The Language of EPRs and Interoperability.

This webinar will examine widely used EPR and interoperability terms (such as “integration”, “interfacing”, “interoperate”, “interoperability standards”, “best of breed”), how they are used and at times inadvertently mis-used leading to misconceptions at central policy and local business case/implementation levels. We will propose definitions which will hopefully help to avoid such confusions. We will also present the latest findings in our research into EPR systems in acute hospitals in England: which hospitals adopt best of breed v integrated v in-house EPRs and how these EPR types are associated with decision-support capabilities, depth of functionality and hospital financial health.
