Virtual tour: Go inside the OneCity HQ of this health-tech disruptor
Interoperability: It’s a complicated word, but these new office spaces are not.
Here’s what the cutting edge of health care technology looks like in office form. The Center for Medical Interoperability opened this spring, aiming to disrupt the status quo.
The Nashville-based nonprofit has brought together some of the industry’s biggest power players to improve the way health care technologies work together. Its board is packed with local heavyweights, including HCA Healthcare CEO Milton Johnson and Community Health Systems CEO Wayne Smith.
The concept was developed in 2011. Five years later, with the combined efforts of contractor Thomas Constructors and engineering by Smith Seckman Reid, construction was completed on the 16,000-square-foot headquarters in the OneCity (stylized oneC1TY) development off Charlotte Avenue. A collaboration between Gresham, Smith and Partners, Steric Design and Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock orchestrated the interior aesthetic to align with the main design concept: “follow the flow of data.”
The center’s mission is to “accelerate the seamless exchange of information to improve health care for all.”
Interoperability means developing infrastructure where myriad technology devices and systems in the health care industry can share information seamlessly. It’s an area where health care is behind the rest of the business world.
