Procuring Interoperability Special Publication Webinar


About this Event



The National Academy of Medicine held a webinar on April 16, 2019 to discuss the NAM Special Publication Procuring Interoperability: Achieving High-Quality, Connected, and Person-Centered Care. 

Realizing the promise of digital technology will depend on the ability to share information across time and space from multiple devices, sources, systems, and organizations. The major barrier to progress is not technical; rather, it is in the failure of organizational demand and purchasing requirements. In contrast to many other industries, the purchasers of health care technologies have not marshaled their purchasing power to drive interoperability as a key requirement. Better procurement practices, supported by compatible interoperability platforms and architecture, will allow for better, safer patient care; reduced administrative workload for clinicians; protection from cybersecurity attacks; and significant financial savings across multiple markets.
