Manifest MedEx’s June Webinar – The Future of Interoperability: Is it the Health Data Utility Model?

Save the date for our upcoming webinar on Thursday, June 8 from 12 pm – 1:00 pm PT.

Our state’s investment in health data infrastructure through the CalHHS Data Exchange Framework and CalAIM initiatives could improve health and health equity for generations of Californians. But this is achievable only if all providers across the care continuum – small and large, rural and urban – can seamlessly exchange health information for all Californians, including the most vulnerable who rely on Medi-Cal, Medicare, and public health support.

Like California, other states have bold goals for transforming care, with some of the most advanced states pursuing a health data utility model (HDU). Health data utilities are locally governed, public-private resources serving as intermediaries for the exchange of robust clinical and non-clinical data.

What could the HDU model look like in California? How are our existing efforts to build health data infrastructure already aligned with this framework? What are some lessons learned from other states pursuing the HDU model? How do these state efforts align with federal efforts through TEFCA – and where do HDUs go beyond national networks (at least currently)?

Join our panel of experts to learn more about the HDU model/framework, alignment between state and federal health infrastructure efforts, and bold possibilities for the future of interoperability in California and across the country.
