Evaluating the Impact on Quality and Costs of Regional Clinical Data Exchange Programs in New York State


New York is currently awarding $53 million in grants to support health information technology initiatives across the state, including developing capacity for the exchange of clinical data among patients, providers, and payers. This project will evaluate six regional programs for clinical data exchange to determine their impact on the quality and cost of health care. The research team will also establish a framework and standardized methodology for financial assessment of regional health information programs and return-on-investment analyses from the perspectives of providers and payers. Findings will be of interest to the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology and to many organizations nationwide that are engaged in developing clinical data exchange programs. Cofunding is anticipated from the New York State Department of Health.
