87X – Interoperability and the 21st Century Cures Act Imperative: The Advantages of Interoperability Advancements for Health Systems

Wednesday, March 25th

About the Session

The 21st Century Cures Act is poised to transform how the healthcare industry approaches data and interoperability. These new regulations directly affect provider organizations and health information technology vendors, creating an imperative to rethink the approach to medical data access, patient matching and interoperability. With these new rulings, it can be difficult for provider organizations to know how to strategically navigate their interoperability infrastructure and capabilities in a way that best positions them for the future healthcare landscape. This seminar will walk you through the inherent impact the 21st Century Cures Act will have on your organization. Faculty will relate strategies for how your organization can respond by increasing your interoperability value through increased access to clinical documents and improved patient matching.

It’s becoming increasingly important that provider organizations can tap into a nationwide network of networks for gathering rich clinical information about patients. And, with the new proposed ruling regarding interoperability, provider organizations will be encouraged to leverage a network that enables data sharing and prevents information blocking. This inherently produces the need for accurate patient matching. The more information available and confidently matched to a person, the better the care experience and outcomes. Regardless of what becomes final, provider organizations can greatly benefit from enhancing their interoperability capabilities today.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover how advanced data sharing can drive better patient and financial outcomes for all stakeholders.
  • Explore how to increase interoperability value to your organization via improved patient matching.
