Achieving Care Coordination
Healthcare is focused on interoperability and information exchange, but much more needs to be done to achieve truly coordinated care across an organization or a region. Listen to speakers highlight different perspectives on care coordination, the challenges they’ve faced in coordinating care across organizational boundaries, and what they’ve found to be the best approach for not only care, but also the associated payment system.
