Interoperability

Exchanging information between CHT Core and other systems

Interoperability and Integration are often used interchangeably but mean different things. This article offers a useful delineation between the two.

With interoperability, systems work together, even if they weren’t designed specifically to work together, because standard communication protocol techniques are applied. Two (or more) systems that weren’t designed to be interoperable require integration.

OpenHIE, HL7 FHIR, ICD-10, LOINC, etc… are examples of healthcare related protocols and standards used to achieve interoperability. CHT Core can be configured to support many of these standards and also exchange data with other systems through integrations.
