Welcome to the NIC & HIMSS Group!

The HIMSS Group grew out of an agreement between HIMSS and NIC “to further both their missions by promoting interoperability best practices that deliver the highest-quality of person-centered care.” In this group, you can learn about HIMSS activities, contribute your comments and resources, and engage with colleagues who share your interests. We also invite you to brainstorm ways that NIC and HIMSS can collaborate to advance their convergent missions.

NIC has already partnered with HIMSS in various ways, including publication of “In the NIC of Time: Six Domains of Primary Focus for the National Interoperability Collaborative.” And we are currently working with HIMSS to explore ways to incorporate the Social Determinants of Health and Well-Being into health and human services ecosystem.

NIC’s Principal Investigator, Daniel Stein (also President of the Stewards of Change Institute) led a session with Carol Robinson, CEO of the CedarBridge Group, at the 2019 HIMSS conference. Their highly interactive presentation was titled “State Policy Learning Lab – Bridging the Gap: Health IT Policy Strategies to Connect the Spectrum of Care During Emergencies.” It centered on our Six Domains paper and “The NIC Opioid Use Prevention Playbook.”

Please take a look at these two publications and start a conversation – about these publications or another topic you feel is important to your work, to your field and to the millions of people HIMSS and NIC were created to serve.
