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 HIT vendors, creating an imperative to rethink the approach to medical data access, patient matching and interoperability.

It’s becoming increasingly important that provider organizations can tap into a nationwide network of networks for gathering rich clinical information about a patient, especially during a pandemic. With the proposed ruling from the ONC and CMS regarding interoperability, and in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, provider organizations will be encouraged to leverage a network that enables data sharing and prevent 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how advanced data sharing can drive better patient and financial outcomes for all stakeholders.
  • Increase interoperability value to the organization through improved patient matching and exponentially increase access and use of clinical documents.
