Common Themes at HIMSS18
There were plenty of meaningful trends and hot topics at HIMSS18, but four stood out above the rest.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer concepts of the future—solutions are being developed and deployed now. In this article, Jeff Byers shares his perspective of how HIMSS18 helped separate AI “hype” from reality.
New at HIMSS18
The 20-minute Lightning Sessions at HIMSS18 provided the opportunity to host a variety of hot health topics in a concise, high-level format. Themes throughout the week ranged from cybersecurity and EHR interoperability to patient engagement and the evolution of prescription benefit transparency.
CoverMyMeds’ EHR Platform Product Manager, Nick Anderson, examined the evolution of real-time prescription benefit solutions within a physician’s EHR and reviewed the future of prescription benefit transparency. During his session, Nick emphasized the importance of a solution that is both transparent and accurate in order to become a reliable platform that creates trust among providers and patients alike.
CoverMyMeds at HIMSS18
Aside from our interactive booth at HIMSS18, CoverMyMeds was invited to participate in several speaking engagements throughout the week.
Our VP of Industry Relations, Perry Lewis, participated in a panel discussion about legislative and regulatory solutions that could help curb the tide of opioid misuse. This breakout workshop highlighted what these reforms will mean for the health care industry and how attendees can position themselves as thought-leaders in this defining issue by partnering with Health IT Now.
Later that same day, Ryan Tarzy, VP of Provider Strategy and Business Development was joined by RelayHealth’s Senior Product Manager, Stacy Hopkins (pictured above), to present a lunch and learn about the evolution of prescription benefit transparency.
Throughout the presentation, Ryan and Stacy emphasized the importance of enabling providers to have more informed conversations with patients, and including patients in their care plans, in order to help drive medication adherence.
