UC San Diego Health has long been a leader in technology.
In order to support quality reporting and care management, especially as we enter into value-based payment arrangements with select payers, affiliated practices have two options for health information exchange. First, use of Epic through UC San Diego Health’s Community Connect offering. Second, use of another federally-certified EMR.
Use of Epic provides improved health care delivery through the seamless exchange of health information. A single EMR platform enables integrated coordination of care for shared patients and is the best way to improve quality and control costs, which is critical for current and future value-based payment programs.
