HIMSS unveils resource to help hospitals navigate interoperability tools

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society released an educational resource to keep hospital executives up-to-date on national health information exchange developments and interoperability initiatives.

The tool, called the Interoperability Initiatives Environmental Scan, includes information on tools like Carequality, eHealth Exchange, Surescripts and Epic's Care Everywhere, according to a May 17 blog post by members of HIMSS' interoperability and HIE committee. The resource outlines information about each organization's governance structure, cost and approach to information exchange, among other information.

"The scan helps determine which solutions or approaches to interoperability are available, how they work and which ones might be right for your organization," the blog post reads.
