Smile Digital Health commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate US healthcare providers’ progress in improving interoperability. Forrester conducted an online survey with 145 senior-level interoperability leaders at US healthcare provider organizations to explore this topic. They found that while disjointed data and systems remain an issue for providers today, many have already realized short-term benefits (e.g., improved efficiencies) and expect to realize transformational benefits (e.g., increased innovation and competitive advantage) via their interoperability improvement efforts. Key to realizing the full value of interoperability is filling existing gaps with the right external partners to formalize strategies and roadmaps, and platforms to accelerate adoption of open interoperability standards like Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR).
