Abstract

To achieve interoperability among information systems in health care, industry stakeholders must develop and implement technical standards that facilitate seamless exchange of data. This chapter defines and describes the concept of health information messaging standards, or technical standards that provide the structure for moving data around in the health-care ecosystem. The chapter explains the role of standards as well as how standards are developed. The chapter further examines the components necessary to support the implementation and adoption of standards, including the need for integration profiles, implementation guides, and interface engines. Finally, the chapter considers emerging standards as well as initiatives that seek to further support broad adoption of standards in health care.
