 Session Abstract – PMWC Silicon Valley

There is a massive amount of data needs to be shared and made accessible to improve survival outcomes and quality of life for patients. There are many dimensions to this aspect besides patient-driven interoperability which includes public health, research data, clinical trial data, and data from various devices. Specific challenges aside, at the core is the question of how interoperable the system in question truly is. This session will cover various grounds of interoperability for value-based care.
