The industry is taking steps to enhance data usability, so providers and patients can make informed care decisions. Join us for an expert-led panel discussion to examine how advancements in interoperability can help bring internal and external data together, reduce clinician burden by removing duplicated data, and provide a holistic view of the patient’s care history. We will also discuss how Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) is going to help impact the availability of patient data through information exchange by all care venues. Finally, we will hear from clinical advisors on the work they’re doing to increase data utilization within their organization.
