The past few years has seen a move away from paper based systems in healthcare to an increased investment in health IT systems, digital medical devices and administrative systems. However, effective integration and interoperability of systems is lacking.
The inaugural eHealth Interoperability Conference builds on our well established ehealth conference series and will discuss the benefits of interoperability solutions, methods for increasing interoperability and integrating yet more systems into your hospital or healthcare service, and will feature case studies of successful interoperability projects.
To give you an idea of the calibre of speakers and breadth of topics already featured in this series here are some past papers from the PCEHR conference, National Telehealth Summit, and Electronic Medication Management Conference.
