This library has walked us through what interoperability is, and some of the standards that are critical to achieving it. But what does interoperability look like in the real world? How are systems and stakeholders working to achieve it? This section of our resource library will provide examples of the technology and workflows that lend to the electronic exchange of health information, and national interoperability approaches and organizations that currently are driving efforts to a more interoperable health ecosystem.
For up to date information on where the United States stands on their progress to achieve health IT interoperability, please check out the ONC Health IT Dashboard for current metrics on adoption and use.
Got feedback? We would love to hear from you. Please send comments & submit ideas for new content here!
