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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of interoperability in delivering improved clinical and financial outcomes but also in placing patients at the center of health and care.
  • Highlight the Consortium’s key objectives and strategies to accelerate interoperability.
  • Illustrate why this effort aligns with the current needs and state of the health industry around the world.

Attending this session will earn you Continuing Educational Credits for CAHIMS and CPHIMS as well as accreditation by the ICN and CPD. To apply for accreditation, please click here.
