4 Reasons Healthcare Executives Should Attend HIMSS ’16

February 9, 2016

You may think of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems (HIMSS) conference as a technology-only event, but we encourage any strategic-minded healthcare leader to consider making the 2016 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, February 29-March 4 in Las Vegas, a priority. With the theme “Transforming Health Through IT,” HIMSS16 will give executives across the spectrum of healthcare valuable insights, knowledge and best practices for leveraging technology to meet today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

Four reasons for healthcare leaders to attend:

     1. The Salesforce Health Cloud Experience

We have been anticipating the launch of Health Cloud since it debuted at Dreamforce ‘15 last fall. As a Silver Salesforce Consulting Partner, Virsys12 specializes in using the Salesforce platform to help healthcare providers, ACOs and payers address complex data and systems challenges (we’ve even built an app for that). We always say that Salesforce isn’t just for sales, and with the launch of Health Cloud, Salesforce is firmly establishing itself as an innovator in the healthcare space. Join us to hear more at Salesforce Chief Medical Officer Joshua Newman’s session on Wednesday, March 2 from 4:00-5:00.

     2. Network and Learn About Critical Health IT Issues

We look forward to hearing from an impressive slate of speakers addressing some of healthcare’s most pressing challenges, including cybersecurity, interoperability, quality measurements, reimbursement models and other critical issues. But there’s more. With 40,000+ attendees, HIMSS16 is shaping up to be the largest HIMSS conference yet, giving you the opportunity to network and share with peers from across the healthcare landscape.

     3. Find Technology Solutions to Your Challenges

The opportunity to evaluate the latest in technology solutions for healthcare is a main draw of the HIMSS conference. This year’s massive two-story expo, showcasing 1,300+ vendors with essential technology tools and services, addressing everything from mobile health to population health management to coordinated care and the connected consumer, will provide the information, tools, demos and ideas you need to transform health through IT.

     4. Build the Knowledge to Combat Complexity

We believe that the best way to effectively manage through the complexity and volatility of today’s healthcare environment is to continually learn and grow. With more than 300 educational sessions to choose from, this conference is a great place to build knowledge. Technology will play a significant role in how we overcome the challenges ahead, and we believe HIMSS16 will provide every healthcare leader with the valuable insights needed to navigate our future.
