5 Tips for Providers to Advance EHR Interoperability
A new report assessing the interoperability capabilities of six major electronic health records vendors finds they are trying to convince the market they have the answers for data interoperability, but in reality, they still have a ways to go.
Researchers of the report from Chilmark Research are high on the emerging Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) initiative to introduce uniformity across vendors, but caution that FHIR wont be ready for wide adoption until 2018 at the earliest. The report also offers a series of recommendations to providers and vendors to aid their interoperability journeys. (Photo: Fotolia)
