Challenges of Interoperability in Healthcare

At AHIMA’s annual conference, I had a chance to sit down with Steve Bonney, VP of Business Development and Strategy at BayScribe. In this video interview, Steve and I discuss the challenges of getting structured data in healthcare and how you can use good technology to get the healthcare data without disrupting the physician workflow. Steve also discusses some of the benefits of having interoperable data in healthcare. Then, I ask him if Meaningful Use is going to make structured, interoperable data a reality.

If you’re interested in healthcare data exchange or interoperability, then you’ll enjoy this video.
