Abstract

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.

Objectives:

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
