The Power of Interoperability: What it Means to Your Practice
August 11, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Stan Huff, CMIO, Intermountain Healthcare, and Oscar Diaz, CEO, Healthcare Services Platform Consortium (HSPC). Health IT has the potential to increase healthcare quality, lower healthcare costs and improve population health. But, interoperability continues to be a formidable challenge to the collection, sharing, and effective use of electronic health information. At the heart of this complex problem is identifying, prioritizing, and advancing technical standards to support secure and interoperable health information. Several industry-wide interoperability initiatives are currently underway to remove the obstacles preventing providers, payers, public health entities, and other stakeholders from securely sending, receiving, and using electronic health information. In this presentation you will learn about interoperability initiatives being spearheaded by the federal government and the private sector, and you will find out what efforts are gaining traction as well as what the relative advantages/disadvantages are of each.
