April 16, 2015 — The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) announced that six new collaborators have come on board with the HIMSS Innovation Center, while also detailing enhanced offerings at the facility.

The 30,000-square-foot HIMSS Innovation Center, located in Cleveland, houses the 12,000-square-foot HIMSS Health Journey interactive technology showcase. HIMSS Health Journeys represent stories that show how a clinical continuum of care is improved through the better use of technology. Visitors can tour the center to learn about hot topics in health IT through demonstrations, trivia games and a historical timeline that dates back to the 1800s. The HIMSS mobile app acts as an interactive tour guide for the HIMSS Innovation Center and features learning modules that can be accessed virtually. 

HIMSS is also now offering a comprehensive interoperability testing and certification program — ConCert by HIMSS — which enables electronic health record (EHR) and health information exchange (HIE) vendors to achieve a seal of approval. This effort builds on the work of the EHR|HIE Interoperability Workgroup and Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) USA. The HIMSS Innovation Center provides a road map to both vendors and providers seeking interoperability and facilitates access to testing tools, resources and subject matter experts.

Selecting certified systems will reduce the need for costly interfaces and the ConCert by HIMSS program is backed by highly trusted industry organizations. The certification program allows the market to capitalize on efficiencies gained from combining IHE profiles into constrained specifications that enable a system’s ability to effectively exchange health data. ICSA Labs, an Office of the National Coordinator (ONC)-Authorized Certification Body, has been selected as the certification entity for this effort.
