Interoperability is the capability of different systems, including devices, applications, and products, to connect, communicate, and exchange information without any user interference. Interoperability among systems has various functions such as data access, data transmission, and cross-organizational collaboration irrespective of their origin. Interoperability in healthcare allows the exchange of health information among different healthcare professionals, organizations, and patients, regardless of the applications used. Data interoperability enables different systems to exchange their data or resources through local area networks (LANs) or wide area networks (WANs).

Technology is becoming increasingly woven into our daily lives, and the world of clinical trials is no exception: penetration of technology in clinical trials settings has been spectacular. As the industry has significantly increased its volume of data sources, vendors and systems, it is essential moving forward to better coordinate and connect technology systems and services to streamline clinical trial execution. As key players of clinical trials, clinical sites remain in need of using multiple technologies but are not necessarily experienced with the multiple systems they must use and express a clear need and desire for simplification. This can increase site and patient burden. This webinar from ClinOne and Kayentis, two partnering solution providers, will review key recommendations for successful systems integration, and will show, through insightful examples, the value that simple, interoperable platforms can have on patient- and site-experience when solution providers efficiently work together. It will also bring recommendations on what to do and what to avoid facilitating access, reduce redundancies and optimize data review, to bring more simplicity to clinical trial sites.
Health and care staff are continually making decisions that influence the quality of care for patients, and it is therefore essential that staff – whichever setting they work in – can see a patient’s relevant history. The NHS has a long history of difficulties with interoperability – sharing information – across the many settings that make up the health and care system and this has now become a greater challenge as we move into the era of integrated care systems (ICSs). Now more than ever, it is essential that digital systems enable seamless communication across health and care settings to underpin the integration of health and care services in a way that improves experiences for both patients and staff. The Digital technologies and interoperability: enabling the future of integrated care research project, currently under way at The King’s Fund, has found that there is a need for health and care leaders to communicate about why interoperability is important, to clarify expectations and to create transparency throughout the system to enable accessible ways of sharing information and communicating to thrive.

Despite a rising trend, we are still far away from digitized healthcare achieving its full potential around the world. During a single hospital stay, one patient has many contact points. In emergency and operating rooms, intensive care and step-down units, devices and systems generate volumes of data that are critical to clinical decisions. Many hospitals’ IT organizations have become systems integrators and can face a variety of interoperability challenges with fragmented healthcare systems and devices.
Join this webinar to hear industry experts sharing their interoperability strategy, and solutions available to address interoperability challenges, and ensure insight-rich data is put to meaningful and appropriate use, helping to transform the delivery of healthcare.

Health insurance providers have an opportunity to harness this requirement and expand their long-term strategic vision for a member-centric approach to data and operations. Taking a member-first approach to implementing the CMS rules and beyond has implications for health insurance providers’ technology systems and their internal operations. That decision also has implications for how health insurance providers choose their vendors and execute on the long-range vision.
