Ever since I first saw Fred Trotter’s post about CONNECT being the future of EMR interoperability, I was really interested in the open source software CONNECT. Of course, when the PR person from ONC emailed me with an opportunity to talk with someone from ONC, I jumped at the chance.

The following is a short video where I tried to capture what ONC is doing with NHIN and CONNECT so that people can be more informed on these 2 projects. I hope you enjoy:
