Building a Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability

In early 2020, HIMSS, HL7 International, and IHE International announced the formation of the Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability. The objective of the Consortium is to enable national governmental agencies, health systems and their stakeholders to leverage emerging interoperability standards and the latest implementation guidance to improve at the same time clinical and financial outcomes by addressing barriers and accelerating the rapid, coordinated, efficient deployment of next-generation, API-based interoperable standards. This session will discuss the importance of interoperability deployment at the patient point of care to boost digital health innovations and efficiency.
