A key element of C4MI’s strategy is a technical lab where plug-and-play solutions are collaboratively developed, tested and certified. The vendor- and member-neutral centralized lab is the cornerstone of our efforts. We work with our members to understand clinical, business and technical requirements, and with the healthcare marketplace in a vendor-neutral manner to develop solutions and share performance results to help drive adoption.
Our lab is located in Nashville, Tennessee – one of the country’s centers for cutting-edge healthcare developments and home to several, large and innovative providers. The lab will emulate the healthcare environment in terms of physical space, equipment and information systems. This cutting-edge facility is where engineers and other technical experts will solve the shared technical challenges health systems face in getting medical devices, electronic health records and other IT systems to work in a fully interoperable manner.
This lab will serve as an R&D arm for health systems, guiding innovation and providing a vendor-neutral focal point to work with solutions providers.
