3 Health IT Trends to Watch
Healthcare held its own version of March Madness earlier this month with three major conferences showcasing innovators and innovations attempting to transform the industry. There was the inaugural ViVE event, a joint venture between HLTH and the College of Healthcare Management Executives, which we attended in Miami Beach. A week later, SXSW kicked off its health and medtech track in Austin, while HIMSS opened its weeklong event in Orlando, both of which we monitored from afar.
Although the conferences played to slightly different crowds, some common themes emerged. Gone were presentations about the pain of deploying computerized provider order entry or decision support. Instead, the spotlight was on a broader set of opportunities and challenges: sustaining the growth of virtual care, avoiding fragmentation as more digital startups flood the market, easing clinician burnout, propping up the public health infrastructure, ensuring investors get a return on investment, and more. Below we explore three trends that emerged at ViVE, SXSW, and HIMSS.
