1. Part 1 :
- What is the impact of having information readily available
- What are the financial consequences
- What are the benefits of interoperability
- Challenges in integrating information where and when clinicians need it
Connected healthcare is a key agenda – the government, healthcare commissioners and providers are committed to enabling broad health information exchanges between the many settings within the healthcare economy, with the ultimate objective to deliver a better experience for the patient, improved health outcomes and a more cost-efficient system.
The NHS England Interoperability Handbook provides a description of the benefits of interoperability. It defines interoperability as:
“ the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged ”
Based on our expertise of the healthcare market we have developed a guide with an interactive theme called the 7 deadly sins of data integration and interoperability.
