“Interoperability” in health care means that information and communications are shared across technology platforms and health provider offices. It specifically includes the hardware, software, integrated technologies, related licenses, technical information, or services and standards necessary to share relevant health data securely and accurately in response to an enrollee, or enrollee’s health care provider’s request for health information, or a third party acting on behalf of a provider.
In California CCPA is supporting AB 2352 (the PRICE Act) which will make prescription drug cost and coverage information available at the point-of-care, preventing delays in care and medication nonadherence for the patient while reducing administrative burden on providers.
Physicians are then able to have meaningful conversations with their patients about affording their treatment plan or other appropriate alternatives. The Price Act enables decision-making to occur where it should – between a patient and their physician.
