1: #carecoordination Be the Change … or the Change Will Be Forced on You w/ Dr. Joe Parks


The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) has published a final version of the 21st Century Cures Act regarding interoperability in information blocking. It includes parameters of compliance for health information technology. The ONC is also looking for provider transparency to stimulate innovation in healthcare and thus establish and enable interoperability in a much bigger fashion.  

The result? Unprecedented access to data. 

In this episode of NetSmart, AJ Peterson, vice president and general manager of NetSmart Technologies, talks with Dr. Joe Parks, medical director for The National Council for Behavioral Health and distinguished research professor of science at Missouri Institute of Mental Health with the University of Missouri, St. Louis. 

What AJ and Joe discussed:  

  • How providers will manage the higher volume of data to make it meaningful 
  • The risks of patients gaining greater access to data 
  • How access to data supports the acceleration of reimbursement models 
  • How the standard of practice will change as a result of interoperability initiatives and greater access to data
