2020 HITC State Interoperability Insights Webinar Series
The 2020 State Healthcare IT Connect annual meeting was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a result of that, we’re going be taking many of the core topics, conversations from the in-person meeting, which was due to take place this week into a ‘Virtual Mini-Series‘ over the next 6 months, ahead of the re-scheduled dates of Dec 7-9 2020.
As part of the State HIT Connect virtual platform, we’re excited to kick off the first of seven ‘Interoperability Insights’ webinars ‘From Indiana to the National Accelerators: COVID-19 and Interoperability for a Better Path forward’.
The session is, co-hosted with Daniel Stein and the National Interoperability Collaborative. The presentation is about, not only learning about API-enabled models, and solutions being developed to accelerate interoperability but to explore over two hours, linkages to public health crises, and introduce opportunities for attendees to really ‘get involved’ in the innovation that will underpin the next phase of healthcare transformation.
The purpose of the session is to hopefully provide participants with: Introduction to the themes, topics, and available resources for improving data interoperability across multiple domains, including a preview of the Interoperability Institute’s InterOpathon Insights into the work of Indiana’s Rapid Response “Data Coordination” Taskforce. High-Level Understanding of HL7’s FHIR Accelerator Program, through DaVinci Project, Gravity Project, Carin, as well as NIC’s Project Unify.

Why: Because the pandemic makes collaboration and interoperability even more important!
Leaders of these efforts:
- provide an overview of their work;
- offer insights into practical ways for advancing information-sharing and interoperability; and, most pointedly,
- provide information and guidance aimed at addressing public health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The presentation includes:
- a preview of the Interoperability Institute’s InterOpathon, which will was held on May 28 and 29; participants in this exciting virtual event developed solutions for improving data interoperability across multiple domains.
- a presentation on the work of a Rapid Response “Data Coordination” Taskforce in Indiana, which works to inform and enable the state’s effort to combat COVID-19 across multiple agencies, providers, and community-based organizations.
- “ignite” talks about the projects in HL7’s FHIR Accelerator Program, as well as the Project Unify proof-of-concept.
All the webinars in this series are being designed to be highly interactive. That is, attendee discussion will be encouraged and built into the format, with the goal of learning from each other and then synthesizing the learning to enhance strategic action planning for better-addressing future public health emergencies.
