HIMSS12 Interoperability Showcases™

Feburary 20-24, 2012 | Las Vegas

The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ presented in collaboration with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise was an experience you do not want to miss. With over 100 vendors and 140 systems represented, the HIMSS Interoperiability Showcase™ highlighted health information exchange across multiple communities of care in clinical use case journies. At this live demonstration of clinical information systems, tour guides walked attendees through a patient’s continuum of care to see how standards-based transactions improve the delivery of healthcare.

IHE technical profiles are the foundation of many health information exchanges around the world, and are being incorporated into interoperability initiatives globally in order to bring the right data to the right place at the right time. At the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™, these profiles were seen in action as attendees became the patient in a compelling clinical scenario and walk from system to system - setting to setting – to see how each profile impacts transitions of care.

The Showcase experience connected clinical information system experts from over 100 Health IT vendor organizations to small tour groups of HIMSS attendees so that you can get clear answers to the most complex interoperability questions. Attendees' observed first hand the benefits of standards-based Health IT system solutions such as faster implementations, decreased costs, and improved patient care.
