NATE/HIE Conference – NATE easing Patient Engagement in Health Care

Aaron Seib is presenting the work of NATE (The National Association of Trusted Exchange) and the BlueButton Trust Bundle for Consumer Facing Applications at the NATE/HIE Conference in Deer Valley UT.

The inaugural members of the trust bundle, which includes Medyear, are at this conference. The NATE BlueButton Trust bundle makes it easy for health systems to establish a trusted connection with patients through client facing applications. Check out the NBB4C.

Since Patient Engagement is seen as one of the major factors in achieving meaningful change in healthcare this is a critical development.

NATE is helping to address 4 major barriers:
1. NBB4C is not ubiquitous across provider organizations
2. EMR workflows aren’t designed to receive data from consumers
3. Need to motivate consumers to get involved (by making it easier for them to get involved)
4. A Common on-ramp is needed for consumers, Providers and Payers. (Virtual Clipboard).
