Interoperability: Better Care Through Better Information Sharing is organized by Nurse.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held from Dec 15, 2016 - Dec 15, 2019. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.0 Contact Hour.
Interoperability is the ability of different information systems and devices that can exchange data and interpret that shared data. For two systems to be interoperable, they must be able to exchange data and subsequently present that data so it can be understood by a user. This continuing education module provides nurses with an overview of interoperability in the context of health information technology with a focus on how interoperability affects healthcare delivery.
