‘We should talk’ – Interoperability and the NHS

Martin Whittaker of Touchstone Consultancy has worked on a range of NPfIT projects around data communications standards in the NHS, and sits on the HL7 UK board. Martin talked us through the issues raised in a recent paper which he co-authored for the Healthcare Group of Intellect UK, an IT systems supplier organization. Entitled "We Should Talk - Interoperability and the NHS", the paper gives a critical welcome to a CfH initiative called the Interoperability Toolkit (ITK), but argues for taking it out of the closet and opening it to greater engagement from potential users and suppliers.
