INTEROPen is a collaborative forum of individuals, industry, standards organisations and health and care providers, who have agreed to work together to accelerate the development of open standards for interoperability in the health and social care sector. Together, members of the group work on the design and application of technical interoperability standards based on HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR). Focus areas include data exchange, data validation, defining APIs and governance.
As a founding member of INTEROPen, IMS MAXIMS helped create the group in 2016 and has a significant role in its work programme and on-going success in advancing the interoperability agenda in the UK. INTEROPen is currently developing a set of FHIR resource profiles that will be adopted and used for GP Connect, an initiative to support better clinical care by opening up information held within GP Practice systems for use across the wider health and social care setting. The Group’s roadmap – which IMS MAXIMS contributes to – includes further Care Connect profiles that will in turn support all care providers. IMS MAXIMS product development incorporates the outputs of INTEROPen to enable seamless integration with these profiles.
