- Upcoming Interoperability Showcases
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases held during HIMSS conferences at locations across the globe, are unique events where healthcare stakeholders come together to demonstrate the benefits of using standards-based interoperable health IT solutions for effective and secure health data information exchange. Educational opportunities at the Showcase connect thousands of health IT buyers and end-users to answer the most complex health IT questions.
An Insider’s View of the HIMSS Interoperability Showcases.
HIMSS Interoperability Showcases provide a venue to learn first-hand how healthcare providers can benefit from purchasing new applications, devices and systems built on IHE Technical Frameworks. The Interoperability Showcases also highlight the globally-adopted IHE Technical Frameworks for delivering interoperability across local, regional and national health information networks.
To qualify for participation in Showcases, participants must successfully test at the IHE NA Connectathon: a cross-vendor, live, supervised, structured testing event with over 115 participating vendors and 450+ engineers and IT architects, utilizing 169 test systems to complete over 4,570 successful tests. All these organizations and IT experts converge on-site in Chicago, IL, for one full week of interoperability testing and problem resolution. Participants test their products against multiple vendors using real-world clinical scenarios contained in IHE's Integration Profiles. The IHE NA Connectathon works in partnership with the Interoperability Showcase, but is considered an independent event, which requires a separate registration in addition to Showcase registration.
HIMSS Interoperability Showcase can help leverage the IHE NA Connectathon Experience. Please see dates and locations of upcoming Showcases below.
