Join us for our Special HL7® and HIMSS Interoperability & HIE Community Roundtable! We will be discussing Project Gemini, a collaboration between HL7® and IHE.

What is Project Gemini?


Interoperability & HIE


With a growing imperative to better serve their patients, providers are turning to customer relationship management (CRM) technologies to manage the numerous relationships inherent in healthcare and to better communicate with their patients through multiple modalities (e.g., voice, video, text, apps). In this survey analysis, the HIMSS Exploring Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Technology for Healthcare Task Force assesses the current state of use of CRM in healthcare and the attitudes towards CRM technology in healthcare.

What is the state of CRM in Healthcare?


It will not only take a village to participate in standards-based interoperability, it will take a village to educate, convert and do the heavy lifting necessary to connect healthcare in our nation, and one day around the globe.

Sort through the interoperability jigsaw puzzle


HIMSS would like to invite you to participate in a brief survey to help us understand the state of interoperability and connected care across the healthcare ecosystem. Your responses will be treated confidentially and only used in aggregate with those of other survey respondents. In appreciation of your time, you will have the chance to win one of five $100 Amazon Gift Cards.

Thank you for your insights!


Major tech companies, like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, are increasingly partnering with health IT vendors to remove barriers to healthcare IT interoperability. These companies, along with IBM, Oracle, and Salesforce, “jointly committed to removing barriers for the adoption of technologies for healthcare interoperability, particularly those that are enabled through the cloud and AI.”

Technology, Standards & Disruptors


When faced with unveiling the potential of promising innovation, HIMSS convenes industry subject matter experts like the Blockchain in Healthcare Task Force to break through the noise.

What questions should we be asking?


Every new digital health innovation starts with a great pitch, promising to deliver the same things: a future of improved outcomes, increased patient and provider satisfaction, reduced costs – the package deal. Some might ask: if it doesn’t start off sounding too good to be true, is it truly innovative?

Glimpse into HIMSS’s work to break past blockchain as a buzzword.


HIMSS members were asked for their perspectives on artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare – here’s what they had to say!

How would you describe AI?


The malicious use of AI can create significant problems for the healthcare sector and beyond. AI may be developed with a malicious purpose in mind, or AI may be exploited by adversaries with a malicious purpose – in other words, currently available technology may be intentionally misused.

What vulnerabilities does AI face?

The Implementation Guide for Electronic Health Records was created to help a healthcare organization’s information technology department efficiently and effectively operationalize the CDC’s guidelines within the EHR to improve opioid stewardship in clinical practice. EHRA proposes insights and solutions, noting that they should be tailored to each provider organization’s practice, protocols, and state laws.

Health IT developers and implementers at healthcare organizations across the country will soon be required to know how to leverage Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®). Michigan Health Information Network (MiHIN) and IHE USA are hosting a collaborative interoperability testing event based on HL7 FHIR® specifications and the MiHIN FHIR PIT and Ring of FHIR implementation, consisting of tutorial material and face to face testing at the IHE NA Connectathon 2019.

Take advantage of this opportunity.
