HL7: On the Path to Interoperability

Webinar

Apr 28, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

HL7 is growing as a wide-ranging solution to the requirement for improved interoperability. But merely conforming to HL7 specifications is not enough to deliver superior ITperformance. This webinar will provide an update through insights into the Standards and explore the steps that healthcare providers are taking in building optimized HL7 application environments.

After an insightful update and examination of HL7 from a standards perspective, this educational session will discuss strategies that are working in service assurance.  Strategies that will be discussed include building bridges with other departments and assessing business needs.  Attendees will learn how HL7 can be leveraged for optimized IT service assurance.  

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Overview of HL7 standards
  • The role of HL7 toward achieving health data interoperability
  • How they differ and where they're used
  • Insight into how HL7 is evolving, particularly with the rapid adoption of HL7 FHIR Restful services
  • How to leverage HL7 to uncover the full context of IT service anomalies across multiple layers which may be contributing to slow application response times and poor user experience in transmitting health information.  That is, health information such as administrative and clinical data between hospital information systems could include:
    • Reduce time to pinpoint source of interoperability issues
    • Troubleshoot network slowdowns rapidly
    • Improve analysis of HL7 interoperability services
    • Decrease analysis time of message sender and receiver issues
  • Learn about the benefits of leveraging IT service assurance technology to achieve benefits for HL7 in healthcare environments:
    • Quickly and Efficiently Triage Service Degradations for HL7 and Other Healthcare Applications
    • Assure High Quality Patient-care User Experience
    • Improve IT Team Collaboration
    • Reduce Monitoring and Vendor Management Complexities and Costs
