Purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP)
QHN and CBC have identified the need for a robust data platform solution that allows for the aggregation of data from all of the disparate systems associated with an HIE environment along with other data sources that will be associated with the HIE such as administrative (billing/payer) and other clinical sources including Electronic Health Record Systems, Practice Management Systems, Billing clearing houses, Pharmacy Systems, etc.
The challenge facing QHN and the CBC is to consolidate and normalize the data from many disparate systems in such a way that the data can be easily presented to and consumed by other applications and users for a range of purposes from detailed patient interactions to advanced health reporting (population health) needs and analytics (cost, performance, risk).
