Healthcare Interoperability Integration

Healthcare interoperability integration aims to optimize all health outcomes, while also ensuring the use of health data in both timely and secure access to electronic media.

 

What Is Interoperability In Health Care?

The system in which patients and patient welfare are at the center is called the health sector. For the benefit of patients, the sharing of patient information by all health professionals is in the health sector. A new data-driven and value-based business model is emerging in the name of patient well-being. In this context, HL7 recommends healthcare interoperability integration. Healthcare interoperability integration significantly increases healthcare and patient experiences.

 

Why is Interoperability Important In Health Care?

Health data is information that should be kept confidential, but also information that should be easy to access when necessary. In terms of patient privacy and privacy, data confidentiality is perfectly ensured, while access becomes difficult when there is no interoperability. Difficulties in access can create negative situations and financial damage both for the patient and in some cases for public health. As long as there is healthcare interoperability integration, health organizations and health care providers can conduct rapid and informed research, identify deficiencies, and initiate more comprehensive studies to meet the needs needed, both for patients and for society. In this way, better care models can be offered to patients, patient safety can be improved and service experiences can be improved by interoperability in health services.

 

What are HL7 and HIPAA (PII + PHI)?

In healthcare interoperability integration, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, also known as HL7, is a system open source standards framework for system health data. It facilitates the transfer of all health data from the current system to other systems. It is a structure that allows health care data to be organized, interpreted, and applied in different computer systems. It also configures all other data, such as patient appointments, claims information, financial data, and workflow.

HIPAA, on the other hand, is information that identifies individuals and data related to individuals. PII is a source where much information related to patients is recorded, such as an address, phone, etc.

 

What are DICOM Services and IHE Profiles?

Healthcare interoperability integration has four different levels. These levels are categorized as fundamental, structural, semantic, and institutional. Basic level health data is available in a simple and most basic way. All data of patients are entered into the health record manually. At the structural level, all patient data is standardized. In this way, it is made interpretable by many systems and devices. Systems such as HL7 and FHIR allow records to be moved consistently and centrally. Semantic interoperability enables the exchange of data between systems with different data decodes. Special DICOM and non-DICOM formats are used to display data. Images and data can be transferred to other systems, interpreted, and incorporated into the system. At the level of enterprise interoperability, data can be exchanged between organizations in different decks. Decency and governance innovations must be realized between organizations. This ensures approval, security, and integrated workflow seamlessly.
