WHERE THE BRIGHTEST MINDS in health and IT meet.

Interoperability and HIE Symposium: Interoperability and Health Information Exchange - Making It Work

Sunday, February 19, 2017 | 8:00am - 4:30pm

Interoperability and Health Information Exchange - Making It Work

Cost: $335

Continued adoption of value-based payment models, an expanding number of health IT applications implemented across care settings, evolution of available technical standards, and attention from federal policymakers all underscore and align with the need for semantic interoperability and exchange of data, information, and knowledge across the health system. This symposium provides an integrated understanding of the opportunities and challenges affecting diverse stakeholders stemming from confluence of new policies, evolving standards and certification programs, applications, and coordination required to realize a Learning Health System (LHS) that is patient-centered and improves population health.

  • Evaluate the approaches that are required to innovatively solve challenges to interoperability to enable meaningful health information exchange, improved utilization of clinical information, and empowerment of clinicians, patients and other stakeholders
  • Explain how existing and upcoming standards, certifications and their implementation are addressing barriers to data exchange
  • Describe practical approaches including consumer-oriented solutions that support sustainable interoperable health information exchange
  • Assess how HHS policies supporting value-based purchasing rely upon interoperability and health information exchange
  • Evaluate how interoperability and health information exchange are foundational building blocks to enable the Learning Health System (LHS) vision and drive a person-centered future of health
