Course Description

As the exchange of health records and other clinical systems used in patient care become increasingly digital, the focus turns to how this health information can be communicated and shared throughout a patient’s health journey. While often a challenge, adopting health data standards in a comprehensive and seamless manner is key to enabling interoperability. In this course, you’ll discover how data and data sharing (interoperability) standards are interconnected to help achieve a cohesive health system across the entire organization and between electronic health record systems.
