Enabling Access to Quality Healthcare

Printer-friendly version

There are a myriad of IT standards in the healthcare industry, but the current IT standards in healthcare are not always working. Today, there are still too many IT systems that are not interoperable which results in significant barriers to the secured Boundaryless Information Flow™ in healthcare. Inside the healthcare ecosystem, information either doesn’t flow well or it only flows at a great cost in terms of custom integration project.

The intent is to make existing and future IT standards in healthcare productive, pervasive, practical, and persistent.

Improving healthcare’s information flow is a key enabler to improving healthcare outcomes and implementing efficiencies within today’s delivery models. The goal is to look into healthcare challenges, desired outcomes, the extended healthcare enterprise, and the healthcare IT enterprise and gather those pain points that are out there…like interoperability.

In order to lead to better solutions that support better patient outcomes, we encourage the participation of global healthcare organizations as well as healthcare industry stakeholders and those in our Healthcare Forum.
