Webinar – 3 Strategies for Achieving Interoperability

About this webinar

The future of healthcare in the US is based on an assumption that every health IT system can interoperate with every other health IT system—which would enable better care coordination and reduce costs. But how far along are we at actually achieving full interoperability and what can we do to get there?

Watch this webinar to learn about why the newest frontier of interoperability—called "identity interoperability"—is essential to enabling better care coordination, reducing costs, and solving the patient identification and matching problem. 

Watch the webinar to learn:

  • The larger challenge and strategy of achieving interoperability
  • How one large health system, OhioHealth, is achieving interoperability within its own four walls
  • Strategies for achieving interoperability not just within an organization, but also between organizations, and with payers, HIEs, and state and federal health agencies
  • The newest frontier of interoperability—called "identity interoperability"—and counter intuitive ways that organizations can achieve it
