The impact of interoperability with Nick Knowlton, vice president, strategic initiatives, ResMed and board chairman, CommonWell Health Alliance

Introduction For this episode of the Post-Acute POV, our host Navin Gupta, SVP of the home and hospice division at MatrixCare, is joined by Nick Knowlton, vice president, strategic initiatives, ResMed, and board chairman, CommonWell Health Alliance, to explain the impact of interoperability. Listen in as Nick and Navin review the findings from our recent survey which polled 100 health systems and physician groups, 300 home-based care organizations spanning home health, hospice, palliative care, and private duty, and for the first time, 300 skilled nursing facilities.

Can your system provide insight into mid-episode encounters patients are having? How can your system help with PDGM or navigating palliative care programs? How is your system able to communicate the quality of care back to referral sources both actively and passively? Will your system work for my local geography and current referral source relationships? Ask your vendors about the usual business questions too – Is there a high surcharge to connect? Is it part of my core software package? Is the value aligned with the cost? Topics discussed during today’s episode: [02:50 – 04:48]: What is interoperability and what problem does it solve? [05:41 – 09:22]: The survey found that 95% of providers say they believe interoperability is crucial, compared to 34% in the previous year. Nick explains what he attributes this jump in better understanding the ...
