We continue our limited Inside Health Care series, A View from the Summit, featuring interviews recorded in person with speakers and staff from NCQA’s first Health Innovation Summit. In this mini episode, we feature part of an interview with Summit speaker and interoperability expert Dr. Don Rucker.
This mini episode focuses on the efforts to make the exchange of digital health records and other data go from penciled pipe dream to streamlined reality.
