COVID-19: Interoperability Rules of the Road... Better Data, Better Interoperability Webinar

During this on-demand webinar, thought leaders from HIMSS’s interoperability & HIE and physician communities discuss how industry adherence to basic interoperability "rules of the road" equip clinicians with better tracking mechanisms for COVID-19 cases and provide a long-term framework for subsequent healthcare initiatives that rely on consistent, reliable, high-quality data.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss why complying to interoperability standards is a critical component in the timely and reliable transition of health information, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Highlight challenges with deploying standards in an effective way to inform care interventions
  • Identify ways to encourage and enable healthcare provider organizations to improve on their data sharing practices
  • Explore foundational interoperability principles which enable immediate improvements in data sharing and reporting capabilities
