KLAS hosting interoperability summit

The second annual Cornerstone Summit will focus on expanding interoperability measurements

KLAS is bringing together a forum of healthcare leaders from multiple areas of perspective and expertise for the 2016 Cornerstone Summit, which aims to further efforts to meaningfully measure interoperability through evaluation and appropriate expansion based on the work of the 2015 Keystone Summit.

The focus of the summit will be to establish a long-term road map for the measurement of interoperability progress, with the focus on effective and efficient delivery of care. The group will consider the broader continuum of care, interoperability standards, and current and future healthcare IT regulation. Participants will also review preliminary results of previously established measurements, identify gaps in the current measurement methodology and make recommendations for modifications, as needed.

The Summit will be held August 24–25, 2016 at Snowbird Resort in Utah. Executives from several healthcare provider organizations, top HIT vendors, the ONC, CommonWell, CHIME, AMDIS, Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative, The Sequoia Project and AMIA, as well as other government agencies and associations, will be in attendance.

“We are excited to bring together such a diverse and well-respected group of healthcare leaders, who share a common commitment to advance interoperability measurement,” said Tim Zoph, chair of the Interoperability Measurement Advisory Team (IMAT). “Our conference will review the results of our initial measurement framework, build a performance scorecard for the industry and create a long-term measurement roadmap paving the ward towards a more interoperable healthcare system.”
