Our Connected demonstrations are the backbone of the Interoperability Showcase. Our connected demonstrations are collaborative projects between 6-8 organizations using interoperability standards to exchange information and improve the quality and value of the care provided. Together they develop a storyline that contextualizes the value of their demonstration and tells the story of a patient, caregiver, or provider. HIMSS provides a technical project manager to help support the organizations, facilitate communication, and meet deadlines.

By participating in the Interoperability Showcase you are not only demonstrating your thought leadership but the work you do in the market today to facilitate cooperation, interoperability, and improved health outcomes.
