Despite being a buzzword that is frequently cited, 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 webinar, we will get down to the basics of interoperability to define what it is, why it’s important, the relevant federal policies, cybersecurity considerations, and specific use cases and examples.
