HIMSS14 Annual Conference & Exhibition

Last month Ascom attended the Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Orlando, Florida (23-27th of February).

HIMSS is the industry’s largest health IT conference, with its core focus on achieving better efficiencies in health through information technology, understanding that healthcare is about patients and the positive impact information technology has on improving overall patient engagement.

 The programme was packed with interactive workshops, keynote speakers and networking opportunities. There was a variety of speakers including Hilary Clinton, all extremely impactful and understanding the concerns we face in healthcare today.

Our exhibition highlighted purpose built wireless telephones in healthcare and discussed the key attributes that distinguish a purpose-built device from a standard device and other solutions such as nursecall, duress, patient and asset tracking  that can overall improve workflow and productivity in the workplace.

The reaction to our Ascom solutions that were presented were extremely positive with many delegates expressing keen interest. Overall HIMSS14 was a great event and a fantastic chance to engage and talk to customers.
