Patients' lives, the health and security of our nation's citizens, and the health of the US economy are - in part - reliant on ensuring the right people have the right access to the right health information at the right time. While we have made great strides over the past generation, seamless, secure, nationwide interoperable health information exchange continues to elude us. Although there have been major investments and policies designed to drive standards development, interoperability, and health information exchange, significant barriers and challenges exist. Explore how points of leverage in technology and policy can be used to exploit market-based solutions to this dilemma. A particular focus is current solutions to the requirements of serving complex patients in the context of population health management and new reimbursement models. Because semantic interoperability is not the norm, challenge today's proven solutions and frameworks, and explore cutting-edge ideas in interoperability that will transform the exchange of health information. Is the future of healthcare destined to be incremental or will innovation and economics drive a great leap forward? Take a closer look at the interaction of technologies with policies, payment reform, emerging standards, and use cases that are furthering our progress toward true healthcare transformation in an interoperable world.

Learning objectives:

  1. Appraise the current state of interoperability and health information exchange and the new data sources necessary to be effective for value-based care.
  2. Evaluate how public and private sector efforts supporting interoperability can be effectively leveraged to support creative solutions to the common problems of interoperability and data exchange.
  3. Understand how data from disparate sources such as social determinants and behavioral health are being supported through health information exchange across stakeholders.
  4. Evaluate alternative perspectives on the path forward in interoperability: incrementalism vs. a technological leap-forward.
