Improving Care Coordination with Nationwide Data Exchange

1:30pm - 2:30pm Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W230A

Description

In a 2018 study, 50% of physicians surveyed noted they were not satisfied with their access to patient data, noting that the lack of access to patients’ clinical history can impede care coordination and result in increased costs. This session will share personal clinical and operational experiences in leveraging patient-centered interoperability to connect disparate information and technology solutions, health systems and providers both locally and nationally. Bringing their unique experiences, the speakers will share how having unfettered, real-time access to relevant patient health data cannot be underestimated. It is a game changer for the industry that is ultimately resulting in better value, improved patient experience, reduced costs and decreased provider frustration.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the barriers that hinder scalable, nationwide, vendor-neutral interoperability today
  • Identify how physicians are gaining immediate access to relevant patient information to improve patient care
  • Explain how better coordinated care can reduce tests, time and costs as well as improve outcomes
