Dr. Don Rucker talks the Future of Interoperability with AJMC’s Managed Care Cast

What’s Coming Up Next in Interoperability 

An unprecedented level of detail and robustness around interoperability standards is on its way, and on a recent episode of Managed Care Cast, AJMC speaks with 1upHealth’s Chief Strategy Officer and the former National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in HHS, Don Rucker, MD, about what the opportunities and responsibilities for payers are.

The change is precipitated by 2020 rulemaking regarding the 21st Century Cures Act requirement regarding application programming interfaces. The new requirement will enable access to patient-level data across a patient population, allowing for more analysis that can inform clinical decisions, track those decisions to costs, and even influence future policy.
