#HIMSS19 Preview – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 4

For the 4th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re doing a preview of the HIMSS 2019 Annual conference taking place next week in Orlando. The world of healthcare and technology never stop changing. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with all the trends and to know which trends have become topics that really matter to healthcare organizations and which topics are still pie-in-the sky ideas that will one day impact healthcare, but aren’t really ready today.

In this episode, we look at what topics will dominate the HIMSS annual conference. For those not familiar with HIMSS, it brings together 45,000+ people from the healthcare IT community at its annual conference each year. With ~1300 vendors involved in the event, there’s always a lot of interesting topics discussed at HIMSS. In this episode, we look at what topics we’ll be hearing about at the conference. We also dive into the topics of AI and population health. Plus, we provide some practical advice for attendees and exhibitors who are trying to navigate the massive conference that is HIMSS including some tips you can even use as part of your last minute preparations.

Here’s a quick rundown of the health IT topics we discuss in this episode:

  • What Will Dominate HIMSS19 Exhibit Hall?
  • AI + Population Health
  • Survival Tips for HIMSS Attendees
  • Success Tips for HIMSS Exhibitors

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you episode 4 of the Healthcare IT Today podcast.
