  2. 2. EHR Now: The United States is in the midst of investing in large scale electronic health record interoperability. The goal is to ensure EHR products are able to share information with one another, from the exam room to the operating room, and from one medical facility to another. The beauty of EHR interoperability is that medical information will be available anytime it’s needed by anyone who needs it. Unfortunately getting to the interoperable stage is no easy task and all the major players have spent countless time and money attempting to meet interoperability goals. It is now time to put all these major players in the same room and discuss the potential of EHR interoperability and what it means to each and every job function involved.
