The Technologies of Interoperability and Moving Towards a Unified Future
March 7, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Kelly Patrick, Managing Director, Nick Wong, Senior Manager, Mitchell Bailey, Senior Manager, and Alan Vitale, Specialist Master, Deloitte Consulting, LLP. Seamless interoperability, both within an organization and externally-facing systems, is the “ideal state” healthcare enterprises are searching for. This capability paves the way for health systems to access all relevant information at the points of care throughout the health care continuum, regardless of geographical, organizational, and vendor boundaries. Because the starting and end points, as well as business models and goals are different for every organization, there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Interoperability requires a varying combination of strategies, architectures, standards, approaches, data types, security, and tools that unify information access. Kelly, Nick, Mitchell and Alan discuss how industry experience, government policy, standards, technologies, and organizations contribute to being a connected health system.
