The concept of value sets is quite simple.
“It’s nothing more complicated than identifying and then creating a group of people with something in common – a collection of patients you can use for population health efforts, clinical decision support, or quality improvement programs,” says Steven Rube, MD, IMO’s Senior Vice President, Global Clinical Services.
What’s not so easy is the practice of defining and maintaining value sets, as reflected in data from a new HIMSS research report, sponsored by IMO. In fact, 87% of respondents said they face difficulties with the processes involved in maintaining their records and keeping them current.
