S3 Ep12: Data for Better Patient Interactions—featuring Jordan Penn

Never again will providers have to start from zero again.

In this episode, Jordan Penn, Senior Principal Sales Engineer at Inovalon, talks about how DataStream API can be a powerful digital integrated tool for care delivery and dives into the evolution of technologies of that sort in healthcare. DataStream API delivers patient-specific insights from existing EMRs to providers at the point of care to make the encounter more efficient and fruitful for both parties. Jordan provides a history lesson to explain how policies like the HITECH Act, the 21st Century Cures Act, and the FHIR standard have enabled better interoperability and access within the healthcare sector. On those connectivity grounds, DataStream API can serve clinically rich data in a better way to improve healthcare interactions.

Tune in and learn about Inovalon’s digital solution that will make healthcare work easier for everybody!
