February and March saw even greater visibility for HSX:
- Demo a Success at HIMSS ’17!
HealthShare Exchange had a significant presence again this year at the world’s largest health information technology conference, HIMSS17 in Orlando, Florida. Response was strong to its innovative demonstration of clinical-data interoperability, involving more than a half-dozen partner organizations. Fictitious patient Felecia’s story depicted a scenario in which a young woman failed to overcome cancer through her care in 2016 — then fast-forwarded to a future in which health information exchange helped her win the battle with a different sequence of events in clinical care in 2020. Learn more, see the pictures and videos, and the scripts used for this pioneering demo.
