In this episode, the Chair of the Interoperability & Standards (I&S) Committee, Dr. Keith Salzman walks us through the definition of Interoperability in health IT. This definition was approved by the HIMSS Board of Directors on April 5, 2013. Keith also gives examples of healthcare operations that correlate to each of the three levels of interoperability: 1) Foundational; 2) Structural; and 3) Semantic.
