. The report expresses a shared commitment and vision for achieving interoperability among health information systems, working with policymakers and other stakeholders.

To do that, we need information systems that give both patients and care providers access to all the patient’s health records and data. Patients, consumers and providers need to know their data is private, secure and available to achieve high quality care outcomes,” said Sr. Carol Keehan, President and CEO.
