Live at HIMSS14: People Power Technology
Late yesterday afternoon in the Innovation Theater, a standing-room only crowd listened intently to a session about the digital future of healthcare and the role that adopting technology will play to transform the industry. Asking the audience to imagine the possibilities that await us, we were shown a world where consumers managed everything from chronic illnesses to injuries with an app on their mobile phones.
It’s why we’re all here this week: To discover new technology that will improve the way we work so that we’re providing better patient care. But, the notion that our future rests exclusively with technology is only partly true.People are a big part of the equation – as those who attended this morning’s session on change management will attest.
People are integral to the changes we’re using technology to help us make. Not only are we learning the new systems and processes that will make new solutions effective, but we’re the ones developing the technology. Innovation is our thing, after all, and new ideas are born from conversation.
This is why we’re hosting our MVP happy hour today. For a few hours this afternoon, healthcare executives will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with our leadership about the challenges facing their organizations, and what they need technology to do to address them. It’s how solutions begin. OnBase Checklists for Process Control, for example, is the result of a conversation Dr. Simeon Schwartz, Chairman and CEO of Westmed Practice Partners had with our CTO, Miguel Zubizaretta.
Our MVP event is by invitation only, but, Happy Hour is back at OnBase booth #2364 between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. today.
Stop in to start your own conversation!
