The Evolution of How Provider Organizations Share Data with Payers

It’s reasonable for a company like MRO to have a chief interoperability officer. According to their chief interoperability officer, Anthony Murray, the company has spent 22 years building tools to “exchange data seamlessly” in healthcare.  This includes much of the healthcare data that’s been locked up in free text data in many healthcare systems.

In our interview with Murray below, he shares some of the main challenges that healthcare has with achieving interoperability in today’s environment. This includes an important focus area of MRO to be able to share data between providers and payers. Murray shares some of the solutions MRO has put in place to navigate around these challenges. Plus, he shares how healthcare standards are impacting these efforts. Murray says, standardization is improving.

As we move away from sharing whole charts to the modern FHIR API, organizations can extract particular elements needed by the person requesting data. Through such efficiencies, they reduce the burden on providers while letting payers build up longitudinal records on patients. MRO also promotes the two-way exchange of data and quality assurance checks.

Watch the video for Murray’s insights on interoperability and some of the keys to success when sharing data between providers and payers.
