Today, we finish our preview of the Care Connectivity Consortium. These final two videos provide the perspectives of a nurse and of a patient on interoperability. If you are attending HIMSS 2012, we encourage you to visit the Interoperability Showcase for a walk through demonstration: Booth #11,000 in Hall G, Feb. 21-23.

The rest of this week, the Center for Total Health blog will be covering HIMSS activities live and on site from the Kaiser Permanente booth — #8507 in the Venetian Ballroom / Exhibit Hall. Stop by, say hello, and see what’s new with mobile health and the Every Body Walk! campaign. We look forward to meeting you in person.

Destination HIMSS: More on Care Connectivity Consortium

We continue our exploration of the Care Connectivity Consortium — a collaboration of five health organizations who have been trailblazers in the use of electronic health records. Geisinger Health System, Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, Intermountain Healthcare and Group Health Cooperative have come together with a shared objective: Health information exchange that supports high-quality, patient-centered care for everyone in the United States.

Today’s videos touch on technology standards used to exchange health information between participating organizations, the link between interoperability and improved quality of care delivery, and how interoperability gives patients a voice in their own health care.

On Monday, we’ll share perspectives from a nurse and a patient. Remember, if you are in Las Vegas for HIMSS 2012, you can check out the first phase of the CCC’s health information exchange work in person at the Interoperability Showcase, located at booth #11,000 in Hall G, Feb. 21-23.
