4th Annual Current and Future State of Interoperability Panel Discussion – In this discussion, our moderator and panelists discuss two complimentary access rules that look to move the entire industry to full-scale Interoperability. The Interoperability and Patient Access rules are the driving force behind the belief that patients own their health data and need to be able to easily access it. Together, the two rules – one from CMS and the other from the ONC – address both technical and healthcare industry factors that have historically created industry barriers to Interoperability. Both rules also support Interoperability and data blocking as part of implementing the 21st Century Cures act. Join moderator healthcare attorney Matt Fisher and this year’s line-up of industry leaders as the panel discuss the impact of these two rules set to go in to effect in 2020, as well as farther-reaching implications.

Manage a Complete Approach to Care: Integrate Physical, Behavioral, and Social Health Data – The push for integrated healthcare is a by-product of the shift to value-based reimbursement (VBR) payment models. VBR models work best with integrated systems—this means integrated financial incentives, information platforms, and clinical models. In this session, they’ll cover the challenges of integration, essential elements in building a shared data framework, and examples of successful data sharing in integrated models of care.
Digitizing the Consumer Healthcare Journey – Today’s consumer expects to be able to do everything online but the demand for digital convenience is still not being met by most healthcare providers. The economics of health systems are at risk. The only way forward is to shift how consumers find, book, and pay for their care. In this webinar, learn how Providence St. Joseph Health was able to help patients find and choose appropriate care quickly by developing a transaction ready- same day care model that improved the patient experience and also cut costs. In 2019 alone, Providence St. Joseph Health saw a 30% increase in new consumer growth.
