Health Data Standards – Foundation for Health IT Interoperability

February 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Achieving Interoperability for comprehensive and secure data share of ePHI across the care continuum is a priority for all healthcare stakeholders. It has been a full decade since the passing of the HITECH Act, and while providers continue to earn Medicare incentive payments through the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program (formerly known as Meaningful Use), the industry continues to reconcile itself with the widespread use of health data standards across organizations, networks and EHR systems.

While progress has been made by a number of standards organizations, the differences in the ways standards are adopted and implemented may be slowing the industry down towards full Interoperability.

Join eFax Corporate (@eFaxCorporate) and HITECH Answers (@HITECHAnswers) on this informative webinar where Lee Barrett, the Executive Director of The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) will discuss the current state of health data standards, and how the challenges of widespread adoption may be solved.


Join us and Executive Director of The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), Lee Barrett, as we discuss:

  • The various levels of Interoperabilty and where the industry is today
  • Which health data standards are in play to boost efforts towards Interoperability
  • If workable standards exist, and what the barriers are to adoption and implementation
  • The role of the Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA)
  • The use of Direct Secure Messaging
  • If FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) the answer?
  • TNAP, TEFCA and 21st Century Cures
  • What catalysts will drive progress in 2019
  • How Cloud Faxing Fits in

Plus, you’ll have an opportunity to ask some of your most pressing questions during the live Q&A portion of our webinar.
