Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald announced earlier on February 19, 2013 that the Healthcare Information & Management Systems Society will be leasing on the fourth level 12,500 square feet for its Innovation Center, a unique and dynamic testing, demonstration, exhibition, and educational facility, with another 12,500 square feet of exhibition space, of the newly-named Global Center for Health Innovation (formerly the Cleveland Medical Mart). HIMSS also plans to double the size of the exhibition space by 2016. The HIMSS Innovation Center will provide ongoing services for health delivery organizations and health IT companies, along with exhibitions, educational programming, and consumer-oriented applications. In addition, the year-round interoperability showcase and exhibition space will further validate functionality for new and developing products using standards and customized testing in both a physical and virtual demonstration environment. With its scenario-based setting, the HIMSS Health IT Ecosystem will provide a fully operational, multi-facility environment populated with simulated patient demographic, clinical and financial data. The health and healthcare communities will be able to plug into this environment and both test and demonstrate a specific product's interoperability capabilities.
