WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- JULY 10, 2020: Just this week, CMS Administrator Seema Verma said the COVID-19 pandemic has “exposed a lot of inefficiencies” in the healthcare system -- with one of the largest being data sharing and access. Data sharing is critical, not just for patient care, but for contact tracing efforts to track the spread of the virus. Interoperability and patient matching have been a longstanding issue in healthcare but the pandemic has shown us that we can't wait a second longer to fix the problem. Please join us for a webinar to hear lessons learned from New York about the importance of data sharing during public health emergencies.

Webinar discussion topics will include:

  • Sharing patient data with emergency response agencies and the role having a strong data foundation played in enabling rapid response
  • Perspective on the pandemic from the NYC Health Department, Office of Emergency Preparedness and Response
  • How two of NY's public HIE's assisted in patient & family reunification efforts
  • Contact tracing and the role of personal data
  • Lessons learned and plans for the next potential wave
