Kaiser & SETMA have proven colveusicnly that EHR & interoperability improves health outcomes and reduces the cost of care when done right. The CMS Physicians Quality Reporting Initiatives and the National Quality Forum have best practices to inform a clinical guidance system. Agree that a standardized clinical vocabulary is essential for interoperability, and that is being advanced as we speak. The progress in the public/private accomplishments of Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise at the interoperability connect-a-thon this year is evidence that we are in drive on interoperability.
