INTEROPen: Terms & Conditions of Membership
INTEROPen is an open collaboration of individuals, industry, standards organisations and health and care providers, who have agreed to work together to accelerate the development and implementation of open standards for interoperability in the UK health and social care ecosystem.

The work and activities of the INTEROPen community focus on:
1. Data exchanges between the different care domain systems e.g. GP, acute, community, mental health, child heath, maternity, social care. These exchanges will favour structured data whenever possible, with development proposals where it is lacking.
2. The establishment and validation, both clinical and technical, of FHIR-based profiles for the exchange of granular transactional data between systems. These standards will operate alongside other standards such as CDA, which is targeted at document exchange. We work in partnership with the Professional Records Standards Body (PRSB) to establish FHIR profiles and CDA standards that are clinically fit for purpose.
3. Defining APIs with associated trigger events to carry the data, particularly real time requests and posts.
4. Informing the requirements for the technical governance rules, security mechanisms, and regional architectures that will be necessary to safely exchange data in an acceptable manner.
