Interoperability standards in digital health – A White Paper from the medical technology industry
This white paper presents a medical technology industry perspective on the standards, profiles, and specifications relevant to digital health and provides insight into how they relate to interoperability needs. Lack of interoperability is widely acknowledged to be a critical barrier for the adoption and deployment of digital health technologies and for the digital transformation of healthcare. Addressing and overcoming this barrier requires awareness and cooperation among all stakeholders. This should start with a shared understanding of the relevant interoperability standards in digital health.
The paper has been co-authored by MedTech Europe and COCIR and is intended for companies in the medical technology industry, policymakers at all levels (European and international, national, regional, and municipal), decision-makers in provider organisations, and all other interested stakeholders.
The publication of the white paper is accompanied by a launch webinar taking place on 18 October and featuring speakers from the European Commission, Dutch Ministry of Health, HIMSS and industry. Learn more and register via this link.
