Cumberland helps federal, state and local government agencies facilitate information exchange, so they can have a comprehensive view of patient populations. We understand the technical requirements, as well as the organizational structures of participating agencies, and provide strategic support for public health initiatives.
“Focused, organized and hard-working – these are just a few of the words I would use to describe the Cumberland team. I’ve been very happy with the services I’ve received from Cumberland and would highly recommend them to other government agencies looking for healthcare consultants with technical and business expertise.”Bridget Ahrens, Immunization Registry Manager, Vermont Department of Health
Cumberland consultants are experts in interoperability and health data standards, including HL7’s Clinical Documentation Architecture (CDA). We work on behalf of state government agencies to help providers set up their EHR systems to comply with these standards so data can be reported to public health registries and managed appropriately.
Through our system interoperability services, we are able to support various government programs and initiatives, including:
We help interface EHRs with integration engines used by public health registries so providers can achieve Public Health Reporting measures required by Meaningful Use.
Federal Funding Requests
We understand the nuances of funding request documentation and oversee the development of these applications for public agencies.
Health Information Exchanges (HIEs)
Our HIE-certified consultants employ a team approach and proven onboarding methodology to help HIEs secure provider adoption.
We work with state departments of health to validate and standardize data from EHR systems so it can be properly maintained in registries.
“Cumberland has been a tremendous partner in helping Arkansas providers maximize the value of EHRs across the state in order to achieve the Public Health Reporting measures of Meaningful Use. The team has a deep understanding of both the software and infrastructure necessary to efficiently capture and share data to improve public health.”Michael Kincaid, CIO, Arkansas Department of Health
