Article Highlights:

  • InterOp.Community – a new venture of the Interoperability Institute, Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise USA, Interopion and Red Hat – will offer a developer sandbox to spur use of open platforms for health data exchange. They'll provide standards-driven interfaces for electronic health records, hospitals, health information exchanges, labs and insurers – acting as an incubator for interoperability innovation. The sandbox is expected to be launched during the second quarter of 2021. Once it's complete, the plan is to use it in a series of "interopathons" for application development and testing, the groups said.
  • The goal is for the cloud-based InterOp.Community to serve as a next-generation proving ground – offering open source developers tools to help build, launch and test health apps. It will also offer synthetic data to enable modeling of real-world healthcare scenarios.
  • IOI already runs Interoperability Land – an AWS Marketplace-hosted collaborative environment for healthcare developers. But with InterOp.Community, it hopes to further advance an open source complement to that environment, officials said. Through this new virtual environment it aims to offer a space to design, test and prototype new interoperability software, providing an enterprise environment with none of the overhead.
