Focus Ahead for Better Health

The Interoperability Evolution in Healthcare

Strategies and expert discussion on the journey to person-centered interoperability.

Access to current and accurate data is a key driver of success in value-based care arrangements, making person-centered interoperability essential now and into the future as healthcare reform continues to transform our industry.

As information becomes readily available when and where it’s needed, a person-centered approach to interoperability allows healthcare organizations to facilitate care coordination, drive physician alignment, reduce administrative complexity and engage patients in their care to achieve better population health.

There is still work to be done in driving toward true person-centered interoperability — where information follows the patient regardless of where care is delivered, and is electronically accessible to the patient and any provider.

To find the latest news, as well as insights that can improve your interoperability efforts, we invite you to explore these resources, featuring perspectives and discussions with healthcare interoperability experts across key segments of our industry.

Interoperability is an evolutionary — not revolutionary — process. Explore our Interoperability Maturity Model to learn more.
