Agencies who lead healthcare are constantly evaluating their plans for open access to healthcare records, interoperability, quality measurements, payment model and related methodologies. This panel will explore how are agencies are monitoring and learning from each other to define governance and increasing inoperability with quality focused patient data and records.
