage these different requests, including:
In addition to streamlining workflows for healthcare organizations, these tools greatly improve the experience for requesters.
As our healthcare system shifts into value-based care models, access to complete, high-quality medical information is necessary. Accountable Care Organizations and Managed Service Organizations need to access patient health data from the hundreds of hospitals, practices and clinics they work with. Traditional providers engaging in risk-bearing strategies have increasingly become requesters of patient health data. These value-based care organizations seek to advance their data strategies, better understand their patient populations, close care gaps and improve risk management.
To meet these evolving needs, Datavant’s offerings have extended into this space:
These capabilities ultimately enable a healthcare organization’s ability to close care gaps, improve the quality of patient care and lower the cost of care. By pairing these capabilities with more efficient Release of Information, we’ve seen leading ACOs and MSOs unlock new efficiencies and value for their organizations.
Securely moving precious patient health data improves clinical decision making and patient experience. Datavant’s digitized network, modern technology tools and complementary services enable providers to achieve this without sacrificing operating efficiencies or costs. Contact us to learn more.
