While some health claims are processed electronically, many others are not. In addition, the electronic transactions rarely capture data that would be very useful to provider and payer decision makers. As a result, clinical, administrative, and policy decisions often are made with incomplete and outdated information. This paper presents an integrated information system that can alleviate these shortcomings and promote effective electronic commerce in health care.
