Right after the HIMSS Global Conference, the Showcase team puts out a survey for new ideas for the following HIMSS Global Conference. This survey can be completed by anyone, including attendees and potential participants.
The results of the survey are reviewed by our team and we select them based on a number of criteria including:
We selected 15-20 topics, which are then elaborated on in our draft topic list. We provide inspiration for potential participation, who then sign up and mold the stories to meet their needs.
You can find more information on how to select a demonstration topic here.
If you would like to join our newsletter to be alerted when our topic survey is posted, please see this page.
July 22- October 14- Demonstration Topics Posted/ Participant demonstration selection.
Demonstration topics are posted on our website. Vendors select from these topics and share what they would like to demonstrate.
Note: Demonstration roles are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you would like to demonstrate a specific role, sign up early to get the spot you want!
October 14- Participant Demonstration Kick off Call
This is the opening webinar for all participants in the Interoperability Showcase. We go over expectations, how to get the most out of your sponsorship, and deadlines. Shortly after this call, we set times for the weekly calls for each demonstration.
October14-March 10- Weekly Demonstration Calls
Each week each demonstration meets on a webinar to discuss their demonstration. On these calls roles, data flow, graphics, and narratives are determined. Participants collaborate together and support each other to tell an impactful story using their interoperability technology.
Mid- December- First print deadline
In mid-December the first HIMSS Conference print materials are due. Any participants who wish to join after this point would begin to lose benefits that are part of their sponsorship package. We hope all participants are registered long before this date, but we understand when situations arise. This deadline is not negotiable, and organizations who sign up after this date will not be included in some print materials.
JANUARY 23-24- Face to Face Meeting- Cleveland, OH
In late January we hold a mandatory face to face meeting with all participants in a connected demonstration. This is to ensure that all of the demonstrations run smoothly and everyone has the chance to troubleshoot and work with our graphic designer.
March 8-9, 2020, Orlando, Fl.
The 2 days prior to the conference all participants arrive at 12 pm on Sunday afternoon and begin to set up and test their demonstrations. We work together to ensure that all demonstrations are working properly and each demonstration is supported by our project team. All testing is completed by 5 pm on Monday.
March 10-12, 2020, Orlando, Fl.
Congratulations! The Interoperability Showcase demonstrates each use case once an hour during all exhibit hours. We do not close at any time and visitors are able to tour demonstrations, learn more in our education theater, and get a deep dive on products in our marketplace.
