Application programming interfaces will solve the healthcare industry's issues with data interoperability, according to a Chilmark Research report.

The report, titled 2017 Clinician Network Management Market Trends Report, provides an overview of the challenges and potential solutions to data interoperability in the healthcare industry.

While document-based health information exchanges have helped healthcare coordination in the past, these approaches "have reached the limits of their effectiveness," according to the report.

Chilmark Research recommends healthcare organizations establish a centralized space for data. Using APIs, organizations can provide different applications and users with access to this space. This direct access to data will streamline analytics development and integration, according to the report.

"The advent of value-based care is driving the need to assess risk across a population and effectively manage that risk across a distributed clinical care delivery network," according to the report. "This requires far richer, diverse information flows across a greater diversity of market participants."
