Get to know four experts in interoperability for health care


Aneesh Chopra leads a discussion on data sharing in health care featuring experts from Humana, UPMC, and Nokia

The Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) convened a panel of experts to discuss the challenges of interoperability in health care and recent developments that are giving stakeholders optimism that progress is being made.

The presentation, moderated by Aneesh Chopra, jumps off from CCM research findings that show health systems continue to be challenged by interoperability. However, as Chopra and the panelists discussed, recent actions by the federal government, the development of data standards and other tech advancements, and other actions should give the industry hope that an era of better data-sharing is near.
