Connectathons

The initial commitment of INTEROPen is to the design and demonstration (via connectathons) of structured data exchange using profiles based on the emerging FHIR standard, exchange of data being across seven health and social care domains in support of a patient’s care pathway.

The seven domains are:

  • GP
  • Mental Health
  • A&E
  • Community Nursing
  • Specialist Outpatient
  • Social Care
  • The citizen and their family

Connectathons are underpinned by the story of Michael, a person with alcoholism, and diabetes and their contacts with the various services, focusing on the need for real time up-to-date data exchange between systems in each domain.
