Healthcare Interoperability

In this interview, Healthcare Scene sat down with 2 experts on healthcare interoperability. We talk about why interoperability isn’t a reality in healthcare today and why government regulation and certification hasn’t solved the healthcare interoperability problem. Plus, we talk about the role of healthcare interoperability testing in order to ensure scalable interoperability. We also talk about the FHIR standard and its potential in healthcare.

In this “after party” discussion we dive into more of the details around healthcare interoperability including things like genomic health data interoperability. We also talk about the HIMSS 2016 Annual Conference and the HIMSS Interoperability showcase.
