From health systems to clinicians to health plans to vendors, from New York to Washington D.C. to industry collaborations, from right-now progress to near-term 2020 expectations of “open APIs”:  hear about the standards-based efforts of industry leaders engaged in meeting the challenges of value-based care.
Hear about the challenges, the opportunities and updates on the variety of industry stakeholders who are having success and making progress on data access and health information exchange – to support value-based care.
In February HHS announced proposed new rules to improve the interoperability of electronic health information. In support of patient-centered healthcare, the proposed CMS and ONC rules focus on open API standards (HL7 FHIR) and are anticipated to require health care providers and plans to implement open data sharing technologies to support transitions of care, provide easy access to electronic health information, and reduce provider burden, as basis for giving clinicians more time to focus on improving care.
Hear from several healthcare leaders who are accelerating interoperability in the organizations they support. This panel discussion will focus on:
  • What standard-based open APIs (HL7 FHIR) and who are the industry collaborations focused on accelerating interoperability
  • benefits and challenges of adapting health information exchange solutions to support value-based payment initiatives
  • Updates on the DSRIP Efforts in New York  encompasses providers, payers, and an all-payer database initiative
  • Tales from the Front on the status and progress of the New York All-Payer Database, as a resource to support data analyses on health care trends and improvement opportunities
  • Overview and status of the ONC FHIR At Scale Taskforce and the HL7 Da Vinci Project
