Abstract
Healthcare Interoperability is essential to the effectiveness of healthcare delivery in the world. Over the years, hospitals have tried to digitize their services to make the delivery better. However, interoperability remains limited especially in African countries. Most hospitals have still not been able to properly make their systems interoperable to enable different departments as well as other health facilities access common health data even with the usage of different information systems. This project seeks to investigate the technologies that can be used to implement healthcare interoperability in Ghanaian hospitals, and to assess the impact that would be created if these systems are being implemented. Out of this research done, restful APIs were being used to allow users to access healthcare data without having real access or total control of the actual database.
