CSRI leaders are facilitating conversations about the health data utility model

SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HIE–Leaders with the Consortium for State and Regional Interoperability (CSRI), a collection of the nation’s largest and most robust nonprofit health data networks, will drive dialogue about the health data utility model (thecsri.org/health-data-utility) at The Civitas 2022 Annual Conference, a Collaboration with the DirectTrust Summit, which convenes in San Antonio, from Aug. 21 to 24.

The health data utility is an aspirational model where the public or government entity serves the health data needs of the state, private sector, and academia.

“We are excited about the opportunity to meet our health data network colleagues at The Civitas 2022 Annual Conference, a Collaboration with the DirectTrust Summit,” said Morgan Honea, Executive Vice President of Denver-based Contexture (the umbrella organization of health data networks in Colorado and Arizona) and President of CSRI.

“From Jaime Bland’s session on the health data utility and public health partnerships to John Kansky’s session on leveraging health data utilities for public health, conference attendees will gain foundational knowledge and insights about the health data utility model. Attendees will take home lessons about using state policy levers, engaging broad stakeholder groups in participation and community engagement, and maturing use cases with Medicaid and public health, while maintaining high standards for data privacy and security.”
