Summary: The Interoperability rule has been a long time in coming.  Progress toward this goal was delayed due to COVID 19, with enforcement of the rules and deadlines, often delayed for months and even years out.  Those goals are back on track with dates for accountability and responsibility now codified by CMS.   The goal of the interoperability rule was always (Patient Access final rule (CMS-9115-F)) put patients first by giving them access to their health information when they need it most, and in a way, they can best use it.   In addition, the interoperability rule provides opportunity for innovation around data sharing and integration.   Today we will review where we are in this this interoperability, what gains we’ve seen and where we still need to go.


  1. Understand the 21st Cures Act and how it impacts the interoperability rule
  2. Current state, what is required of who and the enforcement of interoperability, specifically around government funded contracts
  3. Impact to patients, providers and progress toward meeting the goals

Summary:  This session will address how large health systems are unifying ROI and the path they are taking to achieve this goal. While many health systems have discussed transitioning to a unified approach, COVID-19 demonstrated that it’s past time to accelerate this transition. The session will identify how to build the business case, project planning, pitfalls and lessons and the benefits to an entire health system.

Achieving compliance while improving service and reducing cost is the central challenge for ROI. As this session will underscore, achieving these goals requires a unified approach to ROI across the enterprise, including ambulatory services and affiliated practices. 


o   Identify the benefits of moving from fragmented to unified ROI and how to build the business case

o   Consider gaps and roadblocks in the levels of integration of your organization’s ROI systems
