A Turning Point: Interoperability 101

What do the new regulations mean for how healthcare data flows? OOP and Particle Health are partnering on this course that'll turn interoperability from a buzzword to the practical things to know for healthcare companies.

Interoperability, but understandable

In this course, we’ll delve deep into the realm of national interoperability including the regulatory landscape like the 21st Century Cures Act, how to decide which path you’re going to use to get patient data, current challenges with interoperability today, and real-world implementations of interoperability.

Meet Your Instructor,

Troy Bannister

Troy Bannister is the founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Particle Health. After spending 15 years in healthcare in multiple capacities: as an EMT, medical student, clinical researcher, and early-stage investor, Troy found a disturbing gap in patient rights & paper processes that digital solutions could fill. Troy is incredibly optimistic about the future, particularly as it relates to legislation and emerging data standards.

Course Syllabus & Schedule

Module 1

Day 1

Intro To Interoperability + Getting Healthcare Data

(10/4, 12-1 PM ET)

We'll go through what interoperability is, the regulatory history of interoperability, and the different standards. Then we'll go through some of the different ways you can access data, what data you can access, and some of the challenges that exist today with getting data.

Module 2

Day 2

Key Regulatory Changes and How Health Information Exchanges Work

(10/5, 12-1 PM ET)

Several laws and agreed upon standards like the 21st Century Cures Act and TEFCA are pushing interoperability forward. We'll talk about them, and then some of the technical details on how HIEs work and show how different types of data like ADT feeds flow through them.

Module 3

Day 3

Real-World Case Studies And The Future Of Interoperability

(10/6, 12-1 PM ET)

We'll go through some specific workflows today where interoperability and pulling health data via HIEs actually works. We'll also have some guest lecturers including Aneesh Chopra, the first CTO of the US who spearheaded many of hte interoperability efforts speak. Finally we'll talk about some of the upcoming things we can expect to change in the interoperabiltiy discussion (privacy, compliance, legal/ethical complications, etc.)
