Interoperability in healthcare is the ability of different medical software systems to exchange and use data easily without effort from the end users. Interoperability solutions form the backbone of healthcare software systems at hospitals, enabling different platforms like EHR, laboratory management, patient management, medical billing, and so forth to work seamlessly. This allows all the departments at a hospital to coordinate their efforts with little to no physical paperwork. As a result, there are fewer redundancies, better communication, improved care coordination, and better outcomes for all stakeholders.

Explore Interoperability

The process of health information exchange involves efficient procurement, transmission, reception, and analysis of sensitive patient data. When followed efficiently, this process can boost positive patient outcomes, population health management, and the overall productivity of healthcare providers. Our EMR interoperability solutions are designed to integrate health-related records with other healthcare vendors, organizations, providers, and national level government organizations. Through seamless EMR interoperability solutions, information exchange between databases, providers, physicians, or insurance companies is simplified. Accessing data that is holistically stored in a single location directly saves precious time and allows for faster decision making. Prescriptions can also be sent electronically to a patient’s pharmacy, enhancing patient satisfaction.

One significant concern for healthcare organizations is ensuring that their EHR interoperability solutions maintain patient privacy and confidentiality and conform to changing industry standards, regulations, and legacy systems. OSP’s customized EHR interoperability solutions help organizations manage the compliance lifecycle of rules and mandates in healthcare. These systems help monitor user activity, maintain the integrity of access policies, ongoing service levels, and identify financial variances of ICD, CPCs, and DRGs code changes. This contributes toward risk and cost reduction costs of mandates from HHS, CMS, or state agenciesCompliance sees an instant boost with holistic operations.

The seemingly small errors caused by manual data entry in healthcare systems could make a life-changing difference to an individual’s health and treatment. Reliable healthcare interoperability solutions can help to avoid such risks as it allows managers to establish strict rules for accessibility and monitor staff compliance. Healthcare interoperability solutions at OSP, provide real-time access to comprehensive patient records so that physicians can conduct a detailed study of a patient’s ailments and the effects of specific medicines. The maintenance of holistic and accurate patient records for staff accessibility, physician requirements, and administrative purposes can be efficiently utilized for various medical processes, and population health analytics on a central, secure platform that offers web accessibility.

Using EMR interoperability solutions, healthcare staff can save a lot of time on faxing and transferring data to different departments and organizations. Automated systems streamline administrative processes, reducing the cost of manual paperwork, faxes, tests, and prescription orders. These solutions transfer data electronically that can be easily included in the patient’s history and also mitigate scheduling bottlenecks and promote strategic decision making. Interoperable systems allow healthcare facilities to access patient test results from any location and avoid unnecessary repeat testing. Providers can also access detailed medication and allergy information to develop comprehensive treatment plans that can influence both clinical and financial areas, such as hospital readmission rates.

Healthcare facilities handle thousands of records of sensitive patient health information. Robust and flexible healthcare interoperability software solutions allow providers to catalog and share specific information and analysis with relevant staff to make informed decisions for each patient. OSP EMR interoperability solutions work across EMRs, so the hospital IT department, and third-party solution developers within and across the organization. The seamless integration of these systems across all data sources helps providers save time, resources, and money. This form of patient records management tracks patient records through an automated process that eases staff woes and considerably reduces turnaround time. Through the use of APIs, the current HL7 V2 exchange methods are supplemented into a highly efficient format of interoperability. External sharing can be accomplished by simply sharing API standards.

Lack of communication between healthcare systems makes it difficult for healthcare organizations to share data across care settings and analyze costs, frequency of errors, and other problems. Without this critical information, hospitals struggle to measure outcomes and analyze areas of improvement in care delivery and organizational processes. Interoperability enables point to point transfer that helps to probe issues and make adjustments or even track how those adjustments can improve care quality and measure patient health outcomes. Our interoperability solutions aim to use data building techniques to reduce performance disparities and variations that will considerably enhance patient satisfaction and optimize treatments and resource utilization.


Healthcare interoperability solutions engender effortless communication and data exchange between various departments at a hospital. As a result, all it takes are a few clicks on a screen for physicians to order tests, fetch their results, prescribe treatments, and have it all billed with claims sent to payers. OSP can develop solutions for healthcare interoperability according to the needs of individual hospitals and help them streamline operations with a seamless data exchange.

Patients who visit a hospital need to fill out intake forms, have their insurance verified, get a consultation, undergo tests, and make out-of-pocket payments. On the hospital side, lots of formalities need to be completed when treating patients, especially when it comes to billing and claims. But health interoperability enables smooth data exchange and accelerates workflows without paperwork, making things more convenient. As a result, patients have a better overall experience.

One of the biggest advantages of healthcare data interoperability is the ease of integrating newer technologies into health systems. The best example is telehealth. OSP can design customized interoperability solutions to allow providers to incorporate telehealth into their services. As a result, providers can integrate EHR and billing solutions with telehealth platforms, offer effective care remotely, and still file claims from a single interface. This ability smoothens the incorporation of new technologies for providers.
