Tokyo Olympics presents an opportunity to advance interoperability with support from HIMSS and SNOMED International
March 1 2017
The Olympic Healthcare Interoperability Initiative (OHI) is an effort to bring the most advanced health-record sharing standards to the medical services that will be provided at the Tokyo 2020 games.
OHI is a HIMSS-led initiative with SNOMED International serving as a contributing partner via the SNOMED CT clinical terminology product. A number of other international standards organizations are also supporting the project. OHI is currently in talks with the International Olympic Committee to gain approval for the plan.
OHI proposes to work with the Olympics medical services team in delivering a fully interoperable infrastructure that would make it possible for athletes’ records to be accessible on site based on recognized international standards.
