Advancing interoperability in today’s healthcare ecosystem

Apr 10, 2018

At HIMSS18, Imprivata’s Chief Medical Officer, Doctor Sean Kelly, sat down with CommonWell TV to discuss the way in which Imprivata helps healthcare organizations balance efficiency and convenience, and how our partnership with CommonWell Health Alliance is working to improve interoperability in the present healthcare setting.

“Being able to see a patient’s data when coming from a different facility, even if it’s one of our own, can be an issue,” said Dr. Kelly, who is also a practicing ER doctor. “Data is key to making an accurate diagnosis. With CommonWell, that information is a lot easier to access.”

CommonWell is a collection of suppliers, providers, and healthcare-oriented associates that seek to address the long-standing issue of interoperability in the healthcare world. Through membership, partners participate in education and recruitment efforts aimed at increasing different healthcare organizations abilities to share information that is vital to the health of their patients, regardless of where that patient might be.
