Pre-hospital data exchange in the trenches
Learn how health information exchange is improving patient outcomes, increasing organizational efficiencies and recovering revenue as possible in the Pinnacle Webinar Series
Dr. Michael Dailey; Michelle Kobayashi, RN, BSN, MSN, MBA; and Mario Sanchez presented “Pre-Hospital Data Exchange in the Trenches,” a webinar sponsored by ZOLL Data Systems and Fitch & Associates, on Tuesday, June 16. Watch an archived version here.
The EMS industry is experiencing a period of profound change and opportunity. COVID-19 has created new pressure to improve operational efficiency and accelerate the revenue cycle. At the same time, ET3 offers the promise of new revenue streams and value to the communities you serve.
In this complex environment, health information exchange (HIE) between partners is becoming essential for improving patient outcomes, increasing organizational efficiencies and recovering as much revenue as possible. But the old way of doing things – paper, fax, phone calls – doesn’t provide the speed or data integrity necessary for true interoperability and collaboration.
Dr. Michael Dailey and Michelle Kobayashi, RN, BSN, MSN, MBA; will present “Pre-Hospital Data Exchange in the Trenches,” a webinar sponsored by ZOLL Data Systems and Fitch & Associates, on Tuesday, June 16, at 1 p.m. CDT. The webinar, moderated by Mario Sanchez, will share insights from Dr. Dailey and Kobayashi into how they have embraced the challenge of pre-hospital data exchange and are reaping the benefits.
