What a HIMSS conference! It was great to see so many clients and to make new connections—and it was an honor to present alongside ZirMed clients and be part of a genuinely engaged audience hearing stories and insights from across healthcare.
That’s one of the most remarkable things about HIMSS each year—that despite the aptly-named #HIMSSanity of the conference, the crush of 40,000+ plus professionals coming together in exhibit halls the size of a small island nations, the long lines for coffee and at-times overwhelming opportunities to learn and expand your network—in the end, it’s the energy and passion of attendees that shines through in the conversations at HIMSS.
Perhaps the heightened nature of the event is what sparks such lively discussions—perhaps the incentive to get a day’s worth of coffee once you get to the front of the line doesn’t hurt either. Whatever the reason, HIMSS15 was a remarkable opportunity to get a fresh read on what’s ahead for healthcare. And the passion of the attendees was a clear signal that the providers and vendors alike are focused on meeting the challenges of the new revenue cycle head on—with innovative technology and approaches, including predictive analytics, machine learning, and cloud-based solutions that elevate the conversation surrounding interoperability by enabling all systems to work together independent of their innate ability (or inability) to share and normalize data.
Highlights for us included Stanford Children’s presentation and interview (Want to learn more? Check out the case study!), as well as an eye-opening look at leveraging data analytics to improve productivity and revenue. Special cheers to everyone who attended our presentations on Charge Integrity, Denials Management, and Patient Access—and we hope the Garrett Popcorn hit the spot!
Thanks to all for a great conference, a great meeting of minds, and a great chance to see so many old friends and familiar faces. On that note: You don’t have to wait until HIMSS16 in Las Vegas to see us again. Check out our coverage and snapshots from the conference—and consider coming to come visit us in Louisville, Santa Monica, or Chicago in 2015!
