What is Interoperability and why is it good for your practice?

Interoperability: What is it?

In the healthcare industry, interoperability means that two or more different secure messaging systems can exchange and interpret data from one another. HIMSS states that “for two systems to be interoperable, they must be able to exchange data and subsequently present that data such that it can be understood by a user.” Source: HIMSS, 2018

To date, healthcare practitioners and organisations have been restricted to sending information on one secure messaging network.  This has left gaps in your ability to securely deliver or receive documents and has meant that your reliance on manual methods of handling patient information has persisted.

What interoperability means in this context, is the ability to support a system-to-system exchange across two or more secure messaging networks. By recognising each other’s network we increase the network size and capability.

The medical software industry has been working towards this milestone for a while now and we are happy to be a market leader in interoperable messaging for healthcare.

How can it help your practice?

The biggest advantage of interoperability is that you can now send and receive confidential patient information securely across a larger network of Health Care Providers.

This means less scanning and less faxing; translating to direct savings for your practice as you can work to eliminate manual handling of this information. You will have increased compliance with Privacy Standards and greater accountability of information sent and received securely.

How can I get started?

So, you see the benefits of being interoperable, it is a good time to look at how to increase your daily use of secure messaging in your business.

  1. For existing ReferralNet members using our interactive address book is the easiest way to discover who you can send to in real-time without having to maintain this in your own local address book. The ReferralNet address book displays practitioners who use both ReferralNet and Argus.
  2. Your practice may need to upgrade to the new ReferralNet Agent before you can start exchanging documents with Argus practitioners. Get in touch with our team and schedule a time for us to do an interoperability readiness check.
  3. Identify the source and destination of documents that you are currently scanning, faxing or posting. Then, reach out to us and we can help migrate these to use secure messaging.
  4. Support your clinical staff in the use of secure messaging as a preference for your business.

So if you are already familiar with Cisco routers and TCP/IP, this may be a better solution for you.

Finally, we recommend the Bryant Advantage Ultimate CCNA Study Package.

It is actually suggesting that the applicants preparing for CCNA Routing and Switching 200-125 Cisco Certified Network Associate, use both the preparation approaches. This will help all applicants to earn the assistances of both the approaches.
300-115 dumps
Bryant Advantage. The Bryant Advantage probably has the most comprehensive study package that is well written using lots of analogies so it can be understood easily by new CCNA students as well as seasoned Cisco professionals. It is on par with the Cisco Press as far as price and another nice benefit is he also has a lab workbook too. We also sell the Bryant Advantage CCNA Lab Hardware Topology to compliment his lab workbook so you can follow through all the labs step by step.

A candidate being able to correctly answer all of the questions encompassed in Cisco 200-125 dump is very likely to pass the exam with flying colors, so if I were you, I would jump at the chance to get a high score.
When you purchase a lab kit form us you will get a lab workbook to help guide you through your labs. But the lab workbook does assume that you have some basic knowledge about Cisco routers and switches.
Most CCNA study guides are about 800 pages so there are lots of concepts and nuisances that are covered and we highly recommend you purchase a CCNA study guide to assist you in your self study efforts.
