June 20, 2017 – Vermont Healthcare Providers, Health Plans and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) to Benefit from Higher Quality Data and Advanced Analytics Capabilities
Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today a partnership with Vermont Information Technology Leaders (VITL) to advance health information exchange and accountable care reporting for the state.
Under the partnership, VITL implemented Wolters Kluwer’s Health Language Platform, a suite of terminology and data management solutions, to enhance its core interoperability systems and expand its capabilities to support ACOs, patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs), health plans and healthcare providers with medication reconciliation, data analytics, quality reporting and population health management.
“Data quality is crucial to our ACO, OneCare Vermont, and our Blueprint for Health patient-centered medical home,” said Michael Gagnon, Chief Technology Officer at VITL. “The Health Language Platform plays a major part in helping us normalize specific quality measures for these customers.”
“We are delighted to be supporting advanced interoperability and quality reporting initiatives for VITL and its stakeholders,” said Dan Buell, General Manager of Health Language at Wolters Kluwer Clinical Software Solutions. “Hundreds of thousands of people are benefitting from improved patient care and population health advancements as a result of VITL and its health information management capabilities. It’s exciting and rewarding to be contributing to such an important initiative at the leading edge of healthcare transformation.”
The Health Language Platform provides the data management infrastructure needed to establish a single source of truth, enable interoperability and optimize analytics for regulatory and value-based programs. The platform is a comprehensive solution for synthesizing and managing big data across the healthcare continuum, enabling accurate analytics and reporting. It also helps healthcare organizations enhance investments made in data warehouses, analytics software and population health management tools by standardizing and normalizing clinical, claims and administrative data across disparate systems. Additionally, the platform helps healthcare organizations manage data governance and centralize healthcare terminologies such as standard code sets used for clinical, billing and administrative documentation and reporting.
