HIMSS announces the launch of ConCert by HIMSS™, testing and certification program that assures secure and reliable transfer of data among electronic health records, health information exchanges, and health information services providers within and across organizational and state boundaries.
Building on the work of the EHR/HIE Interoperability Workgroup (IWG) and IHE USA, ConCert by HIMSS offers a unique, independent seal of approvalfor EHR, HIE and HISP systems. ICSA Labs serves as the testing and certification body for this effort.
The new program, unveiled at the HIMSS15 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, addresses a key obstacle in today’s healthcare system: many IT systems cannot connect with each other, creating the need for costly interfaces to be built each time systems are interconnected. This new certification will give providers a seal of approval to ensure they are making smart buying choices.
