Beyond Boundaries: ONC’s 2017 Technical Interoperability Forum

An In-Person ONC Event

Alyssa Thomas 0 184

On August 15-16, 2017, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) will host a two-day, in-person only, technical interoperability forum with standards and technology industry stakeholders to:

  1. Identify industry alignment around priority interoperability use cases.
  2. Gain insight into current and expected interoperability challenges, including information blocking.
  3. Better understand next steps that respective stakeholders can take individually and collectively to improve interoperability among health IT systems.

The 21st Century Cures Act charges ONC with improving interoperability among health IT systems, including reducing information blocking, and enhancing the usability, accessibility, and privacy and security of health IT.  Likewise, the law encourages continued engagement with industry stakeholders to inform both challenges and successes in achieving interoperability.

These two days will focus on how ONC, our federal partners, the health care industry, and the technology sector can come together to shape the technical aspects of interoperability to achieve these important goals. If you lead, develop, and implement health IT systems or standards, this event is for you.
