Interoperability Testing and Certification
ConCert by HIMSSTM announced that four products have received the ConCert by HIMSS mark after completing a comprehensive pilot program that tests and certifies electronic health record (EHR) and health information exchange (HIE) vendors. These organizations are committed to advancing interoperability and enabling secure and reliable transfer of data within and across organizational and state boundaries. ConCert by HIMSSTM is an interoperability testing and certification program governed by HIMSS and built on the work of the EHR | HIE Interoperability Workgroup and IHE USA. ConCert by HIMSS works with ICSA Labs and Stella Technologies.
The 2016 ConCert by HIMSS Certified Products, honored during the 2016 IHE North American Connectathon Awards at the HIMSS Innovation Center & Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland, Ohio, include:
“These companies have spent the past year completing a rigorous testing program – the first certification program based on interoperability – to ensure their systems can communicate and enable data exchange in a way that ensures the right person has access to the right data at the right time,” said Joyce Sensmeier, RN-BC, MS, CPHIMS, FHIMSS, FAAN, vice president, informatics, HIMSS North America. “With this data, doctors, consumers and patients will have access to critical information that will empower the best point-of-care decisions. We celebrate and congratulate these organizations during IHE North American Connectathon Week 2016.”
