Continuing the Conversation: Tearing Down Interoperability Barriers - Real Life Impact on Business, Technology & People


Jun 5, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm EDT
Virtual Event

Sponsored by Cerner

Interoperability continues to be an issue that stakeholders across the health and healthcare ecosystem find difficult to address. In this session, our panelists will continue the conversation that began at HIMSS17 on the remaining barriers and opportunities surrounding the complex topic of interoperability. Where the first session set the stage for the various impacts of interoperability across stakeholders, in this session, the panelists will share their experiences within their respective fields in trying to achieve widespread interoperability, and discuss challenges they have faced in their daily lives. Our panelists will explore the role of emerging standards and technologies, and share use cases important to their interoperability efforts. Finally, the discussion will cover the individual perspective, examining the role providers and individuals play within these efforts to streamline information exchange.

Learning Objectives

After this session, attendees should be able to:

  1. Describe the challenges and opportunities associated with interoperability and exchange on the delivery of care and individual’s care experiences.
  2. Identify key ongoing efforts to further implementation of interoperable systems and workflows to leverage information exchange.
  3. Analyze the technology and infrastructure required to achieve interoperability and implement exchange.
