Did you attend the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this year? HIMSS, an organization that focuses on advancing the use of IT and management systems to improve health care, highlighted a clinical engineering symposium and stated, “The environment of change is upon clinical engineers. Those taking proactive steps to understand the new rules and incentives, and to prepare for their impact, will be best positioned for the future. Clinical engineering and IT must design a seamless service and technology support system.”
What was the Interoperability Showcase like? Did you see any innovative technologies? What helpful ideas did you take away from the clinical engineering symposium or the overall conference? We hope you’ll connect with your colleagues here to share your experiences.
