10 top trends to watch at HIMSS16
More than 40,000 professionals are coming to Las Vegas for the 2016 HIMSS annual conference and exhibition this week. They’ll be getting a steady diet of information from hundreds of educational sessions and 1,300-plus vendors on the exhibit floor. From the information we’ve been receiving in advance of the conference, several hot themes are emerging that bear watching.
Interoperability on the hot seat
It’s more than the interoperability showcase, which will feature more than 100 live clinical information systems exchanging health data on the exhibit floor at HIMSS. There’s heightened attention on the need to seamlessly exchange information among providers. It will be one of the key topics of federal officials, who will provide updates on the next steps toward advancing interoperability; other information exchange initiatives are reporting on their progress as well.
