I’m studying for my Communications class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
After reviewing the case study document and assigned reading for this module, address the following as if you were the health information manager:
Facilities are required to report certain measures to Medicare under the Promoting Interoperability Program. Complete an analysis of the HIE models that would be applicable to the Manchester Health Access Network (MHAN), and recommend strategies for how this facility can ensure it will meet the Promoting Interoperability Program standards.
Your analysis should include the following:
- Compare different types of models (centralized, decentralized/federated, hybrid) and exchanges (directed, query-based, or consumer-mediated) that would be applicable to MHAN’s network. In your comparison, consider elements such as the differentiation of the cost, quality/efficiency, time to implement, and security of each model and exchange.
- Justify the type of model and exchange that you would choose for MHAN. Defend your decision based on evidence found in your comparison of models and explain why this would be the best model for your network.
- Recommend strategies for how this facility can ensure it will meet the Promoting Interoperability Program standards using the chosen model and exchange.
