HIMSS - News: Achieving Interconnected Healthcare through HITSP Real-Life Scenarios, 26 Jan 2009 [cached]
"Boston Medical Center and its Community Health Center partners use a vendor ambulatory EMR with a vision to achieve interoperability among the EMRs from these partnering sites," said Joel L. Vengco, director, ambulatory practice systems, Boston Medical Center. Vengco explained that the Safety Network has four different types of EMRs with BMC and the 12 community healthcare centers positioning themselves to electronically exchanging health information for patients they share. "HITSP has been the foundation for the interoperability architecture of our health information exchange initiative. Our HIE work will be the cornerstone for at least the next two to three years of our EMR roadmap."
Vengco noted that the multi-vendor EMR environment has created silos, preventing an interoperable state.

Joel Vengco, vice president and CIO, Baystate Health
At HIMSS, Joel Vengco, vice president and CIO for Baystate Health, will lead a discussion focused on "Liberating Data to Improve Engagement and Outcomes," highlighting the approach Baystate is taking to liberate their most valued asset-data (beyond the EMR)-so that it can work to improve health and engage Baystate's patients and community. He will speak to the health system's efforts to crowd source innovation around the possibilities that emerge from liberated data, and how this approach might benefit the ACO, the hospital, IDN and the payer/provider entering into new care and risk models.
