Wednesday, January 16 | 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM ET
Join us for our HIMSS Quarterly Winter Interoperability & HIE Community Roundtable! We will be learning about the efforts of the San Diego CIE and the ongoing work of the HIMSS Exploring Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Technology for Healthcare Task Force.

How can social determinants and CRM technology improve patient connections?


Interoperability & HIE


The HIMSS Exploring CRM Technology for Healthcare Task Force shares the results of their survey to assess the current state of CRM in healthcare and attitudes towards CRM in the industry.

How can we use CRM for healthcare?


Access to the records of patients evacuated from the disaster areas can enable vital triage and save lives. The ability to retrieve these records is also a test of how far the U.S. health care system has come in its digital transformation.

California has done more than any other state to enable health IT in disasters.


Within electronic health records, there is an inherent tension between the need for discrete data and natural language. Clinicians find value in both forms of information. The narrative describes the patient's preferences and care priorities, and provides an expanded picture of the patient's social history.

What if we could have rich narrative and machine process and encode important concepts?


Technology, Standards & Disruptors


What do you think the first use cases or applications are going to be for blockchain?

Learn what the experts think.


Since our earliest days of assessing how blockchain may transform the world of healthcare, our team of authors has repeatedly connected and surveyed the landscape to assess what is real and hypothesize on what may come next.

Unleash the power of blockchain.


Our guest blogger and blockchain in healthcare subject matter expert shares how a world where individuals have ownership of their personal health data is possible with blockchain technology.

Reimagine the future of healthcare IT.


Interoperability will create the intersection for blockchain in healthcare. The HIMSS Blockchain in Healthcare Task Force explains how.

How is blockchain technology dependent on interoperability?
