Electronic health records and continued advancements in health information technology present significant opportunities to advance the delivery of healthcare and improve patient outcomes for millions of Americans. While the benefits are clear and the public interest is high, the healthcare industry continues to face a number of barriers in achieving interoperability.  This webinar will discuss some of the financial, technological, and operational issues providers face and how organizations are confronting these barriers head on.  The distinguished panel, which includes leaders from the HHS Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services, the Office for the National Coordinator, and the American Medical Association, will discuss existing standards and resources as well as the path forward for stakeholders striving to achieve meaningful interoperability to improve patient care.
