Improving Interoperability between Healthcare Data Repositories

Author: Jorn Bettin

Several healthcare challenges suggest that increased collaboration would improve outcomes, both for individual patients and for organisational efficiency/effectiveness. Simultaneously, the volume and variety of data relevant to healthcare is increasing, in both mainstream activities and via emerging technologies. Monolithic data repositories seem increasingly impractical, particularly by comparison with a federated approach. However, such federation highlights the need for improved understanding of trust, in terms of both data use/ownership and data quality/validity. This paper proposes a semantic model for relevant trust-based concepts, and introduces the Cell Platform as a reference implementation.
