In order for us to achieve the most value from big data, we will need to have interoperable health information systems. This will require standardization in our health information systems. The highest level of interoperability is semantic operability. The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) defines semantic operability as technology that
“provides interoperability at the highest level, which is the ability of two or more systems or elements to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. … Semantic interoperability takes advantage of both the structuring of the data exchange and the codification of the data, including vocabulary, so that the receiving information technology systems can interpret the data. This level of interoperability supports the electronic exchange of health-related financial data, patient-created wellness data, and patient summary information among caregivers and other authorized parties. This level of interoperability is possible via potentially disparate electronic health record (EHR) Systems, business-related information systems, medical devices, mobile technologies, and other systems to improve wellness, as well as the quality, safety, cost-effectiveness, and access to healthcare delivery” (HIMSS, 2015, para. 2).
Evaluate an application of interoperability in health care. What are the sources of data? How does the application benefit patient care? How does this application contribute to or detract from patient involvement in health care? How does the application benefit population health?
Use at least two peer-reviewed or scholarly sources, in addition to your textbook, to support your assertions.
This paper should be 3-4 pages and follow current APA guidelines.
