Greater than $26 billion has been spent in Meaningful Use (MU) payouts and another $6.5 million has been spent to fund state Health Information Exchanges (HIE) and to advance HIE adoption. Despite considerable investment and several decades of effort, a meaningful level of interoperability has not been achieved. Having the right information available at the right time for the right individual depends upon the proper interoperability of all systems.
Attend this one-hour webinar for an understanding of:
- The principles of healthcare Information Governance
- The role of Interoperability as it relates to Information Governance and the overall concept of reliability
- The driving factors of standardization of HIT products to enable Interoperability
- What is meant by ‘information blocking’
- A private sector’s response to Interoperability through the CommonWell Health Alliance
- The opportunities Interoperability presents for HIM professionals
