Interoperability Now Needs To Go Beyond EHRs To Include The Larger Digital Health Ecosystem
The next step in the evolution of interoperability will involve examining data flows in digital healthcare, according to panelists at the American Telemedicine Association's annual conference. This includes looking into how data sharing will support telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and programs involving wearables.
It’s extremely important to look at how interoperability is going to have that data flow from one system to the other. This is especially true if patients are going to different entities that are not on the same EHR system. The data flow considerations do not stop at telehealth alone. There are others, like deciding where data collected from remote patient monitoring devices or wearables will be stored and how that data will be shared.
