What COVID-19 has highlighted, and was true before the pandemic, is disconnected data is everywhere.
We’ve seen the lack of connected data result in unnecessary expense, excel maintenance, errors in data translation, and even mistakes in patient diagnosis. However, COVID-19 has also brought about innovation and the use of connected data in unique ways. This panel will discuss the benefits of a connected health care eco-system, changes they are implementing in their states, and the operational and health care delivery implications of HL7’s FHIR standard as well as other influencing factors. What are we giving up? What are we gaining? What can you do today to help move to a common standard?
