In this third video of our FHIR®-Side Chat series, industry experts, John Kelly and Navin Gupta, discuss the postponement of the payer to payer mandate requirements and whether health plans should continue to move forward with investing in payer to payer interoperability in absence of the final rule.

During this 10-minute discussion, John and Navin offer up their recommendations on whether health plans should continue to invest in payer to payer interoperability, what to consider in moving forward, and the impacts of becoming interoperable with other payers sooner rather than later.
