SPH Analytics, the top ranked MACRA and MIPS Technology vendor, is proud to support U.S. National Health IT Week, a nationwide awareness week focused on catalyzing actionable change within the U.S. health system through the application of information and technology.
Comprehensive health care reform is not possible without cross continuum adoption of health information technology, which improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors, and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers. With quality and closed care gaps being key root causes of lower healthcare costs, these benefits from healthcare IT tend to ultimately reduce the overall cost of care too.
Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally led, market driven initiative.
The Week consists of U.S. National Health IT Week participants —market suppliers, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.
“SPH Analytics is proud to participate in NHIT Week to help highlight the important role healthcare IT plays in improving outcomes and the patient’s experience of care,“ said Amy Amick, President and CEO. “Through our innovative Triple Aim solutions, SPH is committed to supporting our clients with technology that helps transform healthcare for all.”
Building upon this year’s NHIT Week theme of Catalyzing Change, SPH Analytics is supporting a client’s academic presentation about how health IT has enabled quality improvement and exceptional performance in CMS MIPS reporting at the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting and Postgraduate Course for the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), October 5-10 in Philadelphia: http://resources.sphanalytics.com/press-releases/poster-presentation-acg
