Interoperability in healthcare is the ability of devices, software, and information systems to connect within or outside the boundaries of organizations to exchange and access patient data. The different level of operability include foundational, structural, semantic, and organizational.
Interoperability can enhance patient experience, reduce medical error rates, and lower healthcare costs, among other benefits. Despite these benefits, it has been a struggle for healthcare providers to implement these systems into their existing platforms.
