Driving interoperability

Sharing data is the foundation of patient-centric interoperability at Cerner

We’re focused on supporting safe, connected and informed patient care. We believe that patient data should flow freely, and securely, between care providers across the health and care ecosystem. Interoperability is, and always has been, at the core of what we do, which is why we have driven the creation and uptake of industry standards.

Setting the standards worldwide

Cerner has been active in promoting interoperability worldwide. In 2013, we co-founded the CommonWell Health Alliance to engage the healthcare industry, and we were a founding organisation of the Argonaut Project, working with HL7 to establish the FHIR® interoperability standards to speed up market adoption. We also helped lead the Direct Project in the US, which creates standards and documentation for exchanging secure messages.
