Our annual South Carolina Health IT Day reluctantly has been changed to VIRTUAL due to the current COVID-19 surge. The great Health IT Agenda that we planned has NOT changed, however. So please register and join us online for an informative session on health information sharing and statewide health information exchange.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed some of the many weaknesses in our ability to share health information to better serve the health needs of South Carolina residents. We are collaborating with the South Carolina Health Information Management Association (SCHIMA) and the South Carolina Hospital Association in support of the creation of a taskforce of dedicated stakeholders to develop and oversee implementation of a statewide health information exchange (HIE) plan. A statewide HIE strategy is important to patient care and efficient cooperation among healthcare providers.
This year’s Health IT Day provides a great opportunity to learn more about the status of health information exchange in South Carolina, current priorities, and future directions. You will also learn more about the national status of health information exchange and the multiple national efforts to advance both state level and national level capabilities for sharing health information.
Our State legislators have supported this effort by establishing a Health Information Exchange Strategy Development Committee that is scheduled to report back to the Governor and legislature by November 15, 2021. Health IT Day will provide an opportunity to learn more about this initiative and to make your voice heard on this important issue.
Please register today, and join us for an informative session on a topic of tremendous importance to advancing healthcare improvements in South Carolina.
