As we continue to reflect on our HIMSS experience this year, we come back to the thought-provoking discussions we were able to have in our booth. We loved introducing ourselves to so many of you and getting past the initial “What do you do?” questions to dialogues about the topics that you care about at your organization. We appreciated the opportunity to show you our passion for improving healthcare IT.
Here are some of the trends that we noticed in our talks with all of you and at HIMSS:
Analytics, a buzzword in a lot of arenas, is one of the cornerstones of our business. With valid, quality data giving you relevant, timely, and comprehensive information, you can make educated decisions that can spur your strategic thinking and planning capacity. We stand behind the power of analytics to improve healthcare quality and efficiency, and we recognize that there aren’t any one-size-fits-all approaches. We have a broad understanding of the analytics tools available along with a seasoned team of healthcare experts. We loved discussing the opportunities presented by your challenges with you.
Another trending topic this year is data governance. Folks seem to be aware of their data access and consistency challenges and are looking for ways to make improvements. With the many snippets about data governance, it can be hard to get the big picture, so we’ll dispel a few myths:
As patients in healthcare systems ourselves, we’re excited about the prevalence of population health as a hot topic. Improving care across a cohort of patients is one of the best use cases of the analytics solutions we offer, and we’re excited to see quality and efficiency continue to intersect to improve outcomes for even more people.
