The ITAC Health Interoperability and Standards Committee is pleased to host a complimentary webinar on Thursday, May 4, 2017
The HIMSS Olympic Healthcare Interoperability (OHI) Initiative
presented by: Michael Nusbaum, HIMSS North American Board member and Lead – HIMSS OHI
The Olympic Games bring together large numbers of athletes, support staff, volunteers and spectators from around the world, every two years. One of the responsibilities of every host city is to provide a Medical Services program to ensure the care and safety of all who participate and attend. The International Olympic Committee provides a constantly-enhanced template for Medical Services, which mirrors excellence and innovation stemming from clinical and technical advances in modern healthcare.
The Olympic Healthcare Interoperability (OHI) Initiative is committed to advancing the seamless exchange and use of health information, using established international standards, to support an integrated medical services infrastructure at each Olympic Games site. To do so, the OHI network will connect pre-Games person-specific healthcare information with information generated at Games time by Olympic and Host City service providers. OHI is intended to introduce an Electronic Health Record (EHR) infrastructure to the Games, which brings together healthcare information from national Olympic teams with the healthcare services provided onsite at each of the Games, together with information supporting tertiary healthcare services provided by each Host City. By creating an eHealth ecosystem that aligns information flow with patient flow, through all points of service, benefits including improved clinical quality and reduced costs will accrue.
