Interoperability is one of the biggest health IT challenges today. True interoperability is critical to real healthcare transformation. Challenges and considerations include: differences in database structures, technical characteristics, and data formatting are significant challenges to healthcare organizations in maximizing the benefits of big data. Information  is  siloed within systems, departments, or organizations, because of a lack in technology and procedures to integrate data and communicating findings. This results in slow project completion times, impact inability to add new data sources, and can bring the expected benefits.

The cloud has a vital role in optimizing data interoperability in healthcare. Healthcare cloud computing can deliver real-time, secure access to virtually any format using highly elastic compute, bandwidth, and storage capacities. Fortress Networks’ open cloud infrastructure delivers advanced interoperability that reduces the complexity and costs of integrating, normalizing, and storing patient data from multiple sources. This shortens ramp-up times, increases flexibility to add new data sources, and speeds time to market with new big-data projects.

Consider this: a single provider can be “interoperable” within its own enterprise, but not outside its own four walls.

Lose the legacy mindset that isolated data is secure data.

Extensive interoperability  is critical to today’s value-based reimbursement models.

Interoperability is not about success or failure of a single provider. It’s about the success or failure of the entire system. Fortress Networks delivers advanced interoperability so we cut your complexity and costs.

If you worry about integrating, normalizing, and storing patient data, contact Fortress Networks today. We can help.
