Event description

Description

Critical changes are underway for Meaningful Use, the federal program to encourage the purchase and "meaningful use" of electronic health records. These include reducing requirements for patient data access and portability in Meaningful Use Stage 2, and a proposed API for data sharing in Stage 3.

Health and Human Services needs to hear from digital health entrepreneurs and investors to get this right:

  • How can we ensure that the proposed API delivers on its promise to create an open health data ecosystem?

  • What will be the impact of walking back on patient data access and portability requirements?

Please join us over a beer to discuss these proposed changes, learn how to provide feedback in a way that can impact the regulatory process, and begin to formulate a shared and strong position.

This gathering is co-hosted by Health 2.0 and Code for America with special guest Claudia Williams, Senior Advisor for Health Technology and Innovation at the White House.
