Real-world Interoperability: The Problem is not the Standards
July 14, 2015, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Wes Rishel, Retired Health IT Nerd (founder and past chair of HL7, and six-year member of Health IT Standards Committee). Health IT standards are simultaneously the magic bullet and whipping boy of interoperability. Standards will never make interoperability easy although they can help make it possible. Wes discusses the underlying issues of trust, regulation, curation and workflow challenges that an ACO or HDN must face to benefit from interoperability.
