Since 2010, the US uninsured rate has dropped from 17% to 11% of the population.1 Some of the new episode- and populationbased payment models are achieving savings,2 and some categories of healthcare utilization have declined.3 However, medical inflation still rises faster than GDP growth. There is little transparency into pricing, and, in many regions, the price dispersion for similar services exceeds 100%. All too frequently, the correlation between cost and quality is weak. Regulatory constraints often inhibit much-needed innovations. The health status of the population remains below that of most other peer countries.

Managing External Health Information

Lorman

As we move into a new era of health care with the increased exchange of medical records in order to provide better, more coordinated care, the question of what information received from outside an organization should be included in a medical record takes on new importance.

This information may come in the form of unsolicited health information, for example, information that is volunteered by patients or by other health care providers, either at the time the patient arrives for treatment or thereafter, and in some cases even after the patient has been discharged.
