As Medicare, Medicaid, employers, and commercial payers press for new ways of paying for care, the data sharing enterprise will become an ever more important component of provider and payer strategic planning. Q Corp is proud to be included in this recently released report from the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network: Data Sharing Requirements Initiative: Collaborative Approaches to Advance Data Sharing.

The goal of this report is to assist individual organizations in making strategic decisions about data sharing. The report addresses how doing so requires going beyond their own walls and assessing community and regional assets and potentially national vendor options. Local efforts will be greatly enhanced by alignment across the nation on some foundational aspects of data sharing. These three levels—the individual organization, key community and regional partnerships, and system-wide infrastructure support are all necessary. Moreover, some of the needed functionality could be acquired commercially rather than built, by either those implementing value-based payment or third party entities supporting them.
