HIMSS14 Annual Conference and Exhibition Interoperability Showcase™

February 23 - February 27, 2014 | Orlando, FL

We live in a world where data moves at the speed of light sometimes, and as smart phone users we take advantage of the accessibility of information we want to go about our daily lives. Most of us assume that data flows as freely for our healthcare providers, but for several reasons this often is not the case:

  • Clinical information systems have proprietary interfaces
  • Provider organizations and physician practices have no cooperative business model
  • There is no universal patient identity management system
  • Systems use different standard languages used in health IT so no crosswalk can be easily built

The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ in collaboration with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) is a live demonstration that helps consumers and clinicians understand how using technology the right way can solve these problems. Tours of clinical vignettes walk attendees through Health Journeys which feature multi-faceted medical encounters that use standards-based transactions to get the right information to the right patient at the right time.

The Interoperability Showcase™ is designed much like a hospital ICU unit, where the central hub is a large theater and one can look around to see a glimpse into any of twenty-two clinical rooms. The dynamic Interoperability Showcase™ Theater features welcome sessions and tour kick-offs. A second theater features education sessions that give a deep dive explanation of technology application every 30 minutes for the duration of the three day exhibition. Looking out you see twenty-two clinical vignettes designed to look like a hospital, physician office, or other care setting. Inside these expansive rooms electronic medical equipment, patient care devices, and large monitors showing clinical information systems - all live and running to demonstrate how data flows in the patients’ health journeys.

Attendees witness patient care devices from over 100 large and small technology providers delivering data to a repository which then allows clinicians at the point of care demonstrated in another vignette to view the records. Easy access to complete patient records improves patient safety, clinician workflow, patient outcomes, and clinical decision making.

“Healthcare provider organizations need to invest in understanding the technology behind their clinical information systems,” says Sandy Vance, Senior Director, Interoperability Initiatives at HIMSS, “too often we allow ourselves to be wowed by front end functionality but do not fully consider the impact of the back end technical capabilities or infrastructure. The good news is – the Interoperability Showcase™ can help attendees take a solid look at both.”

This year, the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ drew an international audience of over 8,000 people to the Orlando Convention Center during the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Orlando Florida.
