The 2015 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition, a global, cause-based, not-for-profit organization focused on better health through information technology (IT), taking place April 14 at McCormick Place in Chicago, will host the HX360 Innovation Challenge to present their solutions live before a panel of senior health system executives and venture capitalists.
Sixteen companies have been selected as semi-finalists competing to be chosen as one of four finalists during the Innovation Challenge event. Ranging from digital health, healthcare IT and IT-enabled healthcare services, these companies that have demonstrated their ability to improve patient engagement and the patient experience at hospitals and health systems.
The inaugural HX360 event, a new initiative co-developed by HIMSS and AVIA, puts a spotlight on the adoption and implementation of next generation (non-EHR) technologies to improve care delivery, collaborations that optimize the innovation cycle in healthcare technology, and the processes and structures health systems will require to leverage these technologies.
This year’s HX360 exhibit floor will highlight health technologies that aim to improve provider efficiencies and clinical workflow, patient experience, care coordination for disease and patient retention and acquisition. Speakers, interactive exhibits and special events will also address Contemporary Provider Challenges identified by health systems, including leading in a tech-enabled environment, nurturing health-technology entrepreneurship, and creating value in healthcare delivery.
