Apelon consultants can advocate for you at Health Level 7, IHTSDO, LOINC, ISO, and other Standards Development Organizations to ensure that emerging interoperability standards reflect your needs and concerns.
We can help you make sense of the standards and ensure that your interoperability solution is in line with required and recommended standards.
The push to create true interoperability is on, and that means that not only do you need to send and receive data, you also need to make sense of it. Using the same message and document formats is a start. Aligning your terminology and value sets is another. Integrating outside data sources into your electronic ecosystem is yet another. All the while, you must manage security and privacy concerns and ensure you’re staying in line with the often confusing mandates coming from CMS, ONC, and many others.
Apelon’s interoperability consultants are actively involved in standards development. We participate in Health Level 7 (HL7), SNOMED, LOINC, and related activities, such as the ONC’s Semantic Standards Workgroup that is helping to define the interoperability roadmap for the next decade.
You can leverage our expertise in your own interoperability projects and ensure that you’re making the best possible use of the many information standards you have to choose from.
