HIMSS Medication Adherence Roundtable: Coordinating Medical and Pharmacy Data to Improve the Use of Medicines


As the U.S. healthcare system evolves from reimbursement based solely on volume to paying for improved outcomes and value, the demand for increaased data sharing and true interoperabliity is increasing. The 21st Century Cures and MACRA laws both included provisions on reaching interoperability and eliminating information blocking practices. A recent provision, signed into law as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act, that facilitates data sharing between Medicare Parts A, B and D aims to bridge the gap between medical and pharmacy sites of service. 

P4HA joined HIMSS to host a roundtable at the annual conference to provide an opportunity for participants to discuss the growing need for technology solutions to build a bridge between patients' clinical and pharmaceutical data in order to improve care coordination, medication adherence and patient health outcomes.
