Grapevine World unites companies that have the common aim of standardizing data transfer. So, together Grapevine World technology suppliers, Grapevine World providers and Grapevine World integrators (system integrators) make global data transfer possible – based on IHE standards.
Grapevine World is an international holding company with the two business segments MARKETPLACE and BACKBONE. Grapevine World coordinates trans-regional activities.
Grapevine creates the prerequisites (Grapevine marketplace, Grapevine backbone) to facilitate global, effective, inexpensive, quick and, above all, standardized data exchange.
Standardized data exchange is not only THE future key issue in the healthcare industry. ALL economic sectors benefit from interoperable solutions as part of the digital transformation.
This allows the participating companies to also access other regions / markets without further necessary development measures (interface programming).
The Grapevine World Initiative is paving the way on a global basis to be able to exchange data in a standardized format. This applies to the following industries (among others):
HOW ARE WE SET UP?
Grapevine World is an international holding company with the two business segments Marketplace and Backbone. Grapevine World coordinates transregional activities such as marketing.
The national companies (Grapevine World Nationals) are responsible for implementing and managing standardized digitalization projects in the specific countries.
WHO ARE THE STAKEHOLDERS?
// Grapevine World unites companies and citizens who have the objective of standardizing the exchange of data.
// Grapevine World technology manufacturers, Grapevine World providers, Grapevine World system integrators, special purpose companies and investors mutually enable global data exchange based on IHE standards.
WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES?
The objective of the Grapevine World Initiative is to enable the increasingly important topic of interoperability in all industries by standardized data exchange, which relies on the IHE methodology, thus replacing expensive and inefficient proprietary systems.
// OPENING UP NEW MARKETS
In addition, the Grapevine World marketplace offers companies of every size of enterprise the possibility to enter new markets.
// STRENGTHENING THE IHE COMMUNITY
In addition, the IHE community is being strengthened on a global scale in order to continue to drive forward the leading ongoing global standardization of IT.
HOW DO CITIZENS BENEFIT FROM THE INITIATIVE?
Citizens benefit from the simplification of processes and procedures and consequently receive universal access to their own personal data with complete control and autonomy (example from healthcare: digital patient files, overview and sharing of information at any time by smartphone). Interoperable solutions continue to strongly contribute to cost reductions. Thus, prices fall for end customers as well.
THE ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE
Efficient and sustainable use of public and private funds through standardized data exchange (e.g. cost-saving on administration)
Immediate usage of an existing global infrastructure
No media gaps through the use of a standardized healthcare system (no USB drive, no CD)
Exchange of patient data between private (e.g. Austrian Health) and public (e.g. ELGA) healthcare files
Exchange and bundling of various different kinds of data (activity data, vital data, clinical data, care manager data)
Ultimate security through decentralized storage of data
