Open Forum: Pushing the Frontiers of Interoperability to Community-Based Care

June 13, 2019
15:30 - 16:30
Room 208
Data is the blood of health systems. And interoperability the key to promoting a healthy circulation of information between all stakeholders. The integration of primary, secondary and social care through connected interoperable infrastructures and processes is one of the tangible examples of how interoperability can promote data-driven pathways, upgraded quality and patient safety, improved clinical and financial outcomes, and empowered patients and users. While creating an interoperable flow of data between hospitals is still a challenge, bringing care to the community represents a new frontier for interoperability. Technology is an important piece of the puzzle, but not the only one. How do we integrate a complex web of heterogeneous stakeholders, align their incentives and make sure it is in everyone's interest to make information interoperable? Strong governance and the alignment of all stakeholders is crucial. With a highly participative format, this open forum will focus on how stakeholders need to work together to support the adoption of standards and create a framework that enables innovation throughout the patient's journey in primary, secondary and social care.
