Tuesday, October 24, 2017 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CT

LTPAC providers have long been a key partner in delivering and coordinating patient care. As patients move between care settings, organizations are increasingly embracing health information technology to help facilitate these transitions. Yet there are questions as to the use of health information exchanges by LTPAC provider organizations. Join us as we review the recently released ONC report profiling EHR adoption and interoperability in skilled nursing facilities and learn about HIMSS’s efforts to further examine health information exchange in LTPAC settings.

Session Speakers:

Vaishali Patel, PhD, MPH
Senior Advisor, ONC

Lorren Pettit
Vice President, HIS and Research, HIMSS
