Brightree is excited to announce that we are again participating in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase

Discover the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase – a premier 30,000-square-foot exhibition that demonstrates the interoperability imperative for connecting health and care. Learn more about innovative solutions as you interact with vendors and kiosks, and exchange ideas and best practices with interoperability experts and other attendees at networking events.

 Witness impactful and live demonstrations of how Interoperability saves lives and improves outcomes. Demonstrations are shared between 6-8 different organizations and show how standards-based interoperability supports collaboration. Last year, we successfully demonstrated Direct Secure Messaging and CommonWell Network Services in home health and home medical equipment provider scenarios. This year, we are excited to demonstrate nationwide coordinated care capabilities with several other vendors. Our demonstration should offer a great glimpse into the power of nationally scalable interoperability and how this can benefit our customers in the health care continuum.

Here are the descriptions of the interoperability stories that Brightree is participating:

Nationwide Coordinated Care Use Case

David, 43, from rural Washington, is diagnosed with high blood pressure. Months later, David suffers a stroke. Once stabilized, his community hospital ED transfers him to a larger medical center where he is admitted, treated and discharged to home care, avoiding readmission. Later that year, David moves to Texas and establishes a new PCP. Regardless of where his care occurs, David and his providers have access to his health records nationwide via CommonWell Health Alliance, resulting in positive health outcomes.

Participating Organizations: Brightree, Cerner, eClinicalWorks, ELLKAY, Greenway Health, MEDITECH, OneRecord, CommonWell Health Alliance

The demonstration will be held on the following dates and times during the Interoperability Showcase, starting at 0:45 past the hour:

  • Tuesday, February 12: 10am-6pm
  • Wednesday, February 13: 9:30am-6pm
  • Thursday, February 14: 9:30am-6pm
