Interoperability, an essential component to the success of any e-health project
Exchange your health data securely and in accordance with current guidelines.
Interoperability is the ability for information systems to communicate while complying with national and international standards. Thanks to a common technical and semantic language, applications can exchange and share data in complete security.
The French Digital Health Agency (ANS) has produced the Cadre d’Interopérabilité des Systèmes d’Information de Santé or Health Information Systems Interoperability Framework (CI-SIS) that proposes technical and semantic rules for exchanging and sharing of health data.
We have been working on interoperability projects for over 15 years and fully grasp the latest norms and standards in force.
At the regional level
Over the last few years, we have been developing regional treatment coordination software solutions as part of the Territoires de Soins Numériques (TSN) and e-Parcours programmes. The aim is to coordinate patient care between the various health care professionals and organisations in the town and hospital. Technically, this translates into sharing information between these professionals, regardless of which applications are used. In concrete terms, hundreds of hospital reports are sent automatically every day from hospitals to patient coordination files.
At a national level
In the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, we are in the process of setting up a network for the creation of DMPs (DMP V1) from hospital information systems and the medical documents which make them up (DMP V1 and DMP V2).
We link our messaging software with Messageries Sécurisées de Santé (MSS) for use by healthcare professionals.
Interoperability is not just the ability to exchange information. It also means understanding its content at a semantic level, and therefore its meaning, thanks to a common language.
This common language includes the use of reference terminologies (Snomed, ICD-10, CCAM . Mesh, Loinc, …) and their construction, The applications can exchange information in an intelligent and comprehensible way, without human intervention.
