HIMSS 2018 – What to Look Out For…

As usual, we are pleased to do our annual Advance Report on those Announcements that have caught our attention.

Best among many, are Dave Anderson, and Stephanie Fraser, – who have made respective polite efforts to reach out to us on behalf of their respective clients EHNAC, and  GDPR people Nextgate, and Moran Faibish and her very interesting Healthwatchtech company. But there are dozens of others, and here are just a few:

• Influence Health’s CEO, Rupen Patel and CHRISTUS Health’s VP of marketing, Preston Gee, will also be presenting on 3/7 @ 11:30 am in Palazzo B (ID: 140) – A New Era: The CMO’s Role at the Healthcare Consumerism Table. Both executives are available to address how the consumerization of healthcare is fundamentally changing the way healthcare organizations need to market themselves by creating Amazon-like experiences for patients, or risk losing market share.

• Greenway Health, which recently earned the highest KLAS rating for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management Services, Small Clinics, will be announcing its next phase of Project Polaris, a next-generation practice management and EHR platform that will combine the best attributes from all of the company’s market-driven solutions to help providers effectively leverage a value-based healthcare environment for greater success.

Peter Hesse, 10Pearls’ CSO, will be presenting Magnetic PX: Building Secure, Engaging Experience, and would be happy to chat about the importance of security in providing patient experiences. He can also discuss how healthcare companies will need to adjust to meet HIPPA requirements as they implement emerging technologies such as AI and ML.

Ghazanfar Ghori, 10Pearls’ CTO, will be attending the event and available to discuss the solutions that his team has developed for their healthcare clients, such as HIPAA-compliant telehealth solutions that deliver care to patients in rural areas, online communities that connect caregivers to resources, and voice enabled AI applications capable of detecting dementia.

You can also arrange a meeting with data management provider Commvault’s General Manager of Worldwide Healthcare Business, Ananth Balasubramanian while at the show.

Ananth is available during the conference and can discuss, but not limited to:
·         What HIT executives must know about GDPR ahead of May’s deadline, and how they can become compliant
·         What HIT executives must know about ransomware, and how they can protect their organization and patients from increasingly savvy hackers
·         What HIT executives should know if they are considering migrating data to the cloud, and how to most strategically plan this (multi-cloud vs. public vs. private)
·         How healthcare entities can prepare and future-proof amid looming uncertainty as the administration deliberates how to make changes to healthcare reforms
·         Amazon / JP Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway’s new healthcare behemoth, and what it could potentially mean for the broader industry
·         How Commvault’s customers, such as Prime Healthcare and Montgomery County Memorial Hospital (and their patients) are benefitting from stronger, more secure data protection, recovery, backup and management in the cloud and on-premises.

David Dimond, CTO, and Dan Trott, Healthcare Field Director, Dell EMC Healthcare and Life Sciences, will also be there:

David and Dan will be onsite to discuss:
• Embracing a Digital Future and a supporting study commissioned by Dell EMC with Vanson Bourne Research
• Electronic Medical Record (EMR) adoption
• Changes in the healthcare technology landscape and high-profile mergers
• Leveraging multi-cloud environments

Dell EMC executives will be available to host industry discussions, providing perspective on these themes and how they support digital transformation in an ever-changing healthcare field. Along with these discussions, Dell EMC will host a number of interactive technology experiences, social media activities and customer events.

Courtney Cohen writes to say that; AI and natural language processing is starting to make waves in the healthcare space and Health Fidelity, industry leaders in providing scalable risk adjustment solutions, is bringing the technology to providers to use in a way like never before, such as discovering chronic conditions.

Why not come to meet with the Health Fidelity company, to discuss the advances NLP is making, as well as their recent partnership with Mount Sinai.

And then there are nice and polite invites; Amy Dardinger writes; The past few years, interoperability and AI have been the biggest trending topics at HIMSS. Many organizations are starting to get their systems in order, collecting more data points every day. This makes it even more difficult to synthesize the information to make it accessible and meaningful for healthcare providers.

Would you be interested in speaking with Gary Palgon, VP Healthcare and Life Science Solutions at Liaison Technologies, at HIMSS about the complexities of data integration in healthcare?

We invite any of our Readers to makle direct contact with any of the above vendors.  We are simply passing on what they themselves are saying, without obligation or endorsement – They have taken their trouble to write to us.  But equally there are dozens more. We will be producing our annual Report of HIMSS, towards the end of March 2018, but please contact us if you are looking for any specific health tech, and we will be pleased to point you where possible in the right direction.



eHealth and Digitalisation at Work

The big question at HIMSS Europe in Malta just 8 months ago – was that “eHealth is all very well as a concept  – but how does it work in practice?”  We publish the recent announcement of Hospitals that are at the forefront of this process, for you to see what they are doing – and learn from that?

We will be present and covering HIMSS at Las Vegas in March. If you want a specific report about those Hospitals and Vendors that fit your own needs for 2018 – talk to us soonest – we will be pleased to help!
