Diameter Health and Indiana Health Information Exchange Continue Collaboration Following Successful Pilot

Nationally Leading HIE Improves Clinical
Data Quality with HIT Company’s Normalization and Enrichment Platform

Farmington, CT—July  25, 2018—Diameter Health, a leading enabler of clinical insight through the cleansing, de-duplication
and enrichment of clinical data across the care continuum,
has announced that Indiana
Health Information Exchange
(IHIE), the health information exchange
(HIE) with the largest interorganizational clinical data repository in the
country, will roll out its deployment of the Fusion, Analyze,
and Quality applications
to automate processes and standardize data interchange between payers, providers,
and other constituents following a successful pilot period.

Reaching
over 14,000 healthcare providers serving 14 million patients in Indiana and
neighboring states, IHIE initially deployed Diameter Health’s scalable normalization
and standardization services to increase its aggregation of clinical data for
initiatives like population health and quality reporting. In a successful pilot
with a major national insurer and IHIE, Diameter Health increased yield of clinical
results, such as medications and vaccines, from covering only 10 percent of
members to covering over 90 percent.

“We selected Diameter Health for the scalability of
its technology and its ability to easily integrate into our existing data
infrastructure,” said John Kansky, President and CEO of IHIE. “With deployment,
we expect to realize continued measurable improvements in the accuracy and
completeness of the information we manage and distribute. With Diameter Health,
we’re able to give hospitals, payers, and other members of the network a more holistic
view of the patient for more efficient care and better outcomes.”

IHIE
will continue using the Diameter Health platform to gather more complete and
accurate clinical data in order to reduce unnecessary tests, replace
retrospective chart reviews, and better manage contract alignment for its
customers. Ongoing data surveillance ensures that new data IHIE processes is
consistent with its baseline data. And, as an NCQA certified eMeasure solution,
Diameter Health creates standard supplemental data to support HEDIS measures
used by the healthcare payers IHIE serves.

“IHIE
is one of the most highly regarded HIEs, and has the largest
interorganizational clinical data repository in the nation,” said Eric Rosow,
CEO of Diameter Health. “In fact, Diameter Health processed more data for IHIE in
our pilot than many HIEs have overall. We’re thrilled to continue powering actionable
analytics for a leading HIE with a demonstrated commitment to innovation.”

Diameter
Health’s Fusion application enables IHIE to standardize and enrich clinical
data, creating a single, longitudinal patient view to support value-based care
models, accountable care initiatives, and improve outcomes along the continuum
of care. The Analyze application measures clinical data completeness and
accuracy to create instant ratings and inform IHIE’s ongoing quality
improvement initiatives. The Quality application, certified by the National
Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), automates clinical quality reporting,
and creates standard supplemental data for HEDIS and STAR reporting. Together,
the applications will bring IHIE closer to achieving the Institute for
Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim: improve patient experience, improve the
health of populations, and reduce the cost of healthcare.
