Healthcare IT’s Future Starts Here

The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) is the leading authority on the use of Health IT to improve healthcare information exchange in order to enhance the quality of care, improve efficiency and to reduce costs of the American healthcare system. Formed in 1991 by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), WEDI was named in the 1996 HIPAA legislation as an advisor to HHS and continues to fulfill that role today.

Serving as a private and public industry solution to critical healthcare problems, WEDI is a coalition comprised of a cross-section of the healthcare industry: doctors, hospitals, health plans, laboratories, pharmacies, clearinghouses, dentists, vendors, government regulators and other industry stakeholders.

Emergency Preparedness and Data Exchange- Interoperability at Work
A hurricane. A terrorist attack. A school bus accident. Emergencies occur at the local, regional, national and international levels. During these stressful times, health data needs to smoothly and efficiently move at a moment’s notice to ensure quality of care at the point of care. A panel of subject matter experts led by Noah Smith from the Government of the District of Columbia discuss case studies, initiatives and lessons learned on emergency preparedness and health information exchange.

Ways & Means Committee Listening Session
Ways and Means Subcommittee Chairman Kevin Brady and Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi’s recently announced the “Red Tape Relief” initiative to reduce administrative burdens facing the healthcare industry. To assist in advancing this project, the Committee will need to work closely with a wide range of healthcare stakeholders and health IT professionals. Join us Wednesday, December 6th in Reston, VA as we welcome House Ways & Means Health Subcommittee Staffer Nicholas Uehlecke to the conference as WEDI supports the Committee’s initiative by providing important and unique insight to identify burdensome mandates that stand in the way of better patient care.
