Assessment

The inappropriate billings, which the providers attributed to clerical mistakes, totaled less than $1 million.

At the recent 2010 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference & Exhibition here in Atlanta, Microsoft announced Microsoft HealthVault Community Connect, a new software solution for hospitals designed to help them improve care coordination and engage patients and their families in managing their own health.

Improving Coordination of Care

HealthVault Community Connect reports to enable hospitals to give patients and referring physician’s access, after discharge, to electronic copies of the patient’s personal health data generated at the hospital. The product also lets patients pre-register for hospital appointments online using their electronic personal health information to populate hospital forms in advance.

Assessment

Microsoft HealthVault Community Connect lets hospitals exchange electronic patient health information with patients and referring doctors. The new solution is scheduled to be available in the third quarter of 2010.
