FHIR-ing Forward: CMS’ Journey to Interoperability
Join CMS’ Office of Burden Reduction & Health Informatics as they review the major interoperability events leading up to recent regulations and discuss the agency’s direction for the future, including the use of standards, proposed policy changes, and requests for information (RFIs). During this session, attendees will hear from CMS’ Chief Health Informatics Officer (CHIO) and interoperability strategy leads about past, present, and future interoperability activities. In May 2020, CMS released the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, our first step to guide the health care ecosystem in the direction of interoperability.

Hear about how CMS continues to advance interoperability and standardize data exchange across the health care ecosystem.
