A Framework for Measuring Digital Health Interoperability

In April 2017, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) published a Proposed Interoperability Standards Measurement Framework that aims to define the measures to track how interoperability standards are contained in health IT products and services, and the subsequent use and/or customization of these standards by end users.

Working in concert with the HIMSS Interoperability & Health Information Exchange (I&HIE) Committee, the HIMSS Standards Advisory Task Force, which is comprised of specialized multi-stakeholder industry experts, reviewed and commented on the proposed framework.   The summary can be viewed here.
