Adding Meaning to Interoperable Exchange Webinar

The interoperable data exchange landscape has expanded in the past five years as Meaningful Use made way for Promoting Interoperability and TEFCA, and industry dialogue expanded to consider exchange needs internationally. But as more information is able to be shared and accessed across more settings and stakeholders, how is this growing interoperability being integrated into workflow and providing usable information to improve care? This session will assess the technical, organizational and policy needs to drive interoperability forward beyond exchange to consider the needs of the end-user integrating and leveraging this knowledge to inform clinical and business decisions to improve health and lower costs. In addition, this panel of experts will explore specific challenges and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on increasing exchange.
