Panel 2: The Role of Standards
Tackling the Barriers to Adoption of Interoperable Connected Healthcare
(more information)

Connected Health is realized by integrating technology to support and provide healthcare remotely, and our Connected Health Environment is rapidly changing and complex. The industry is challenged to become more connected, effective, and accessible, and always to maximize healthcare resources.

The Internet of Things, Healthcare Internet of Things, Internet of Medical Things and the like are expanding rapidly, only to be eclipsed by the volume of information generated, and potential barriers of security, interoperability, and scalability are at the forefront. Regardless of the platform design and technology used, e.g., mobile apps, wireless communication, wearable personal health/medical devices, the cloud, or big data analytics, health enterprises, leaders, and consumers want and expect to implement strategies, products, systems, and tools that support clinical decisions and the healthcare delivery systems. Patients and consumers alike need to be well-informed. They want to be involved and empowered in their own healthcare.

Can we help create an environment in which clinicians, EHR/EMR systems, and devices can seamlessly send and receive accurate, secure information while maintaining privacy? Can health data be shared with minimal extra effort and worry, and will 2016 be a turning point?

The goal of this workshop is to bring together professionals to discuss their perspectives on gaps and barriers to the adoption and diffusion of this rapidly changing Connected Health landscape, and the role of standards for solutions in facilitating health information interoperability and portability.
