Seamless Transfer of Information

As I stated in my last post I have been deeply involved with establishing a “Rules of the Road” for the interoperability of patients health information.  I truly believe that in order to aspire toward the triple aim of better health, better care at a lower cost we must provide the most accurate, most timely information for the clinician to make a well informed decision. Only then will be truly understand the cost of care and drive to prevent redundant testing and render care in the most appropriate venue. With that in mind I had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with Roya Camp of St. Luke’s Health System to discuss my involvement in this national initiative of improving the access of timely health information- interoperability.
