Our CTO, Nathan Apter, is quoted in an article about the changing trends of interoperability in the post-actue sector. The author also provided an outline of Medforce's interoperability iniatives. Read excerpts below and read more about interoperability at Medforce by clicking here.
Healthcare interoperability — the ability of different information technology systems and software applications to communicate, exchange data and use the information that has been exchanged — has been a general healthcare practice for many years.
According to Nathan Apter, CTO of Medforce Technologies, interoperability is moving from being a trendy buzz word to being part of the everyday lexicon of HME providers.
“The idea of software integration is not new,” he says. “But things are changing in two big ways: One is that the baseline level of expectation from HME providers about how their data comes into and moves throughout their organization has risen. Providers are better informed, and this pushes software developers to keep up and continue to create tools that are flexible and can adapt to meet evolving needs. The second way is that talks of interoperability have expanded to be about data transfer and secure sharing of information across healthcare sectors and across players. It is no longer just about the sharing of data between two HME software applications — it’s about creating an entire ecosystem of secure data transfer that is streamlined, automated, and improving the productivity of every entity involved. This includes acute to post-acute, provider to payer, payer to provider — everyone.”
The experts interviewed for this article all represent HME software companies that tout interoperability solutions. Here they describe how their software is helping the HME industry reap the benefits of a well-connected healthcare IT infrastructure.
