If you’ve ever been to a HIMSS show, you know it’s one of the most important healthcare organizations ever made. It’s brimming with healthcare information management hot button topics and innovative ideas. It’s working collectively to optimize patient outcomes and care through technology and policy changes that will keep people safe and healthy. It’s comprised of the field’s leading experts and advocates, and is continually making positive change in the healthcare industry.

Which is why we’re so excited to go to the Northern Ohio HIMSS Summer Conference. It will be on June 6th at the new Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland. The theme is, “The Winds of Change: The Impacts of Information Technology on the Economy of Healthcare & Patient Outcomes”. From the Northern Ohio HIMSS site, here’s an idea of what you’ll get if you join us for the show:

“We are in the center of a substantial change in Healthcare, with Information Technology playing a major role. This conference explores how components of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (e.g. eHealth Initiatives, the shift from the Fee-For-Service model, Health Information Exchanges, and the Health Insurance Market Place) impact Operations, Revenue Cycle and Knowledge Management of Healthcare Systems.

Subject areas:

  • Healthcare Reform Impact on Healthcare
  • Accountable Care Organizations (and/or Patient Centered Medical Homes)
  • Information Technology Efficiencies in Healthcare
  • eHealth Initiatives

So join in the conversation, and give your insight on the impact of IT on overall patient health and wellness. Come to the show and share how your company solved an inefficiency or vulnerability within your systems. We hope to see you there!
