HIMSS17 Interoperability & Standards Breakfast Panel | Tearing down Interoperability Barriers: Real Life Impact on Business, Technology, & People
Interoperability in healthcare can be a vexing concept. Are we talking about how information is exchanged or are we really speaking about how stakeholders and systems across the health ecosystem interact to create a complete picture of an individual's health? This panel will tear down these perceived walls and give attendees real world examples of interoperability in action from a technological and an organizational perspective, as well as explore the "real life" impact on provider workflow and the individual. *Complimentary registration is now open - space is limited!
