Stand Apart: Interoperability's Strategic Role in Advancing Behavioral Healthcare Transformation

Wednesday, October 26, 2016 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Interoperability has become a universal game changer in the world of behavioral healthcare, and it’s not hard to understand why. Fundamental to improving consumer outcomes is optimizing your agency’s efficiency by minimizing redundant, time consuming tasks that erode margins and compromise your agency’s ability to serve. 

In this webinar, we’ll discuss historical barriers to interoperability, as well as how they are disappearing and igniting change. Emerging challenges, opportunities, and why interoperability should matter to you from a strategic—not solely tactical—perspective will also be addressed. We’ll conclude by introducing key elements to consider when devising an interoperability strategy.

This webinar is the first of a series of thought leader conversations focused on the industry, business, and technical considerations of interoperability.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define what interoperability is and is not and the forces shaping the discussion
  • Recognize the time sensitive nature of the discussion and why organizations should care
  • Summarize ways technology will play a strategic role in differentiating an organization in the marketplace
  • Identify the key elements to consider when devising an interoperability strategy
