As the coronavirus pandemic began to take hold of the world, much of the conversation understandably focused on federal and state responses. For most people, the role of health information technology remained hidden behind staggering infection rates and death tolls. But interoperability, it turns out, proved to be critical in coordinating the public health response.   We spoke with Jay Nakashima, executive director of eHealth Exchange (https://ehealthexchange.org/) , to learn how his organization retooled its focus to respond to the coronavirus pandemic. What we found was noteworthy in several ways:   ·      The health information network connected healthcare provider organizations to public health agencies in a seamless manner that supported a stronger response than would have otherwise been obtainable. ·      The eHealth Exchange launched initiatives that enabled healthcare organizations, physicians, and patients to regain some sense of agency at a time when almost everything seemed out of their control. ·      Interoperability emerged as important in a time of pandemic as it is in times of peace.   But how did the eHealth Exchange, whose data network connects federal and non-federal organizations, wage its coronavirus response campaign? In this episode of InterSystems Healthy Data, Nakashima discusses electronic case reporting, advance care plans and directives, and new take on the Patient Unified Lookup System for Emergencies, better known as PULSE.   Of course, the United States and other nations still have work to do to achieve seamless, comprehensive interoperability. Nakashima also weighs in on how healthcare and technology leaders can advance the cause and why they must, even after COVID-19 enters the history books.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
