Episode #34: New Trends & Events at HIMSS17


When you bring a mass of humanity together, our humanness makes itself apparent.  You hear it in conversations, see it in body language, sense it on the hair on the back of your neck that tingles when you come across something new.  For over 50 years, HIMSS has brought thousands of health and health IT professionals together to focus on transforming health through information technology.  Thousands of people sharing histories along with their handshakes, their glories from victorious implementations, their lessons learned from ill-fated projects.     


Welcome to STEPS to Value, a podcast that explores the intersection of people, processes & technology in healthcare as the industry moves towards a value-focused model. In today’s episode, we will explore new trends and events at the HIMSS Annual Conference ahead with Carla Smith, Executive Vice President of HIMSS North America.
