BALTIMORE, September 15, 2015 – Fresh off a road trip to attend the NCHICA Annual Meeting and Health IT Transformation Awards, the Ai team is headed West on September 27-29th for the HUG/NATE/SHIEC 2015 Annual Meeting in Park City, Utah.

Try saying ‘HUG’ ‘NATE’ ‘SHIEC’ three times fast to your colleagues, and see if they can guess the acronyms!

Ai is excited to attend this annual meeting of HIE leaders and stakeholders, and to join in discussions about strategic and business issues impacting member HIEs. Some of the keynote presentations and panel speakers are focused on topics aligned with the Ai vision for smarter, connected healthcare and our ENS® solution: To play a key role in the modernization of healthcare and clinical data exchange, and develop and implement industry-leading HIE platforms and health IT solutions. The results of Ai’s work are also reflected in enabling HIEs to conduct population health-focused analyses and public reporting that have wide ranging utility in meaningful use, patient outcomes, claims and utilization analysis for payer-based, Medicare, Medicaid, and other reporting purposes.

Our Ai team members look forward to talking with like-minded colleagues who are on the forefront of enabling better care coordination, interoperability, and connected healthcare. We share the perspectives of regional, statewide, and community HIEs. Further, Ai and its health information systems teams have had “boots on the ground” for several years now. Since 2008 our teams have been collaborating with HIOs on health exchange systems design, implementations, master patient and provider index (MDM), and clinical notification platforms that often serve as part of the backbone of HIE infrastructures.

If you or your organization will be attending the HUG/NATE/SHIEC conference, we welcome you to visit the Ai exhibit area. We are vested in our HIE customers initiatives to transform care transitions and care coordination for members. Trust mechanisms, HIE methodologies and tools, and health IT standards for exchanges are also top of mind.

The ongoing progress in the ecosystem of information technology and policy leaders working on behalf of HIE and trusted exchange stakeholders continues to yield innovative approaches for patients, hospitals and health systems, payers, and providers. We hope to see you there, and will be tweeting via @A_INQ using hashtags #HIE #HealthIT #PopHealth #Interop
