The (Continued) Case for Interoperability: A Tweetchat


7.07.2017 By AVAILITY


As technology advances and administrative costs soar, interoperability becomes increasingly more important in healthcare. Every week there is a new article or study on what could be achieved if only our healthcare data systems talked to each other, so why don’t they? Join us on Friday, 7/14 at 1pm ET for our #AskAvaility chat on interoperability featuring our Platform Solutions Architect, David Quickstad (@DQuickstad), and the CTO of HL7, Wayne Kubick (@WayneKubick). We’re talking about why interoperability is so important, what it might mean for all players in the healthcare space, and what outside influencers like Amazon and Apple can bring to the table. It’s going to be a great chat on a super-hot topic (some might even say it’s on FHIR), so be there!

Our tweetchat will be held in T1:A1 format with the following topics:

T1: Why are investments in interoperable data standards such as #FHIR so important? #AskAvaility

T2: How can #interoperability standard adoption by payers and providers improve healthcare? #AskAvaility

T3: What are the biggest obstacles for the adoption of #interoperability standards in healthcare right now? #AskAvaility

T4: How long until #interoperability standards are mandated, either through legislation or market demand? #AskAvaility

T5: How have consumer-technologies driven the market need for #interoperability/#FHIR? #AskAvaility

T6: If/when #interoperability standards are adopted, what’re the first solutions you want to see integrated? #AskAvaility

Bonus: How might tech giants looking to enter #healthcare (like @Apple) force it to engage in true #interoperability? #AskAvaility

Bring your comments, questions, ideas, and best gif game to the chat and be sure to tag #AskAvaility. You can also tweet your thoughts to the hosts at @DQuickstad, @WayneKubick, and @Availity.
