unUGM Welcome

Start the day with introductions and an overview of goals for the meeting.

Connecting & Collaborating with the Epic Users Near You

Get a crash course on all the options for exchanging patient data with providers in your community and for patient-directed exchange – including Care Everywhere, EpicCare Link, Connect, Direct Messaging, Share Everywhere, and Lucy. Learn the capabilities and limitations of each method and next steps to get started.

Lunch and Meet the Developers

Network with your unUGM peers and visit unstructured Q&A stations where you can meet the Epic developers working on the interoperability initiatives you learned about in the morning session.

Provider Interoperability Panel

Steven Lane, MD, MPH, Clinical Informatics Director, Privacy, Information Security & Interoperability, Sutter; Katherine Lusk, MHSM, RHIA, FAHIMA, Children’s Health System of Texas; and David Camitta, CMIO, Dignity Health
A panel of leaders who have been successful with various interoperability options share their experiences and take your questions.

Sharing for Improved Population Health, Accountable Care, and Shared Savings

Peg Horner, Epic
Using the current state of coordinated care in the US as a starting point, learn existing ways your Epic-using community partners can work with you to fill care gaps, improve communication, and reduce costs. See what a shared population health record looks like and discuss how you can contribute to accountable team-based care, while remaining independent.
