Register Here to Attend the 5 day Virtual State Summit


COVID-19 has highlighted, as never before, the need to address healthcare
disparities for the nation's highest-risk patients often residing in some
of the most underserved communities. At the same time, states have
experienced a pace of change and innovation, often enabled through waiver
applications, and data sharing agreements processed in timeframes
previously thought unimaginable.

The pace of change and innovation is set to continue, with the CMS, and ONC
Interoperability rules laying the foundation, for a more citizen-centric
data ecosystem, and the ability to deliver care in a variety of settings,
across the health and human services continuum.

In an environment of significant state budget shortfalls, guidance to
deliver CMS’ vision for ‘outcomes-based transformation’ will further
provide guard rails for states to procure and deliver technology projects
in a way that delivers on both organizational goals, policy objectives.
States have clearly communicated that they don’t want to back slip to how
things were, they can see the opportunity for embracing interoperability,
harnessing new innovation and vendor partnerships in a way that delivers
outcomes and the opportunity to transform the citizen experience.
