IT healthcare interoperability A BUSINESS RESEARCH
So what is this about? Have a picture on the global landscape of IT Healthcare Interoperability Finding what standards are being used by vendors ◦How they use them? How do they connect with each other? How can we bring value to GPs and hospitals ◦Value is something we can measure as an improvement ◦IT (in business) that does not add value is worthless How do we develop a solution that brings value and allows us to bring interoperability
What have we found? A wish turn into a need ◦ Sharing patient information without any hassle both horizontal and vertically Attempts have been made before but faced several issues ◦Everyone has different needs! (even among GPs) ◦They still needed new systems to improve their processes ◦So everything was custom made A “temporal patch” which were trying to get rid off ◦Because now we’ve got these “information silos”
Why is this important? (and interesting) It is all about improving Patient Care ◦From a simple cold to chronic degenerative diseases. 40+ years dealing with these problems Many bodies is involved: from the WHO to local governments ◦As well as standards organizations: HL7, ISO, ASTM, IHE + national organizations How do we connect all healthcare in a country? ◦How about healthcare worldwide? Countless man-hour have already been invested ◦Directly or indirectly funded by governments (which is your money)
Our interest? Understand the healthcare standards arena Understand how to connect organizations (GPs and hospitals mainly) Add value to GPs ◦By improving the speed and quality of the information they transfer ◦And therefore the service they provide to you.
