Health data interoperability

3M solutions for today’s data interoperability needs

3M has technology that enables your solutions to capture and integrate patient and clinical data so that it is available when and where it is needed to optimize value and usability for your clients.

The service-oriented architecture (SOA) and industry-standard components provide an easily integrated link to both new and existing legacy systems, so clinical data is available to professionals throughout the healthcare continuum.

3M healthcare professionals provide over 20 years of medical informatics experience in integrating patient and clinical data across disparate systems, including large IDNs, HIEs, and federal enterprises, while also pioneering and supporting the establishment of healthcare industry standards.

Solutions for health data Interoperability

Interpret and translate disparate clinical data

3M™ Healthcare Data Dictionary (HDD) integrates, interprets and translates clinical data from different sources so it can be used in patient portals, decision support, and data warehouse analytics. The 3M HDD also links to the 3M™ ICD-10 Code Translation Tool to support the transition to ICD-10.

Sustainable data interoperability

3M™ Terminology Consulting Services provides a sustainable solution to map and maintain terminology standards. Provided by a team of industry-recognized informaticists, these services can help an organization achieve data interoperability and also provide comprehensive terminology analysis, implementation, and data cross-referencing (“mapping”) services.


What does 3M HDD have to do with data interoperability?

The 3M HDD is a controlled medical vocabulary server. It helps to translate and integrate healthcare data from independent, disparate systems, resulting in a road map to the content and structure of patient data. This allows coded, computable data to be access—and understood—by applications and users in real-time.
