This webinar will focus on the recent history of interoperability as a part of the overall behavioral care landscape (how we got here). Then we look at what’s ahead from various angles: HIPAA, Cures Act, ONC, CMS, and others, because we know that each of these areas has its own history and roadmap with interoperability. Finally, we dive into why providers need to be paying attention now in order to avoid problems in the future.
Upon completion of this webinar, you will learn more about:
- What interoperability is — and why it matters to providers
- How to get prepared to meet requirements that are coming, or are already here
- What a client-centric focus looks like, and how to get there
