Healthcare Interoperability Insights

I came across this great video by Diameter Health where Bonny Roberts talked with a wide variety of people at the interoperability showcase at HIMSS. If you want to get a feel for the challenges and opportunities associated with healthcare interoperability, take 5 minutes to watch this video:

What do you think of these healthcare interoperability perspectives? Does one of them stand out more than others?

I love the statement that’s on the Diameter Health website:

“We Cure Clinical Data Disorder”

What an incredible way to describe clinical data today. I’m not sure the ICD-10 code for it, but there’s definitely a lot of clinical data disorder. It takes a real professional to clean the data, organize the data, enrich the data, and know how to make that data useful to people. IT’s not a disorder that most people can treat on their own.

What’s a little bit scary is that this disorder is not going to get any easier. More data is on its way. Better to deal with your disorder now before it becomes a full on chronic condition.
