The pace of change in today’s healthcare ecosystem is constant. Exciting, disruptive innovations abound at every turn, accompanied by the struggle to acquire, implement and optimize them for the greatest value.
There is a health revolution on the horizon – and we all must prepare.
As a global advisor and thought leader, HIMSS has a responsibility to lead this movement to help you create change at your organization.
We’re calling all champions of health – those of us committed to improve health and well-being – to unite at HIMSS19 to reimagine health and meet the revolution head-on.
HIMSS is thrilled to unite and collaborate with champions of health from around the world to transform health. We’re excited about the education, speakers and exhibit floor that the conference is known for, plus powerful connections you need to help you match the pace of change and get ready for the health revolution – all at one time, all at one place.
Together, at HIMSS19, we’ll tackle what’s now, what’s new and what’s next in the world of health and wellness. You’ll find unmatched content and curated education to help you solve your biggest challenges and transform health at your organization.
HIMSS19 will feature 300+ concurrent education sessions and nearly 500 education sessions on the exhibit floor, all carefully and thoroughly vetted by the HIMSS Global Conference Education Committee. With 24 general education topics, plus 25 deep-dive preconference sessions – including symposia, workshops, forums and summits – we’ll address the issues that touch everyone across the healthcare ecosystem.
We’ll examine grand societal challenges – like the opioid crisis and the continuing trend toward wellness – that are shaping the very way we understand health and care delivery … how health consumerization is changing the way patients and clinicians interact … the impact of the silver tsunami on healthy aging … and the complex issues surrounding blockchain, innovation, cybersecurity, population health, AI, interoperability and so much more.
We’ll introduce new ways of learning – through creative education session formats, a study-at-your-pace learning lounge and more. We’ll look at best-in-class successes from top-performing Davies Award winners, and EMRAM and Stage 7 organizations. Our SPARK (Session Providing Actionable and Rapid Knowledge) sessions will offer quick insights in just 20-minute segments. Content streams, based on the Institute of Medicine’s Quadruple Aim, will allow attendees to filter content based on technology, information, organization efficiencies, care, environment and other focus areas.
On the HIMSS19 exhibit floor, you’ll find cutting-edge solutions, products and education to help you solve your biggest challenges. We’re bringing back some of our most popular specialty exhibit areas, including the Cybersecurity Command Center, Innovation Live and the always impressive HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™. Our Market Debuts will introduce the latest products from market suppliers. And our new Personalized Health Experience will help you discover how to integrate health technologies into personal care delivery, wellness and daily living.
There will be ample opportunities to network with your fellow champions of health during formal and informal activities at HIMSS19. Our Opening Reception is a great opportunity to renew old friendships and strike up new ones. The Awards Gala recognizes the achievements of outstanding contributions to health information and technology. There are also special interest group (SIG) meetings, receptions, breakfasts, chapter events, a fun event at SeaWorld on Thursday night, and tons of other networking events.
This year, we’re excited to introduce HIMSS Circles, a curated program designed to make the HIMSS Global Conference more relevant, more significant and easier for you to navigate. Get customized insights and guidance on the most relevant parts of HIMSS19 for you and your peers, along with engagement opportunities before, during and after the conference. Participants can view their customized HIMSS Circles agendas within the HIMSS19 Mobile App.
We invite you to join us and 45,000+ other champions of health as we unite at HIMSS19. Together, we will channel the power of information and technology to meet our biggest challenges head-on and truly transform health.
