Achieving Interoperability


Let’s talk about interoperability.

Google defines it as “the ability of computer systems or software to exchange and make use of information.”

But what does that actually mean? 

At MDabstract, it means delivering accurate, usable data to healthcare organizations so physicians can focus on patient care.

Doesn’t that sound great? 

Achieving interoperability is the Holy Grail for everyone in healthcare IT and has been the aim for a very long time.

Five years ago, the ONC released their “Connecting Health and Care for the Nation: A Shared Nationwide Interoperability Roadmap.” Their goal was for physicians to have the seamless ability to access and use health information from different sources; additionally, they wanted it to be done in a way that provides a longitudinal picture of their patients’ health.

And that’s great! But there is still much work to do for this to be realized.

The seamless ability to move clinical data from one system to another, and for that data to reach its final destination as discreet information that is usable to the provider; minable for administrators; and accessible for patients remains a challenge.

Having accurate, discreet, patient historical data at the point of care is critical to diagnose, treat, and achieve optimal health outcomes.

That’s why every organization must have a strategy to close the interoperability gap and ensure physicians have the patient data they need, when they need it.

Don’t let your healthcare organization struggle anymore with the gap between where your documentation is and where you would like it to be.
