Iron Mountain HIMSS 2017 Session to Focus on Importance of Data Quality & Integrity in Value-based Care

Visit Iron Mountain in booth #5453

bston, ma -
Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, will host a February 20th session at the 2017 Healthcare Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference on how hospitals and health systems can enhance the quality and integrity of their data.

As more and more hospitals and health systems continue their shift to value-based care, focusing on improved patient health and wellness instead of the traditional “fee for service delivery” model, data quality and integrity is taking on an increasingly important role. Coupled with new regulations like the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), which seeks to reward those organizations that close the gap between patient health and fee-for-services, hospitals and health systems are challenged to have high quality, accessible data in order to deliver the best possible care and realize those rewards.

Karen Snyder, Iron Mountain’s director of Healthcare & Life Sciences Consulting, will lead attendees in a discussion on the role that data quality and integrity can play in a value-driven healthcare world, including using information governance policies and practices for storing, managing, and accessing information that can reduce operating costs, improve organizational performance and reduce compliance risks.

“Managing health care data quality and integrity” will provide attendees with insights on:

  • Data quality oversight: What are the key elements of a formal oversight program? What standards and policies address error detection and data correction?
  • Data matching errors: Following years of attention, why do many healthcare organizations continue to struggle with false positive and false negative matching errors?
  • Master patient index: How does a data quality oversight program enable a master patient index? A master index is a tool that supports consistent patient records across multiple providers and accurate patient matching when information is exchanged.
