Comparing NC and NL situationNorth Carolina Netherlands• Government actively supporting HIEs • Government in doubt how to support• Patiënt consent: opt-in needed (for regional and national HIE sharing, not collecting) • Patiënt consent: opt-in needed (for both• Healthcare data also used for analysis collecting and sharing) on population level • Healthcare data only used on patiënt• Based on international standards (CCD level / HL7) • Based on international standards (CCD• Almost 10 million inhabitants, 3,5 times / HL7) the area of NL.
Prerequisites for successful implementation• Changing the way of working of a multitude of organizations and persons, is a tough job.• Drivers for change are both quantitative and qualitative – Higher quality of care and lower cost (or more income)• Even if both are the projected outcome of a network-project, a couple of objectives must be met to become successful: – The will to exchange the patients data – and be serious about it – A compelling business case for the total value chain – A fair business model promoting the use for each of the participant in the network – An HIE system that is integrated with the current IS of the caregivers • Individual healthcare providers have little influence on development roadmap of ISVs
