New efforts such as the federal “My HealthEData” initiative, as well as Apple’s project to aggregate health information to its mobile devices using open standards, focus on solving interoperability and data liquidity issues across the healthcare ecosystem to advance person-centric, value-based care. In this NIC webinar/conversation, members of the CARIN Alliance will lead a discussion on the impact of these and other innovations on the healthcare industry, including the power of the consumer as an informed stakeholder. Our guest presenter will be Ryan Howells, a Principal at Leavitt Partners, which manages the CARIN Alliance. The conversation will be moderated by SOCI/NIC consultant, Adam Pertman
