HIMSS Interoperability Champions and Supporters are those organizations who support nationwide, ubiquitous, secure electronic exchange of health information. For many years, HIMSS and our valued collaborators have worked relentlessly to ensure individuals and organizations can routinely use secure, trustworthy, interoperable technologies and work flows to promote wellness and improve the health status of patients and populations. While we’ve made much progress, and entire careers have been spent creating the building blocks, our work is not complete. HIMSS asserts that we must achieve secure, appropriate, and ubiquitous data access and electronic exchange of health information: Now is the time for bold action.
In October 2017, HIMSS published the Interoperability Call to Action, with guiding principles to inform health policy and spur our nation’s health sector to action. HIMSS Interoperability Champions and Supporters share our commitment to achieving better health through the best use of information and technology.
