A unified voice for advancing the practice of nursing informatics.
The Alliance for Nursing Informatics comprises nurse informaticists and nursing informatics groups who collaborate to transform health and healthcare across academia, practice, industry and nursing specialty boundaries—advancing leadership, education, policy, practice and research through a unified voice.
Addressing national efforts to create interoperable EHRs in hospital and ambulatory care settings.
EHR adoption is improving the quality of patient care, as well as the productivity and sustainability of the healthcare system. The HIMSS Electronic Health Record Association, or EHRA, focuses on collaborative efforts to accelerate health information and technology adoption, advance interoperability, and help ensure that the practical application and operation of EHRs is considered in national and local healthcare initiatives.
Advancing the safety and security of devices and systems.
The goal of the Health Technology Alliance is to improve healthcare safety, quality, connectivity and effectiveness through collaboration, shared knowledge and idea exchange. This community embraces health technology professionals who are dedicated to the identification of challenges and solutions common to the use and support of medical and information technologies in all care delivery settings.
Connections That Transform Health
The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ demonstrates a global health ecosystem where standards-based information and technology enable individuals to securely access, trust, contribute to, analyze and engage with their own health data. It underscores how seamless, secure, interoperable health information exchange contributes to the improved health of individuals and populations around the world—resulting in a comprehensive and integrated approach to care, improved patient outcomes and timely reimbursement.
Improving the way healthcare systems share information for optimal patient care.
As healthcare data moves more freely across technology platforms, consumers are gaining easier access to take more control of their health and healthcare. Interoperability is essential to optimal consumer health. With a key focus on the patient, IHE USA drives the adoption of standards-based interoperability to improve the way healthcare systems share information.
Advancing interoperability in healthcare.
HIMSS partners with IHE USA to engage in interoperability initiatives such as IHE USA, Continua, the Interoperability & HIE Community, the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ and public policy efforts to advance a standards-based health ecosystem through new testing services and platforms.
Reforming technology and health informatics education.
Focused on interprofessional education, community growth and global workforce development, the TIGER initiative offers tools and resources for learners to advance their skills and for educators to develop technology and health informatics curricula.
