This Minitrack addresses the limited ability of current health IT applications to exchange information with semantic meaning. Network economics argue that the value of Electronic Health Records (EHR) grows with the number of applications that can share electronic information. Existing and emerging standards such as ICD-9/10, LOINC, SNOMED and HL7v2.x/v3 do not meet traditional definitions of standards that promote interoperability because independent vendors seem unable or unwilling to achieve interoperability.
