2019 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition

As expected, a handful of major themes and top trends are expected to dominate the 2019 HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, FL next week. Not surprisingly, these themes and trends largely mirror many of the items on the 2019 HCEG Top 10 list of challenges, issues, and opportunities identified by HCEG members.
And HCEG members and sponsor partners will be attending, presenting, and exhibiting at this Grand Daddy of Healthcare Technology event. To learn more, read this most recent post "HealthCare Executive Group & Sponsor Partners at the 2019 HIMSS Conference."
