Orlando welcomes the 2014 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, February 23-27, 2014, at the Orange County Convention Center. More than 35,000 healthcare industry professionals are expected to attend to discuss health IT issues and view innovative solutions designed to transform healthcare.
The Society for Participatory Medicine is proud to support this annual event that helps health IT professionals find the right solutions for their organizations.
Conference education sessions include pre-conference symposia on clinical and business intelligence, health IT and rural care, HIEs, ICD-10, innovation, interoperability, patient engagement, mobile health, nursing informatics, physicians’ IT and more. More than 300 peer-reviewed sessions, including workshops and roundtables, along with a new participant-driven education track in which attendees decide the content, round out education offerings at HIMSS14.
Hillary Clinton, 67th Secretary of State of the United States, leads a keynote roster that also includes Mark Bertolini, chairman, CEO and president of AETNA, and Erik Weihenmayer, a world-class blind adventurer.
On the exhibit floor, the enhanced HIMSS Interoperability Showcase will feature an interactive environment where health IT solution providers can collaborate to maximize the collective impact of their technologies and connect with decision makers. The showcase has been expanded to include the Meaningful Use Experience. Two Knowledge Centers, with more than 50 peer-reviewed education and vendor solution sessions, will bring attendees a one-stop experience based on the hot topics of clinical and business analytics/intelligence and mobile health.
