The Center for Medical Interoperability has announced its board of directors, which officials say is the next step to jumpstart the creation of a platform to achieve integration of medical technologies in a plug-and-play manner.  

The Center was launched with $10 million in funding from the Gary and Mary West Foundation, in conjunction with personnel and technology from the La Jolla, Calif.-based Gary and Mary West Health Institute. Its board of directors consists of executives of some of the largest health systems in the U.S., including Johns Hopkins University, Cedars-Sinai Health System, Robert Wood Johnson Health System, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, and others.

A key element of the Center’s strategy will be a research and development lab where solutions are collaboratively developed, tested and certified. The Center will aim to work with its members to understand business, clinical and technical requirements, and with the healthcare marketplace in a vendor-neutral manner to develop solutions and share performance results to help drive adoption.

“It is vital that all forms of healthcare technology, including medical devices and electronic health records, be able to seamlessly exchange information so that the quality and safety of care can be improved and costs can be reduced,” Michael M.E. Johns, M.D., the founding chairman of the board of directors, said in a press release statement.
