Health Information Exchange: Implementation in the Real World
The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), part of the Department for Health and Human Services, has awarded funds as part of its State Health Information Exchange (State HIE) Corporative Agreement Program. The goal of this program is to support efforts to rapidly build capacity for exchanging health information across the health care system both within and across states.
The program moderator and panelists will discuss the expansion and development of new HIEs which are bringing together local communities and which then are connecting to the state network, including the challenges and lessons learned from a technical, governance, engagement, and sustainability point-of-view. The panelists will also discuss related offerings available to Health Care Systems through the HIE including strategies to meet the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Meaningful Use requirements and how the HIE can be employed to share data for Transitions of Care.
Please join Central Illinois American College of Healthcare Executives and Greg Wahlstrom, Dr. Douglas Garland Jr., Carla Smith, Jack Malloy and Lauren Wiseman for this 90-minute panel discussion via webinar. This event will include an opportunity for Q&A.
