Achieving Interoperability and Information Sharing in the U.S. Health Care System

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Washington, D.C. – Despite federal investments of more than $30 billion in electronic health record technology, nationwide interoperability across U.S. health care settings has yet to be achieved. On Wednesday, December 8, the Bipartisan Policy Center will convene a timely discussion with national leaders on the current actions being taken to increase electronic information sharing and interoperability of systems to support increasing consumer demand, emerging new models of care delivery and payment, and advances in biomedical innovation.

Members of the press wishing to attend, please RSVP to Joann Donnellan [email protected].
