Three years after the big announcement, what do vendors and providers realistically expect from the CommonWell Health Alliance, and what still needs to happen? Kent Gale discussess KLAS’ findings.
Collaboration leaders and vendors often present a connectivity image that is clearer than what users actually see. So what’s the real picture when it comes to interoperability? KLAS’ Kent Gale sheds some light.
Interoperability and patient access to data were among the top themes addressed in the HELP Committee’s draft health IT legislation, which aims to improve the use and development of tools such as EHRs.
A key finding from the KLAS Summit? Interoperability must start with EMR vendors, and that process must include providers as partners in ensuring the successful exchange of patient data, says Kent Gale.
Developing a better path to measuring interoperability means abandoning old ideas and relying on four of the best and brightest minds in the industry, says KLAS Founder Kent Gale.
