Interoperability requires an ecosystem that many other industries have already implemented. Inevitably, healthcare will be soon to follow. Harnessing the increasing amount of data that care providers manage, along with the consolidation of the industry will depend on a collaborative culture that thrives in a multi-vendor environment. We understand that we are only just beginning to overcome the siloed nature of healthcare and establishing new connections among not only departments, but also into other facilities. As consolidation continues its trend, so will the need to access information into multiple systems. Through the process, a new enterprise interoperability system could be implemented to support internal and external systems integration, without the need to replace any existing vendors in place. The interoperability approach empowered the existing EHR with the functionality needed at a fraction of the cost for full replacement of the existing technologies.
