Breaking Barriers to Interoperable Healthcare
Held at HIMSS conferences at locations across the globe, HIMSS Interoperability ShowcasesTM are unique events where healthcare stakeholders come together to demonstrate the benefits of using standards-based interoperable health IT solutions for effective and secure health data information exchange.
Today's healthcare providers have many important and competing needs and goals. Whether the end goal is to be on a path of continuous improvement, to realize improved patient safety and outcomes, or meeting regional government mandates, HIMSS Interoperability Showcases serve the healthcare community by promoting uptake of standards-based solutions that improve the potential for health information exchange between systems, providers, and organizations in order to optimize clinical care.
Use Case-focused Tours
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases allow visitors to see a clinical continuum of care, demonstrated through multiple clinically-accurate use case scenarios simulating healthcare environments such as Ambulatory, Hospital/Provider, Emergency, Chronic Care, Public Health and more. Showcase visitors witness firsthand how standards-based transactions bring clinical information from multiple care settings and systems together. These use cases also demonstrate how clinical work flow can be improved by decreasing duplicative entry of information.
Valuable Partnerships & Collaboration
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases demonstrate the important partnerships and collaborations between many relevant organizations including integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), HL7, IEEE, Continua, government agencies, and other key stakeholders. By engaging these powerful forces, a HIMSS Interoperability Showcase becomes an all-inclusive demonstration of the current state of adoption of standards-based solutions.
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases are hosted around the world, focusing on regional health information exchange issues. Each year, HIMSS partners with Health IT vendors and standards organizations to deliver the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase at the HIMSS Annual Conference in the United States, eHealth Week in Europe, and National Health IT week in DC.
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases are the ideal venue for individuals to become involved in breaking barriers to interoperable healthcare. There are opportunities year round for volunteers to inform solutions, provide expertise, and build relationships that deliver this innovative approach for interoperable solutions to healthcare communities worldwide.
