Welcome to the 2021 SHIEC Annual Conference!

The theme for this year’s conference is The Role of Health Information Exchange: Innovation in Public Health, Partnerships, and Pandemic Response. Please select the ‘Schedule’ tab for a more detailed outline of speakers and events.
The Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) strives to enable the secure exchange of patient information to improve the quality, coordination, and cost-effectiveness of healthcare locally, regionally and nationally. SHIEC is the largest consortium of its kind in the country, representing 76 HIEs that together cover more than 92% of the United States’ population, as well as associated organizations and strategic business and technology partners. We advocate on behalf of our member organizations to ensure their needs are represented in nationwide conversations about critical healthcare issues.
This virtual platform allows us to bring together key HIE decision makers, government entities, and business partners in a unique event to safely and seamlessly collaborate on the future of health information exchange in the United States and beyond. We look forward to an interactive and engaging Annual Conference, and thank you in advance for joining us!
Vaccine Policy

SHIEC has adopted a  vaccination required policy  for SHIEC21, similar to HIMSS and HLTH’s conferences this year. This means that all attendees, exhibitors, and staff members will need to provide proof of their COVID-19 “full vaccination” to attend to the conference. Anyone who cannot provide verification of their fully vaccinated status is invited to participate in the conference using the virtual attendance option. The hybrid platform was built to ensure a great experience for both in-person and virtual attendees.

We appreciate all the hard work HIEs and their partners have done in the past year, especially in responding to the pandemic, and we remain committed to the health and safety of our members and their communities.

Breakout 2: HIEs as an Integrator, Aggregator, and Convener; A Community Oriented Approach to Addressing Health Related Social Needs.

3

HIEs have traditionally been viewed as a conduit to share healthcare information derived primarily from Electronic Medical Record systems (EMR) and related sources (e.g. labs, imaging). With the national emphasis on population health and wellbeing, HIEs can play leading roles as: aggregator – providing normalized multi-sector data; integrator – of an array of technical capabilities to support of more complete well-coordinated services; convener – working with community stakeholders to improve quality, and effectiveness of data guided services. The Idaho Health Data Exchange (IHDE) has embraced this role providing statewide access to a social needs platform that is linked with patient’s clinical record, and steadily being integrated with the HIEs exchange, aggregation, and analytic services. IHDE has also established a statewide learning collaborative to advance adoption and to strengthen community linkages. IHDE’s leadership will discuss the approach and impact as an example of how HIEs can emerge as leaders of population health initiatives.

Breakout 2: Health Information Exchanges Supporting the PCF Model: From Data Aggregation to Data Activation

3

This discussion will explore how HIEs can support the Primary Care First (PCF) model developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Innovative strategies used by data aggregators will be showcased as part of a larger conversation around how claims and data aggregation has evolved in the context of new payment models. Examples to be covered include the use of encounter notification services in Arkansas for fighting COVID-19, leveraging light-weight gaps-in-care reports in Ohio, and how care coordination for seniors is bolstered in Philadelphia through augmented notifications. These examples will serve as a basis for exploring CMS’ vision of HIE participation in PCF and for eliciting additional ideas for advancing data use.

Introduction from NextGen: Curtis Bailey
The ONC Immunization Data Exchange, Advancement and Sharing (IDEAS) program was established to strengthen and accelerate the use of health information in new ways by advancing the collaboration and increasing data sharing between Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) and Immunization Information Systems (IISs) to help inform public health events, including disasters and pandemics such as COVID-19. In this session, ONC and the program grantee, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) will discuss their planned approach to advance collaboration and increase data sharing between IISs and HIEs with program participants SHIEC, the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA), and the Association of Immunization Managers (AIM).

Breakout 3: Lessons from Texas: How HIEs Can Adopt New Data-Sharing Approaches to Support Public Health in Emergencies

Eric Heflin, CTO/CISO of the Texas Health Services Authority, and Rene Lowe, HIETexas PULSE Engagement Manager at Audacious Inquiry, will discuss how HIEs can support public health by employing modern healthcare IT solutions to solve critical challenges faced by the disaster response community.

HIETexas PULSE, the Patient Unified Lookup System for Emergencies, is a cloud-based, scalable software solution allowing electronic patient data to be viewed by providers in non-routine healthcare settings during disasters and public health crises -- the first health information exchange platform to be built specifically for disaster response.

The Situational Awareness for Novel Epidemic Response Project (SANER) is an initiative, funded by an ONC Cooperative Agreement, designed to demonstrate that HIEs can leverage uniform interoperability standards to better support public health departments and hospitals in satisfying state and federal reporting requirements for the COVID-19 response.

Eric and Rene will offer a live demo of HIETexas PULSE and share how SANER is being piloted in Texas during the pandemic so that other HIEs can leverage these early efforts to provide value to their public health and hospital stakeholders.

The Public Health Data Utility Model for HIE: A Post-Pandemic Statewide Vision

6

Building on the session at SHIEC’s 2020 virtual conference series, we will explore the latest developments in the emerging public health data utility model for HIEs, which envisions nonprofit, statewide/state designated entities with multistakeholder governance models and broad connectivity to healthcare providers. The critical importance of this model was emphasized many times over during the COVID-19 pandemic. These entities may combine claims, clinical, and public health data such as registries, case reports, and other data for the purposes of syndromic surveillance to inform both on the ground care and state and community level public health and health improvement activities. The panelists encompass some of the leading HIEs across the nation, including CRISP (Maryland, DC, West Virginia, and Connecticut), CyncHealth (Nebraska and Iowa), CORHIO-Health Current (Arizona and Colorado), Indiana Health Information Exchange, Manifest MedEx (California), and MiHIN/Velatura (Michigan and Missouri). The session will be moderated by Lisa Bari, SHIEC’s interim CEO.

Sponsored Breakout Session: Public Health Needs Data, Healthy Data

2

The 21st Century Cures Act, The CARES Act, and President Biden’s executive order calling for a data driven response to COVID-19 all help to prioritize and fund data access and exchange for public health. It is not just hope but imperative that this is the point at which faxes and swivel chair interoperability are replaced. Priority and funding are not all that is needed, however. Data interoperability for the 5 use cases of public health -- syndromic surveillance, immunization registries, electronic case reporting, electronic lab reporting, and clinical registries – requires interoperability not just between two systems, but interoperability across many systems to present an accurate representation of an individual in a case report or populations in other use cases. Data must be useful: consistently represented and matched across systems to individuals. Data must be usable: normalized, deduplicated, and accurate. Join us to learn how InterSystems technology meets these needs for interoperable, healthy data in support of public health.

Breakout 2: Health Information Exchanges Supporting the PCF Model: From Data Aggregation to Data Activation

3

This discussion will explore how HIEs can support the Primary Care First (PCF) model developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Innovative strategies used by data aggregators will be showcased as part of a larger conversation around how claims and data aggregation has evolved in the context of new payment models. Examples to be covered include the use of encounter notification services in Arkansas for fighting COVID-19, leveraging light-weight gaps-in-care reports in Ohio, and how care coordination for seniors is bolstered in Philadelphia through augmented notifications. These examples will serve as a basis for exploring CMS’ vision of HIE participation in PCF and for eliciting additional ideas for advancing data use.
