Your participation needed on EHR/HIE utilization survey

Posted on: 5/20/15


Under the Oklahoma State Innovation Model (OSIM) grant, the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) and the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality (OFMQ) are conducting a statewide Electronic Health Record (EHR)/Health Information Exchange (HIE) utilization survey. The grant’s purpose is to develop a health care solution that provides better care, reduce health care costs, and improve the health of Oklahoma’s population. In the rapidly evolving health care environment, input from health care stakeholders will be critical as these organizations work to develop Oklahoma-specific tools that will enable our state to successfully transition to new care delivery and payment models. 
 
Information from the survey will be used to produce a detailed analysis of the adoption rate of EHR and connectivity within an HIE system for improved patient care and care coordination. A high response rate will be essential in ensuring that the analysis is accurate and able to provide meaningful information. The target audience for survey participation includes hospitals, physician offices/ambulatory clinics, long-term and post-acute care/nursing homes, and behavioral/mental health facilities. Participating health care facilities do not have to be on an EHR or HIE in order to complete the survey.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Participation is strictly voluntary and survey responses will be kept confidential. The closing date for completion of the survey is May 31, 2015.

Your assistance in obtaining this crucial information will help ensure a positive health system transformation that meets the unique needs of our state.
