McLean, VA – September 25, 2015 – The Sequoia Project’s CEO, Mariann Yeager, will participate in a panel on Monday, September 28 regarding health information exchange (HIE) hosted by the National Association for Trusted Exchange (NATE), the Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) and HUG. Ms. Yeager, representing both the eHealth Exchange and Carequality (Sequoia Project initiatives), will join Commonwell, addressing the topic of progress towards achieving nationwide interoperability, as well as how various national initiatives inter-relate.
“There’s been a lot of focus recently on the issues still standing in the way of health IT interoperability. Though there’s still a lot to do, I believe most people would be surprised by how much progress has actually been made,” said Mariann Yeager. “We can’t celebrate until we’ve fully achieved interoperability for care organizations of all sizes and types, but progress is real and rapid. Direct competitors are working together because this is a challenge of national significance with very personal implications.”
The event will take place in Park City, Utah, and serves as the NATE/SHIEC/HUG annual conference. More information about the event can be found at http://nate-trust.org/nate-shiec-hug-annual-hie-conference.
