Reston, Va (PRWEB) February 15, 2016
WEDI, the nation’s leading authority on the use of health IT to create efficiencies in healthcare information exchange, announced the release of a survey to gauge industry feedback on the topics of the most interest to healthcare professionals. Specific topics related to the categories of healthcare administrative processes and efficiencies, operating rules, interoperability, privacy and security, and payment models will be measured. The survey results will be evaluated and used as a consideration for driving WEDI workgroup initiatives in the coming months.
Providers, health plans, vendors and clearinghouses are invited to participate in this survey anonymously, which is available here. The final submission deadline is March 11, 2016. Those that participate will receive a discount code for 15 percent off registration for WEDI’s 25th Annual National Conference, taking place May 23-26 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
