Interoperability 101: What You Need to Know in Kansas  

Thursday, October 14th | 4:15 PM – 5:30 PM

Despite being a buzz word that is frequently cited when referring to technology and data exchange, interoperability remains a deeply complex topic that is not always widely understood. While originally developed for the healthcare space, interoperability is vital for the home and community-based services (HCBS) and long-term services and supports (LTSS) landscape to promote person-centeredness, increase transparency into coordination of care, and improve overall quality and outcomes. During this session, the presenter will: 

• Define interoperability and its many benefits  

• Answer the question, “what does interoperability mean for me?” 

• Provide use cases to demonstrate interoperability in LTSS and specifically in Kansas 

• Highlight the relevant federal policies 

• Explore security considerations
