HIEs: Moving Beyond Interoperability to Indispensability

Laura Adams, president and CEO, Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI)
Monday, 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM, InterSystems Booth 1561
Now that many health informtion exchanges (HIE) have overcome the challenges of data sharing, we can our turn attention to leveraging this powerful community asset toward a much broader vision of value. Learn how RIQI is moving into new areas of HIE value creation. HIEs that share and predict data are now positioned to:

-Enable far more robust predictive modeling and analytics services
-Deliver “detect and notify” services that sift the data in real time and serve up only the most clinically relevant information inside workflows
-Support bioinformatics research and critical public health priorities,such as intervening in the U.S. opioid crisis

Laura Adams has delivered conference keynotes in nearly every state and in 12 different countries. Currently president and CEO of RIQI, she is also Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s appointment to the Oversight Council for the MA Center for Health Information and Analysis. The coauthor of several peer-reviewed articles on healthcare and health informatics, Adams has received citations from the Rhode Island congressional delegation for her visionary leadership and contributions to improving the state’s healthcare system.
