As part of a partnership to advance healthcare interoperability, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) and Health Level Seven International (HL7) will work together to promote a standardized approach to interoperable data exchange, the organizations announced.

“CHIME is pleased and eager to collaborate with HL7 to combine our efforts in achieving greater interoperability and health information exchange,” CHIME president and CEO Russell P. Branzell, said in a statement. “This partnership emphasizes our commitment to drive the effective use of data sharing to improve the safety, quality and efficiency of patient care.”

HL7 is the global authority for healthcare information interoperability and standards with affiliates established in more than 30 countries. Its CEO, Charles Jaffe, M.D., Ph.D., said in a statement, “By providing universal common framework for interoperability of healthcare data, HL7 standards make organizations across the healthcare continuum more successful at achieving their business goals. We hope that the collaboration with CHIME will serve as a catalyst to drive interoperability in our industry and improve the state of healthcare delivery across the nation and worldwide.”
