HIMSS12 Update: Focus on Mobile Health and Virtual HIMSS12
Mobile health (mhealth) will feature strongly at the HIMSS12 Annual Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Las Vegas on 20-24 February, 2012 (see http://www.himssconference.org/ for full information). In addition, for those unable to attend HIMSS12 in person, but still wanting to interact with the event, HIMSS will be launching Virtual HIMSS12.
Many believe that mobile health (mhealth) is changing healthcare, and holds new promise to improve outcomes and access, through the convergence of applications, devices and networks. They see mhealth as allowing all sides of the healthcare equation — clinicians, patients and others — to think about health in new ways. They also see it as empowering patients, citizens and carers to manage their health and be more engaged in anytime-anyplace wellness information and activities. A series of education sessions will address specific issues around mhealth.
Virtual HIMSS12 will feature a series of simulcast keynote addresses, other live simulcast sessions, and on-demand education sessions, as well as a “networking lounge” to discuss hot topic issues and interaction with presenters through a variety of social media technologies. Full information about Virtual HIMSS12, including registration and pricing, is available at http://www.himssconference.org/virtual/default.aspx
