The Code4Health website states, “Code4Health provides a home for the increasing number of open source projects providing software suitable for use in health and care”. INTEROPen was set up as a community to help work with all interoperability stakeholders to create national open standards for interoperability. Naturally there is overlap in these areas and benefits of both initiatives. INTEROPen discussed a partnership with Peter Coates, NHS Digital Nominated Director of the Apperta foundation (“a prime supporter of Code4Health”) at the March 2018 INTEROPen board, minutes here, item 12.
We recognise the synergies between the too and have been in discussions about a more closely linked working partnership. Discussions continue.
