The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and SEI Information Technology have created the HIMSS Solutions Toolkit, a resource that provides a one-stop shop of healthcare-related IT knowledge for vendors and purchasers.

"Our members expend considerable resources to research and select IT solutions, and must also take into account the strict safety guidelines and federal regulations," says HIMSS CIO and CFO Marcia Zitowsky. "By centralizing and validating meaningful data, the HIMSS Solutions Toolkit will help our members spend less time trying to locate factual information and more time on strategic initiatives."

The Toolkit provides healthcare-related IT resources such as product catalogs, market research, IT operational data for hospitals, and data feeds from leading data sources. SEI was able to integrate the disparate data sources and implement a mechanism to include differing perspectives on vendor and product knowledge-challenges that had seemed insurmountable in developing such a robust and analytical product.
