J2 Global Joins With HIMSS for an Interoperability Webinar Ahead of Annual Conference

Sponsored by Businesswire

J2 Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCOM) the leader in digital cloud faxing, will be hosting a webinar for HIMSS members and other invited guests on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at 1:00 pm CT. The webinar will educate viewers on the key pillars of interoperability technologies for secure health data exchange and announce a new interoperability platform to be unveiled by J2 Global at the HIMSS Annual Conference, March 9 – 12, 2020 in Orlando, FL.

Healthcare organizations have different technology options for secure data exchange, which can expand provider access to patient records and aid the industry transformation to value-based care. New rules recently proposed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are the most comprehensive and consequential for the future direction of Health IT since the HITECH Act set the basic table stakes of health information technology in 2009.

Learning Objectives for this webinar are:

1. Define the Role Direct Message has in Information Blocking

2. Understand the Value of Record Based Query in Transitions of Care

3. Learn how Cloud Fax meets the definition of Foundational Interoperability

4. Explain how APIs create a 360-degree View of the Patient

Moderating the webinar will be Brenda Hopkins, Chief Health Information Officer for J2 Cloud Services. Guest speaker Kathryn Wickenhauser, Head of Communications for Direct Trust, will discuss the value of direct messaging.
