Our Mission…

…to enable organizations and communities to harness the benefits of interoperability at scale. This mission is achieved through next generation workforce training, interoperability testbed standardization, and solution development focused on enabling interoperability and standards.


About Us

The Interoperability Institute (IOI) is designed to provide the products, services, leadership, and workforce to bring advanced interoperability solutions to the Health IT market. For stakeholders invested in health and social outcomes, this means less fragmented, more resource efficient ecosystems that seamlessly share electronic information for public benefit. For consumers, this means greater continuity of care across providers, health systems, and geographies among a myriad of other benefits that stretch beyond healthcare.

IOI is excited to have received 501 c3 non-profit status from the IRS. As a new non-profit entity IOI focused on building industry reputation in 2021. This is now being realized via invitations from public sector agencies, legislative interests, private companies, and academic partners to join collaborative efforts to further HIT implementation, standards, and the development of a skilled HIT workforce.
