Date:2/28/2013

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Gary and Mary West Health Institute, an independent, non-profit medical research organization whose mission is lowering the cost of health care delivery, has collaborated on a research demonstration for the HIMSS13 Annual Conference that enables seamless, standards-based communication between medical devices and information systems. It will be featured at the HIMSS13 Interoperability Showcase™ on March 4-6, in New Orleans, LA.

This demonstration of software-based interoperability is part of a collaborative research effort with Wind River, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, and the U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to achieve interoperability starting at the patient's point-of-care medical device's interfaces all the way through to their electronic health record (EHR). The approach is expected to simplify health information technology (HIT) requirements and improve the delivery of care through a patient-centered network of connected and coordinated devices.

"As we've heard from our hospital partners, health care technology needs to seamlessly work together to communicate and exchange data," said Nicholas Valeriani , chief executive officer of the West Health Institute. "We support efforts to advance health care technology with tools that make it easier for manufacturers to implement standards that could improve patient care and reduce the cost of health care."
