North Building, Level 3 | Hall B | Booth 7946 | Interoperability Showcase

Join us for an engaging session on empowering maternal health by integrating informatics, technology, and interoperability strategy for optimal and equitable outcomes. In this session, you will hear from industry experts on the current landscape of maternal health outcomes and disparities both in the United States and globally. We will explore case studies and real world experiences of sharing data across multiple care settings, and the safety, security and sensitivity concerns that are unique to maternal health. Additionally, we will analyze the challenges with the current barriers in health IT systems and health information exchange practices, and the deficiency of standards in maternal health workflows. The panel will highlight steps that can be taken to start to reduce these challenges and the extra burden that maternal health clinicians and patients face.

Finally, we will discuss future trends and opportunities for leveraging informatics, technology and interoperable exchange to improve maternal health outcomes and reduce disparities. Join us for an informative and inspiring conversation that will equip you with practical knowledge and strategies for improving maternal health outcomes through the power of technology.
