What is The Center for Medical Interoperability?
A 501(c)(3) cooperative research and development lab founded by health systems to simplify and advance data sharing among medical technologies and systems. We provide a centralized, vendor-neutral approach to performing technical work that enables person-centered care, testing and certifying devices and systems, and promoting the adoption of scalable solutions
What is your strategic focus?
The Center’s mission is to accelerate the seamless exchange of information to improve health care for all. Our technical portfolio focuses on three main areas:
- Protect against cyber threats through trusted infrastructure and medical services
- Connect everything through industry-specified interfaces for devices and applications
- Enable greater control over the data needed to care for individuals and populations through next generation platform architecture
Who is involved?
Our board of directors represents the diversity of health care and consists of CEOs from some of the largest health systems in the U.S. Our Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) oversees our efforts to reduce technical complexity. Our Clinical Transformation Advisory Committee (CTAC) explores how technology impacts their ability to manage the growing complexities throughout the continuum of care.
How do patients win?
By advancing data sharing among medical technologies and systems, we will enable information to move freely and securely from the point of care, like a hospital bed, doctor’s office or home, to wherever it is needed to best support precision medicine and population health.
