One of the big challenges healthcare faces is sharing data between healthcare organizations who need that data. Healthcare interoperability, as we call it, has been a challenge for a long time. However, we’ve known that it is much less of a technical challenge and more of a business challenge.
To better understand where healthcare interoperability is happening in healthcare and where we still have work to do, I sat down with Drew Ivan, Chief Product & Strategy Officer at Lyniate. For those not familiar with Lyniate, it’s the coming together of the two leading healthcare integration engine companies: Corepoint and Rhapsody. Needless to say, they have first hand experience with interoperability in healthcare with thousands of customers sending hundreds of millions of messages every day.
Here’s a look at some of the questions we discuss in our interview:
- What have we learned about healthcare interoperability in the time of COVID-19?
- What are some examples where interoperability is really happening in healthcare today?
- What does it take to make interoperability a reality?
- Are there some sure fire signs that you know an interoperability project isn’t going to work?
Along with the above topics, I loved how Drew Ivan framed out multiple definitions of interoperability including: organizational interoperability, device interoperability, cross-organizational interoperability, and patient interoperability. Check out the video interview below to hear how he framed it and how you can help make interopability a reality in your organization.
