With a clear message that the federal government is requiring interoperability across the care continuum, hospice and home health providers, large and small, are no longer exempt. In this webinar, Kno2, the leading provider of interoperability, will bring clarity to recent legislation, the impact interoperability has in your facility and outline how Complia Health—a top home health and hospice technology solutions provider—and Kno2 are making it easy for you in the midst of a quickly changing landscape. You will not get there overnight, but we will deliver tangible steps you can take immediately to progress your organization beyond the fax machine.
