California Interoperability Symposia – 2013


In 2013, Stewards of Change Consulting and our partner Alexan International worked with the California HHS Agency, and its County partners, under the auspices of the State Systems Integration and Interoperability Project (SSIIP) to develop an interoperability vision and roadmap for HHS programs and services. As part of this work, the SOC team delivered two State-wide HHS Interoperability Symposia.  The first event, held in May 2013, aimed to reach the following objectives:

  • Starting the process toward a roadmap for information sharing, interoperability and service improvements among HHS agencies throughout California;

  • Identifying real and perceived barriers to information sharing that can be surmounted through innovations in program management and policy-making, with a focus on resolving issues inherent in the protection of confidential information;

  • Developing an understanding of the emerging governance, legal and technological models that will enable information exchange in the future; and,

  • Creating connections among attendees to accelerate the sharing and adoption of a vision and strategy for building a state-wide interoperable infrastructure across HHS.

 

The second State-wide Interoperability Symposium, held in October 2013, was focused on completing the State-wide HHS interoperability plan and producing a flexible, sustainable governance structure to support implementation of that plan.
