Interoperability and telemedicine

_Stage C, Hall 4.2
Telemedical procedures may help to ensure high quality, affordable treatment. Compatibility between the involved IT-systems is a requirement for a smooth data exchange and optimal workflow. Accepted standards play a key role.
In comparison to other countries the acceptance of standards in Germany is low. From the perspective of telemedicine the development of the telematics infrastructure (TI) also leaves open questions. For example the e-health law with the interoperability list provides a procedure for determining the necessary interoperability specifications for the telematics infrastructure. However in the context of telemedicine applications there is still a lack of consistent standards of interoperability.
Together with experts DGTelemed discusses interoperability in telemedicine and provides i.a. its position paper on the creation of interoperability standards.
This session is organised and held by the German Telemedicine Association.
