Unlocking better, safer, less costly care is the promise of value-based care, and interoperability is the key to delivering on this promise.
In an increasingly mobile society, it can be challenging for clinicians to manage patient information. Ensuring all members of a patient’s care team has access to a complete picture of their medical history lays the groundwork for the kind of holistic, well-informed, and comprehensive care delivery that is central to a value-based care system.
While there’s nothing easy about interoperability, the fact is that providers and care managers across the country are quietly making interoperability a reality, from ambulatory encounters to home care and beyond. Organizations are improving care management for individual patients and large patient populations, including real-world examples from primary care, emergency care, and during transitions of care, because they have access to a timely view of a patient’s care at all stages of their journey.
Industry leaders will take a deep dive into the current trends facing the transition toward interoperability and value-based care, including increased consumerism, more patients with multiple chronic conditions, and a very active regulatory environment. Experts will provide first-hand accounts of recent achievements and perspectives from health systems and the post-acute care market, including progress implementing new standards such as HL7 and FHIR, and detail the technology solutions, such as record locator services and other tools for sharing patient records at the point of care, that help make interoperability possible and realize the promise of value-based care.
