Factors such as regulatory changes, perpetually emerging standards, lack of interoperability and rapid clinical evolution combine to create a very high risk environment for healthcare product/service developers and those responsible for their deployment. In response to this environment, clinical solutions become isolated, administrative inefficiencies increase, innovation is inhibited and quality of care suffers.
This talk will review how capabilities of the Eclipse Open Healthcare Framework (OHF), including component-level extensibility, substitutability, dynamic maintenance and shared infrastructure, can strongly mitigate the risk associated with this uncertain environment. Such reduction of risk can, in turn, dramatically shorten standardization, development and deployment cycles for healthcare products and services.
