During the COVID-19 pandemic, hospices and palliative care providers are depending more on telehealth and remote patient monitoring.  This is placing great importance on interoperability. The question seems to be how the multiple electronics systems can communicate with each other and make it work.

Many hospices are seeking opportunities to allow their systems to interface with those of their referral partners.

“We can use interoperability to get technology systems to speak to one another on behalf of the patient. We’re not just exchanging documents. We’re actually able to exchange discrete data and use the information that has been exchanged,” Nick Knowlton, vice president of business development for Brightree, said in Home Health Care News/Hospice News webinar. “When we think about setting up these telehealth and remote patient monitoring programs in a COVID world, speed really matters. You don’t have to wait to custom design something to take care of your patient population. You need to be able to move forward, and modern scalable architectures play a big role in that.”
