15 interoperability geeks to watch

March 26, 2015 in Medical Technology

As National Coordinator for Healthcare Information Technology, DeSalvo put interoperability center stage when she released on Jan. 30, an interoperability roadmap along with rules of engagement. “Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap Draft Version 1.0″ outlines steps “that will enable a majority of individuals and providers across the care continuum to send, receive, find and use a common set of electronic clinical information at the nationwide level by the end of 2017.”

In September 2014, when she spoke at the AHIMA annual convention, she promised an audience of AHIMA members the government would act “fast into interoperability.” She drew applause when she added, “We cannot wait for 10 years to get this done.”
