Microsoft and Stakeholders Look at eHealth, Standards and Interoperability

MicrosoftInteroperability and eHealth might at first glance appear as very different concepts - but the actual relationship between the two is extremely important. Microsoft recently hosted a session on interoperability and standards in eHealth as part of its overall interoperability series.

A video featuring some of the experts who attended the event was put together here to explain the core issues in layman's terms, and the relationship between eHealth and interoperability. The video highlights that with more and better interoperability applied to eHealth, we can improve the exchange of patient and other vital data; leading to new services, greater efficiency and ultimately better patient care. Many of the experts are also eager to highlight the need for optimal co-operation between private and public stakeholders for eHealth to advance.

While interop and standardization may at times seem complex and theoretical, the video attempts to show that they can help in the fundamental transition and innovation of healthcare as a service available to many at lower costs, with greater quality, across borders and with greater efficiencies... these look like great reasons to learn more and make the extra step to understand the world of interop.
