By providing better access to health data, you empower members to make more informed choices and improve overall outcomes. Successful healthcare organizations are well on their way to implementing solutions for the CARIN Blue Button Framework and HL7 FHIR. Is your organization ready to turn a potential mandate “nightmare” into a better member experience? Join Edifecs for this educational webinar to assess your preparedness and learn how to accelerate your journey to member empowerment using market-proven solutions that leverage CARIN and Da Vinci for Blue Button and HL7 FHIR.
