CareSpark, a Kingsport, Tenn.-based health information exchange, will demonstrate interoperability with HIE vendor MobileMD Inc. during HIMSS11. The organizations will demonstrate the Direct Project interoperability standards developed under an initiative of the Office of the National Coordinator.

CareSpark’s service area includes a large veteran population. The HIE is looking for ways to electronically exchange data between Veterans Affairs and private sector providers, says Pat Pope, provider coordinator. “Participating in this demonstration is important to CareSpark not only as a proof of concept, but also as a stepping stone to real production deployment.”

The demonstration, in Booth 7343, will cover mammography referrals and the exchange of orders and results. Mountain States Health Alliance expects to be the first CareSpark participant to exchange real patient data with VA’s James H. Quillen Medical Center in Mountain Home, Tenn.
