Interoperability & HIE Breakfast Panel: Preparing for Rapid Acceleration of Data Exchange

Wednesday, April 19, from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Featured panelist: Scott Stuewe, President and CEO

Location: North Building, Level 3 | Hall B | Booth 7946 | Interoperability Showcase

Details: In 2023, interoperability remains a critical focus, with national data exchange (TEFCA) and public health modernization at the forefront of the public policy agenda. The groundwork was laid at the end of 2022, as Electronic Health Record (EHR) Technology was certified to include open FHIR APIs exposing the U.S. Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) dataset for the first time. This raised the interoperability and access floor across the industry.

Expectations are high for what the introduction of new APIs, trust frameworks, and priorities will mean for patient care. One thing is for sure: we are headed into an era of rapid innovation that will translate into an unprecedented workload on our data management infrastructure. Join us for breakfast and learn from an expert panel about what is driving modernization and what steps we can take to ready infrastructure and take advantage of hyper-scale, secure cloud capabilities to support innovation in patient care.

This event has been standing-room-only year after year! A networking breakfast occurs before the educational panel.

*Registration requested, space is limited. There is no additional fee and a light, complimentary breakfast will be served to all registered guests. Please register by completing the survey here.
