Practical Interoperability

November 17, 2021 | Webinar

Over the past few years, "interoperability" has become a household name for those in healthcare. There is a great deal of information on this everywhere you turn; however, those in the industry need this information broken down into easily consumable information in those areas that impact them the most. During this webinar, a panel of experts will focus on three key areas of interoperability. One will be recognizing the related hardships some clinicians are facing while highlighting how others have overcome challenges. The second area will be reviewing the regulations and requirements, including the imaging archive and the new information blocking regulation law in October 2022. The third area will be the patient's experience with access to their provider's and personal data.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of workflows to help ease challenges clinicians face with interoperability.
  • Understand the impending regulations that will impact clinicians.
  • Gain a better perspective on the patient experience when it comes to interoperability.
