Standards in healthcare define the set of requirements (data structure, file format, protocol, procedures, processes, systems, etc) that must be met and agreed upon by all organizations within a determined health ecosystem to deliver quality healthcare service to its people.
Healthcare service delivery is still problematic in Asia.
STANDARDS AND INTEROPERABILITY TO SUPPORT BETTER HEALTH OUTCOMES
STANDARDS are foundational components in building a health ecosystem which allows INTEROPERABLE exchange of health information.
This helps facilitate the continuity of patient-centric care, wherein people receive DATA-DRIVEN and INFORMATION-BASED treatment from their healthcare providers (doctors, nurses, hospitals, etc) at any place and at any time.
At the end of the day, citizens in each country should be given what is due to them: the right to access quality healthcare service wherever they are in the world without burdening them financially.
Co-create your Interop Lab with SIL-Asia!
The creation of an interoperability lab in each country can facilitate health data
and information exchange at the national level to support evidence-based
healthcare service delivery.
