About Us

INTEROPen is an OPEN collaboration of individuals, industry, standards organisations and health and care providers, who have agreed to work together to accelerate the development of open standards for interoperability in the health and social care sector.

INTEROPen members have access to a collaboration platform, Ryver, where members share resources, announcements and work together on the design and application of technical interoperability standards.

INTEROPen activities include educational events, co-production of CareConnect FHIR profiles and APIs, data validation, hackathons and well as the governance and adoption of standards into the service.

Commercial interests are put to one side in the group’s activities.

INTEROPen is governed by a Board of Representatives who meet each month to discuss ideas and projects, develop the ambitions of the community and check that progress is in line with INTEROPen’s Vision, Mission and Values. INTEROPen Board members represent interoperability stakeholders from across health and social care.
