HIMSS15 will be in Chicago this year for a week of dynamic education, networking and the latest technology solutions. The theme is transforming health – through the power of information – through innovation, engagement, leadership, connectivity and more. Like the past few years interoperability at HIMSS will play a big part in the event.

Over 100 live clinical information systems simulating health will collaboratively demonstrate a wide breadth of care settings, including both acute and ambulatory workflows and the systems that are used therein. Witness firsthand how IHE Profiles, built around standards-based transactions, bring clinical information to the right person at the right time. After the tour, take a seat in the Education Theater to hear inspiring interoperability success presentations. Learn more.

Intelligent Health™ Pavilion (Formerly the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion)
North Building, Hall B, Booth 6656 – Experience the Internet of Things for Health™ at the Intelligent Health Pavilion at HIMSS15. Healthcare is more connected than ever. From the hospital/clinical setting to your home, come take a tour the Intelligent Hospital, the Intelligent Medical Home (i-Home™) and the Technology Demo Zone. These demonstration areas showcase how advanced technologies—such as auto-ID, BLE, NFC, RFID, RTLS, Sensors, Wearables and mobile devices –are seamlessly integrated to support care givers and care takers at each step of their health journey. These Technologies contribute to improved patient outcomes, greater access to care, and a reduction in overall healthcare costs. Produced by:
