The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) is hosting the 2nd Interoperability Forum on August 6th- 8th, 2018 in Washington, DC.  This event will bring people together from ONC, our federal partners, the healthcare industry, and the technology sector to:

  • Learn about recent efforts to advance interoperability nationwide
  • Identify concrete actions in response to current interoperability barriers

Attendees will hear keynotes from industry influencers and have the opportunity to view demos showcasing innovative solutions. On the second day, attendees will participate in tracks focused on various aspects of interoperability such as the deployment of application programming interfaces (APIs), improving clinicians’ experience with interoperability, patient matching, security and more.  Attendees will have the option to remain in the same track the entire day or select morning and afternoon sessions from different tracks on a first come, first serve basis.  

Co-led by industry leaders and supported by ONC experts, the tracks will provide an opportunity to discuss the latest issues and identify actions that can be taken to address key barriers to interoperability in a group setting.  On the third and final day of the meeting, key next steps and highlights from the day-long tracks will be reported out by track leads to all attendees.
