The Consortium is taking a multi-pronged approach by convening listening sessions with key stakeholders. These sessions will help clinicians and public health agencies around the world leverage critical existing resources and respond to this global emergency. Sessions are designed to:
The Consortium is curating the following series of three initial COVID-19 listening sessions to help raise awareness, reduce duplicative efforts, focus industry resources, and share actionable insights from key stakeholders involved in the global pandemic response.
Each 90-minute listening session will include representatives from key projects that will provide an overview of their efforts, projected milestones and describe potential opportunities for participation. These listening sessions will be held at different times to accommodate an international audience. Listening sessions will be facilitated by Consortium subject matter experts. A summary brief will be generated after each session, and a final report will be published to the Consortium website globalhealthinterop.org once the first series of listening sessions have concluded.
The Consortium aims to support standards development, adoption, interpretation and acceleration in alignment with key policy principles endorsed by Ministries of Health and government agencies around the globe, with the goal of advancing the deployment of interoperable health solutions that improve patient health outcomes.
HIMSS, HL7 International and IHE International formed the Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability to help the global community deploy key initiatives by aligning technology and policy resources to improve outcomes. Learn more about the Global Consortium for eHealth Interoperability.
