HIMSS13 is Almost Here – New Orleans, March 03-07

The 2013 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held on March 3-7, 2013, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans (www.himssconference.org). More than 36,000 healthcare industry professionals are expected to attend to discuss health information technology issues and review innovative solutions designed to transform healthcare.

IMIA is pleased to support this annual event, as it has done for many years, and encourages its members and colleagues to participate. Conference education sessions include pre-conference symposia on ICD-10, clinical and business intelligence, health information exchanges, clinical engineering, innovation, meaningful use, nursing informatics, physicians’ IT, and RFID and RTLS in healthcare. More than 300 peer-reviewed sessions, including workshops and roundtables, round out education offerings at HIMSS13.

President Bill Clinton leads a keynote roster that also includes James Carville, political consultant, and Karl Rove, media contributor and former deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to President George W. Bush. The Meaningful Use Experience, new to HIMSS13, is designed to help providers find EHR solutions that are certified for acute or ambulatory facilities. The exhibition also features knowledge sharing that focuses on usability and proven implementations.
