Interoperability between medical equipment and HIT has been long, long, long-term goal. Interoperable equipment will undeniably provide safer, higher quality, and more affordable care. Most of us believe this is a technical challenge, but could it actually be a business model problem? Is the opportunity to save more than $30 billion annually in healthcare dollars worth making interoperability a priority? What are the risks and how can HTM professionals help manage an effective and safe implementation of interoperable technology? Todd Cooper, from the Center for Medical Interoperability, takes time with us to discuss this paramount issue.
