Interoperability in Healthcare Information Systems

Book Description

Although the standards in electronic health records and general healthcare services continue to evolve, many organizations push to connect interoperability with public service and basic citizenship rights. This poses significant technical and organizational challenges that are the focus of many research and standardization efforts. Interoperability in Healthcare Information Systems: Standards, Management and Technology provides a comprehensive collection on the overview of electronic health records and health services interoperability and the different aspects representing its outlook in a framework that is useful for practitioners, researchers, and decision-makers.
