The Health Story Project is a volunteer group within HIMSS that works to educate the health IT community on tools and resources to aid in the creation of comprehensive electronic records that tell a patient's complete health story. Today, most electronic patient records and health information exchanges operate on a small percentage of the available information. The Health Story is dedicated to a comprehensive electronic record that can be shared to improve care through collaboration and analysis.
The Health Story Project began in 2006 as an alliance of healthcare vendors, providers and associations that pooled resources in a rapid-development initiative. In a span of three years, the Health Story Project produced eight Health Level Seven (HL7) data standards for the flow of information using common types of healthcare documents. Today, the Health Story is a Task Force managed by HIMSS, and participation is open to all HIMSS members. Visit the below links to learn more.
