Preparing as Healthcare Data Exchanges Pave the Way for Consumer Health Initiatives

April 22, 2021

Consumer health initiatives are opening healthcare data exchanges and transforming interoperability. Emerging technologies are creating opportunities to move from point-to-point integrations between business partners to consumer-driven exchanges where third-party applications can access data on behalf of patients and members. 

Federal regulations around interoperability, information blocking, and price transparency - along with the urgency to support COVID-19 testing and vaccinations - have put a spotlight on the consumer experience in healthcare. Health plans and key stakeholders are preparing their FHIR resources, but many are overlooking essential details.

eHI joined Axway and OneRecord to discuss preparation for the requirements in the CMS and ONC interoperability and information blocking final rules and help ensure a smooth, stress-free transition.
