Why is interoperability important in healthcare?

Seventy-five percent of healthcare content may be unstructured, and most clinicians believe capturing this content and making it immediately available when needed is critical to ensure the best patient care. Despite this great interest, integrating this content — including medical images, EKGs, clinical consult notes and more — continues to be a challenge.

HIMSS research indicates that 47 percent of health systems consider unstructured content as their most significant obstacle to improving interoperability.

Hyland healthcare’s interoperability solution

Interoperability is a key strength of Hyland’s content services platform. We are committed to Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). Each year we complete rigorous testing of our integration, based on FHIR REST APIs (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources Application Programming Interfaces), DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) and other standards with core clinical systems at the IHE North American and International Connectathons. In addition, we regularly collaborate with Epic, Allscripts and other EMR vendors to ensure efficient integration within core clinical workflow.

Hyland’s content services platform is integrated with more than 500 applications. Our integration of unstructured content within vendor applications, like Infor, Oracle/PeopleSoft, SAP and Workday streamline operations, improve staff productivity and reduce costs.
