From Field to Fed II: Linking Systems to Sustain Interoperability in Challenging Times


With the states and federal government engaged in a fundamental shift in how healthcare is accessed, delivered and funded, we convened a think tank of more than 100 senior leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors for a rigorous exchange of ideas about how to best pursue national health and human service interoperability.

Innovative leaders from the Administration for Children & Families/HHS, Centers for Medicaid and Medicare, Food and Nutrition, and other federal, state and local agencies shared advancements in information technology that have fueled change, and discussed ways to leverage shared services that link data systems, improve service coordination, streamline business processes, enhance operations and support better decision making, to prevent the tsunami of change in healthcare reform from overwhelming interoperability efforts in human services. Discussions and ideation sessions focused on ways to build and share the infrastructure necessary to reduce administrative burden, lower operational costs and improve service coordination. During the conference we introduced new federal technology initiatives that have the potential to radically change the field, including National Human Services Interoperability Architecture and Human Services National Information Exchange Model.

We also discussed President Obama’s Executive Order 13563: “Administrative Flexibility, Lower Costs, and Better Results for State, Local, and Tribal Governments,” to develop a deeper understanding of its implications for conference participants and their clients.
