The Sullivan Institute for Healthcare Innovation, in partnership with the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), have assembled more than 40 representatives from major health plans, providers, health IT vendors, healthcare organizations and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in an effort to develop an effective and consistent industry blueprint for a virtual clipboard mobile application. This collaborative effort is working to develop and pilot an effective and consistent industry blueprint for the patient intake process, including automating the collection of critical health insurance and demographic information.
Building off recommendations contained in the 2013 WEDI Report, the project seeks to leverage smart technologies to dramatically enhance the patient experience while improving patient safety. The Institute and its partners are working to create a solution blueprint for a “smart” mobile solution that will ease the patient check-in process by automating demographic, insurance and critical clinical information (e.g. allergies, medications and lab results) elements.
