From Field to Fed: Building an Interoperable Continuum Of Care


Cross-sector innovations at city, county and state levels, paired with new leadership at the federal level, offered a renewed sense of possibility as thought leaders from across the country convened at the 2010 conference to discuss innovations in interoperable health, education and human services delivery.

Through presentations, discussions and case studies, we explored advancements that span service silos and increase joint planning among all levels of government and nonprofit agencies to foster more effective service delivery models. We examined federal initiatives driven by new funding for health and Medicaid technology (MITA) that support integrated planning between health and human services.

Another critical topic covered in 2010: strategies and practices for cross-sector information sharing in light of privacy laws’ ability to enable or inhibit interoperability initiatives. The momentum of these discussions spurred Addressing the Myth and Reality of Confidentiality and Privacy in Cross System Information Sharing, a conference collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania’s Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice and Research and Stewards of Change, where leaders from agencies nationwide focused on sharing best practices in confidentiality and information sharing.
