Interoperability and Data Considerations for Integrating with EHRs and Other Health Information Systems

May 14, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)


Breaking down the silos of health information so that patient data can be in the hands of their clinical team where and when they need it is something of a holy grail in medicine.  It’s also a key foundation for new Accountable Care models where decisions and outcomes can be tracked over long periods of time. Combined with new regulations from HHS on data sharing interoperability, there’s never been a better time to look at including interoperability as a core component of your next system release.  

However, developing a connected solution isn’t as simple as creating an API and imagining that everything will just work when integrating with a hospital. Everything from deployment models, IT resourcing, data formats & transformation, to which standards should you use, and much more, all need to be considered. 

This webinar session will walk you through:

The push to get outcomes data both on the device manufacturer and provider side. 

The opportunities for IoT device data (simplifying configuration, usage, and BI analytics).

Data de-identification strategies, and some of the challenges that come with it.

The evolution of interoperability standards, including the value of FHIR.

Take a look at the technology and infrastructure needed to manage health data.

Join Macadamian’s Director of Healthcare Technology, Geoff Parker and Mark Thompson, Healthcare Software Architect as they walk through the benefits of including data and interoperability as core elements in your product strategy.

Key Takeaways

An understanding of the challenges and benefits of developing a connected product.

Practical know-how on designing data-enabled products and services.

An understanding of different data formats, and where the industry is headed.

How to work with healthcare institutions when it comes to integrating your solution.

This webinar is for you if you are:

Developing healthcare software applications or connected medical devices and want to exchange information between your solution and other technologies within the healthcare ecosystem (eg. EHRs, RIS, LIS, PACS, etc.).
