GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 27, 2020) — The foundation of a healthy and seamless care journey is built on interoperability. In order to improve outcomes and ease transitions of care, technology integration must be prioritized by all healthcare providers.

On Tuesday, September 29th at 1:00 pm ET, AJ Peterson, Vice President and General Manager of Interoperability at Netsmart, Sharon Hicks, Senior Associate at OPEN MINDS, and Michael George, Director of Information Technology for Lutheran Senior Services (LSS), will present the executive web briefing, ‘Delivering Better Care Through Better Coordination.’ The speakers will discuss the importance of provider coordination throughout transitions of care.

Through care coordination, data sharing and a consumer-first approach, agencies can avoid risky transitions, siloed information, unnecessary data re-entry, and inefficient workflows. Interoperability and whole-person care help to improve outcomes while ensuring the individual receives the best care in the shortest amount of time. By using a single, integrated electronic health record (EHR), providers in all care settings gain a comprehensive view of the consumer, allowing them to effectively treat the whole person.

During this web briefing, attendees will learn how technology can enable smooth transitions of care while relieving clinical burden and improving health and financial outcomes.

Registration for this executive web briefing is free of charge, courtesy of Netsmart, and brought to you by OPEN MINDS. If you are unable to attend, please still register. At the end of the event, all registrants will receive a recorded copy of the executive web briefing and presentation slides. Register at:
