I am not a professional in your field, however, I have a long-term interest in the cost of health care.
Is there any current or approaching management system, including interoperability, that might reduce costs in a dramatic fashion?

Gary:

Yes, I and others believe interoperability will go a long way in reducing costs just as it has in the banking, airline and other industries. While there are up-front costs for the technology it will ultimately help improve quality and safety and reduce and eliminate inefficiencies. This will lead to better utilization of resources and help increase access to necessary care.

Thank you for asking!
