DCRI Senior Informaticist Davera Gabriel has been selected by HIMSS for a two year appointment to the Interoperability & Health Information Exchange (I&HIE) Committee.  The purpose of the committee is to promote standards-based interoperability and new information technologies for secure and accessible health information exchange that leads to improving care while lowering costs. The committee supports HIMSS’ activities on both national and global levels.

In her role, Davera hopes to leverage her “boots on the ground standards and data harmonization implementation experience to support HIMSS’ efforts to bridge the data divide between the healthcare and clinical research enterprises it serves, to maximize benefits of interoperable data envisioned for Learning Health Organizations.” See the HIMSS website for additional information.
