“While interoperability continues to be perceived by many as a difficult, distant goal, the reality is that we have reached a point on the technology maturity curve where realizing connectivity with everyone in the healthcare continuum is within the reach of all providers,” said Jon Elwell, chief executive officer at Kno2. “The presentations our team is participating in will demonstrate that the key factors required for mass adoption—cost-effectiveness, ready availability, ease of use, and affordability—are now all in place. The heavy lifting is over. It’s time for all of healthcare to turn on interoperability—and achieve the best possible outcomes for every patient.”
The Kno2 team is available to meet during the week with potential business partners to assist with discovering the path to interoperability. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting time.
