Sharing behavioral health data across the care continuum is an essential piece to patient-centered care and there is an increasing urgency to support and meet the needs of this population. This free Roundtable webinar addresses the varied challenges clinicians, health systems and HIEs face in sharing behavioral health data across the healthcare eco-system, as well as the approaches used to successfully exchange the data. Our panelists will discuss recommendations that key stakeholder groups, from the federal government to EHR/HIE vendors, can take to make sharing behavioral health data a reality.
