The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ at HIMSS17 on the exhibition floor is where to see interoperability in action. In this health interoperability ecosystem, the redesigned Showcase offers education sessions, learner stations to explore the use cases, and take a tour to explore the standards-based interoperability and health information exchange. Education sessions on the exhibition floor include creative solutions vendors have found, a story told through their customers who have benefited from these solutions. And interoperability examples demonstrate new payment models, care coordination and population health.
At HIMSS17, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Venture Investment come together for education, exhibition and networking opportunities.
