Policy Briefing: The Future of Interoperability Measurement

August 30, 2022

The ability to properly exchange and use health information is essential to patient care. It drives improved health outcomes at both the personal and population level.

This isn’t news to the healthcare industry. However, currently, there is no nation-wide standard measurement for interoperability. How can healthcare stakeholders measure their programs and continue to produce positive health outcomes if they can’t quantify this work?

In 2020, the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) created a series of initiatives to pursue a collaborative development of measures that will be valuable to developers, their customers and the general healthcare community. The Interoperability Measurement by Health IT Developers Project, funded by ONC and supported by Clinovations Government + Health and HIMSS, seeks to facilitate discussions with health IT developers and gather insight into five concepts of interest:

  • Status of Interoperability Measurement
  • Factors That Support Measurement
  • Measure Development and Structure
  • Customer Implementation and Adoption
  • Opportunities for Measures of value

Clinovations Government + Health's CEO, Anita Samarth provides an overview of the Interoperability Measurement by Health IT Developers Project. She dives into the Project’s recent work, reviews major developments, and explains their next steps.
