The concept of promoting greater interoperability in healthcare has continued to gain steam as stakeholders in the care continuum have discovered the value of sharing data in a meaningful way.
As a result, more state and federal agencies are offering incentives designed to encourage this holistic approach to client-centric care.
Though, if you’re thinking about adopting greater data interoperability standards, you could be missing out if you aren’t considering the big picture.
If you’re thinking about taking the first step to join a health information exchange (HIE), you should also think about the additional value you can bring to the table as a result.
In this webinar, Tom Ford, CEO at Lookout Mountain Community Services, and Angela Ball, integration practice manager at Qualifacts, will present strategies for maximizing the value of data integration.
If your organization is currently planning to integrate with an HIE, Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) or a medical facility in your community, register today to reserve your spot.
After watching this webinar recording, you will be able to:
- Identify the most impactful use cases that can benefit your organization when planning an integration project
- Learn why it’s important to think about an integration project beyond just “checking the box” in terms of deliverables
- Discover the untapped value of data that can be leveraged as a result of sharing information with other organizations and how that can help you support better outcomes, operationalize your population health strategies and thrive within value-based care reimbursement models
