Jon Elwell, CEO of Kno2™, shares his views on healthcare interoperability as providers transition to value-based care with a key focus on improved patient outcomes. The ability to exchange electronic patient data securely with providers at every point in the healthcare continuum is no longer a “nice to have.” It is a must-have because the success of any provider in delivering quality outcomes is dependent on the actions of all the other providers who touch that patient.
While EHRs have done much to enable interoperability for large hospitals and health systems, a gap remains, specifically in the post-acute care market. These providers are critical cogs in the wheel of healthcare and represent a significant portion of bringing a patient through to a positive outcome…yet they’re the toughest to reach.
Learn how three core elements – network, security and directory – can be leveraged to get ALL of healthcare on the fast track to interoperability.
