Interoperability Showcase: NATE’s Blue Button Directory

Interoperability Showcase (Level 2 | Lobby F | Tangerine Ballroom | Booth 9000)

NBBD logoConsumers are requesting their medical records and providers want to share them but there is often a workflow disconnect between the two.  NATE and demonstration participants will show how a simple enabling infrastructure can alleviate this problem.  NATE’s Blue Button Directory allows patients to discover how best to submit their request for health information and establishes a secure end-point for the covered entity’s staff responsible for managing these requests.  NATE will demonstrate the registration of the organization by the appropriate staff (e.g., medical records department) in a FHIR-based directory, and show how the provisioning of a Direct address enables bi-directional exchange with those consumer-controlled apps recognized by NATE’s trust community.

Setting up with Roger Ellefson from Xerox and Linda Granneman and Tina Feldmann from Kno2!

Tearing Down Interoperability Barriers: Real Life Impact on Business, Technology & People – featuring NATE CEO Aaron Seib

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 — 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM ET — Interoperability Showcase Theater (Level 2 | Lobby F | Tangerine Ballroom | Booth 9000)

Interoperability in healthcare can be a vexing concept. Are we talking about how information is exchanged or are we really speaking about how stakeholders and systems across the health ecosystem interact to create a complete picture of an individual’s health? This Interoperability & Standards Breakfast Panel will tear down these perceived walls and give attendees real world examples of interoperability in action from a technological and an organizational perspective, as well as explore the ‘real life’ impact on provider workflow and the individual. Panelists will discuss how and why these examples have worked in the real world, and the technologies that made it happen.
