The company successfully completed compliance testing at the 10th Annual IHE North America Connectathon by demonstrating Prism’s integration of its electronic data capture (EDC) platform used in clinical trials with platforms used by healthcare organizations to maintain electronic health records (EHR) for patients.
Administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), HITSP is a cooperative effort with strategic partners such as the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE), Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) and Booz Allen Hamilton.
Nextrials is again demonstrating Prism’s interoperability at the HIMSS 2009 Interoperability Showcase, part of the 2009 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s Conference & Exhibition, being held April 4-8 in Chicago. Conference attendees can find the showcase in Booth 7750 in the North Hall of McCormick Place.
