Interoperability & Standards Toolkit

HIMSS gives you the tools your organization needs to understand and apply interoperability and the standards driving efforts to improved information exchange.

In the toolkit you will also find policy, practices and principles to help build interoperable systems, information on how to implement and adopt health information standards, and opportunities either to test standard profiles and certify your solutions as interoperable, or to find which products/devices have demonstrated the capabilities of successfully exchanging health information.

This Toolkit will help you better navigate through the various standards, implementation specifications and standards development organizations (SDOs) and guide you to the tools and resources needed to deploy interoperable healthcare information technology (HIT) systems. It is also intended to highlight the thought leadership of volunteers working together to analyze the foundations of HIT interoperability. Check out some of our interoperability resources:
