Augusto is the first West Michigan-based software company to join InterOp.Community, a new nation-wide alliance offering open source sandboxes to advance healthcare Interoperability.
A sandbox is a virtual environment that accelerates developers’ ability to create and test software applications for the healthcare industry. Augusto’s participation will produce faster-to-market applications that improve the lives of patients and healthcare systems globally.
A significant opportunity for health technology is interoperability, which is the ability of computer software systems to exchange health data. Interoperability and health analytics bring more visibility to public health initiatives, help to reduce national healthcare costs, enable better investments and ultimately lead to better patient outcomes.
“We are thrilled that Augusto has joined the InterOp.Community,” said Mary Kratz, Advisory Board Member of InterOp.Community and Executive Vice President of the Interoperability Institute. “Augusto’s contributions will enable the commitment to advancing healthcare interoperability via the use of open platforms and open-source software.”
InterOp.Community is a not-for-profit health IT community focused on the leveraged use of open-source software to provide industry test beds, sandbox environments, technology incubation, and HIT platforms and resources to promote health, human services, and wellness via interoperability.
“Augusto has partnered with health technology businesses for years, helping them develop real-world systems using Interoperability standards. Developing and testing these applications is complex and time-consuming, so we’re grateful for the open-source platforms of InterOp.Community that will advance interoperable health solutions for our clients,” said Brian Anderson, Augusto founder and CEO.
