Intermountain CEO Marc Harrison, MD, and Stan Huff, MD, Chief Medical Informatics Officer, were among approximately 35 people from a range of healthcare sectors invited to a special meeting at the White House on December 12.
The meeting—led by Jared Kushner, White House Advisor and Director of the Office of American Innovation, and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma—featured a broad discussion on making health records and data more easily shared.
Dr. Huff said topics discussed included ways to get data into patients’ hands, meaningful use, and improving electronic health records. He says the meeting was mostly a listening session, but helped lay the foundation for future work.
Dr. Harrison tweeted from the event: “Privileged to represent @Intermountain in a patient-centered conversation about EHR interoperability at the @WhiteHouse hosted by @SeemaCMS and Jared Kushner.”
