Broad education opportunities await C-Suite members at HIMSS13
February 26, 2013 in Medical Technology
Senior executives from around the industry will have a generous offering of education sessions to choose from at the 2013 HIMSS Annual Conference Exhibition. The sesssions are organized in a track aimed specifically at high-level and forward thinking education.
There are 10 executive-level sessions running throughout the show — two to three each day — focusing on concepts, concerns and collaborations encountered by a business’s executive management team.
JoAnn Klinedinst, vice president, professional development at HIMSS, stresses the important subjects trending at this year’s convention: the use of mobile devices, clinical business intelligence, HIEs, interoperability and meaningful use.
She noted the first of these senior-level discussions, Session 15: “Extracting Value from Healthcare ‘Big Data’ with Predictive Analytics,” among the notable sessions for senior executives to keep on their agenda.
“This one is focusing on, ‘Now I have the data, what am I going to do with it?’” Klinedinst said. The session begins March 4 at 9:45 a.m. and is led by speakers Gregory M. Veltri, FHIMSS, and Mical DeBrow, PhD, RN.
Other noteworthy education sessions on the track include: Session 47: “Implementing Patient Engagement and Care Coordination Technologies for Improved Outcomes” on March 4; Session 105: “Implementing a Complete Perinatal Information System,” on March 5; Session 123: “Is it Time for a Clinical Help Desk?,” on March 6; and Session 163: “Lessons Learned from Expanding the Boundaries of the EMR,” on March 7.
“There are plenty of sessions and opportunities for senior executives to gain the education that they need targeted for their particular level of operation,” said John Daniels, vice president, healthcare organizational services at HIMSS.
