Yaron Derman, Simon La, Jingping Ji, Natalia Lizon and Anthony Kung

Abstract

[This article was originally published in Electronic Healthcare , Volume 7, Number 2.]

We present a quantitative model that compares the financial costs and benefits of Ontario investing in standards-based interoperability versus integration that is not standards based.
