When HIMSS attendees think “health information exchange,” they’re usually thinking about provider-to-provider, a complicated enough transaction. But one corner of this year’s Interoperability Showcase, held during the entirety of this year’s conference, will feature exchange with patients, a growing trend as personal health records proliferate and wearable devices and home monitoring equipment contribute new data streams.

Visitors to that corner may encounter Aaron Seib, CEO of the National Association for Trusted Exchange (NATE), which is striving to build a trust framework that will bridge the yawning chasm between personal health records (maintained by the patient), and electronic health records (maintained by the provider, who often has a deep distrust of information maintained by the patient). If the visitors have any involvement in health information exchange, Seib wants to talk to them about his fledgling organization, launched in May 2013 as a result of an ONC-funded pilot among several western states.
