Interoperability & HIE Forum

Pioneering the Next Era of Healthcare Data Interoperability

TEFCA is a key topic on everyone's minds. We anticipate the emergence of the QHINs (Qualified Health Information Networks), which will likely coincide with the global conference. This is generating significant interest.

This day-long forum will examine how these networks will function within their frameworks and their methods of exchanging information. By the end of the day, we want participants to feel well-prepared to return to their organizations with a solid grasp of the situation and the ability to navigate the decision-making process involved in integrating this new information exchange paradigm into their operations.
