The Importance of Interoperability for Federal Health Organizations

In an increasingly fast-paced and complex digital world, the ability of different information technology systems and software applications to communicate, exchange data, and use that information is becoming increasingly vital. Achieving greater speed and efficiency through an enriched data exchange framework will permit greatly enhanced data sharing across clinicians, labs, hospitals, pharmacies, and patients regardless of the application or application vendor.

When disparate systems can work in tandem to share patient data seamlessly across all networks, within and across organizational boundaries, providers are able to advance the effective delivery of healthcare for individuals and communities. In essence, any healthcare professional from anywhere in the world can access a patient’s records and provide treatment and care without delay.
