Where the brightest minds in health and IT ADVOCATE

Sofia is a nurse in the ER of a mid-sized hospital, where she treats patients with a variety of ailments every day. Most of her patients are in her care for the first time. Her priority is her patients’ health, education and experience of care, and she knows that it is vital for her patients’ information to be integrated and available at the point of care in order to inform better decisions and improve outcomes.

Sofia advocates for her patients, as well as for interoperable health technologies that will allow her to access her patients’ accurate and up-to-date health information as soon as they enter the ER.

She is concerned with:

  • Having usable, accurate patient data at the point of care
  • Spending more time with patients, and spending less time searching for information
  • Using integrated clinical technology solutions and devices at the bedside
  • Managing clinical workflow issues, including sharing her patients’ health stories, and maintaining privacy and security
  • Coordinating care when her patients transition from hospital to home
  • Using new tools to help nurses, physicians and other clinicians do their jobs more efficiently and safely using IT-enabled workflow

Sofia knows that she must educate herself on the latest health IT trends and advances in order to continue to positively impact her patients’ care and outcomes.

At HIMSS17, Sofia will explore creative solutions to real-world challenges, discover the latest innovations, and connect with and learn from experts and colleagues as she continues to advocate for her patients and the technology she needs to transform health through IT. She will find 300+ education programs, 1,200+ vendors, hundreds of special programs, and limitless networking opportunities – all designed to equip her to navigate the ever-changing, challenging world of health IT.
