Traditionally, interoperability is all about technology: how to connect healthcare systems so that data can flow from one system into the other. It’s something that’s usually only approached from an IT angle. But to Forcare, interoperability is so much more. It’s the basis for collaboration between clinical specialists, enabling them to deliver better healthcare.
Understanding your way of working
Forcare understands the challenges you face in today’s complex healthcare environment. We know how healthcare professionals work and interact – not only within their own departments and institutions, but increasingly across those walls as well. Collaboration demands ease, reliability and security of electronic patient data exchange. Being able to instantly share results, images and files in a variety of formats. Getting the right data to the right device at the right moment, so that patients receive better care.
You can rely on our technical expertise
Naturally, you can rely on our technical expertise. Based on IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) global standards, Forcare offers an efficient, future-proof answer to today’s interoperability issues. Open, established standards, such as XDS, XDW, HL7, FHIR and DICOM, mean there is no vendor lock-in, giving you more freedom and choice. Moreover, high-level security protects your sensitive data and provides peace of mind.
True partnership between the clinical and the IT practice
However, interoperability is not only about these technical aspects. It’s about building bridges between systems and people. Forcare is taking interoperability to the next level, aiming to achieve true partnership between the clinical and the IT practice. We combine the clinical and the IT angle, and focus on individual collaboration opportunities.
Putting people at the core of interoperability
This means we are simplifying connection and collaboration configuration, by automating or assisting with those tasks. And we generate insight into the business that proves the business value of interoperability. Forcare really puts people at the core of interoperability. Clinical and IT staff alike. And more importantly, clinical and IT staff together. Supported through technology.
