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.
