ONC Launches Interoperability Proving Ground

March 18, 2016


Interoperability is happening, it's happening all across the country and we want to prove it! The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) recently launched the Interoperability Proving Ground (IPG), a centralized location where people are able to find what kinds of interoperability projects are occurring and where.  As an open, community platform where you can share, learn, and be inspired by interoperability projects, the IPG is a place to further connect the nation. We encourage you to leverage the IPG as a place to share your interoperability work, as well as find and develop new partnerships across the country.

The IPG is a simple four-step process:

 1) Project Name;

2) Project Description;

3) Labels (e.g., FHIR, Direct, C-CDA, etc.); and

4) Dates (optional)/Zip Code (required).

You will be required to create an account login in order to enter your project(s). This will also enable you to edit your projects as needed. We strongly encourage you to go to the IPG and enter in your interoperability projects and be a part of the growing interoperability community.
