HiMSS offers free interoperability environmental scan

The Interoperability Environmental Scan offers a range of details about the method of exchange, the stakeholders and processes involved by a variety of organizations addressing interoperability issues. The scan allows users to select and compare different organizations approach to interoperability for a variety of criteria. For example users can compare the interoperability approaches for, say governance and website for Epic’s Care Everywhere to Community HIE.

The goal is to provide snapshots of the interoperability landscape where nationwide information exchange occurs.

The information gathered from this scan was leveraged in the creation of the HIMSS Interoperability Call to Action, which provides principles to drive interoperability forward.

The Environmental Scan will be updated regularly as new interoperability approaches gain traction or new efforts evolve from these existing entities. If you have suggestions on updates, new organizations, or additional considerations, please email
