One issue of key importance discussed over and over at HiMSS was Interoperability. Arien Malec, VP, Data Platform and Acquisition Tools at RelayHealth / McKesson joined me at HiMSS 16 to discuss RelayHealth and his work in this area. Arien is involved at a national policy level as a Co-Chair of the Health IT Standards Committee and a member of the Interoperability Standards Advisory Task Force. In this interview for Health Innovation Media Arien touches on a number of important topics including interoperability, HL7 FHIR, patient access to their medical records and McKesson’s recent participation in the White House Precision Medicine Initiative.
