Key Takeaways From the Himss Tradeshow in Las Vegas

[embed][/embed] Popshap was thrilled to help exhibitors at this year’s HIMSS tradeshow, and we’re pleased so many folks made time to stop by our booth and fill out a contact form. Attendance, in general, was down due to the Delta variant, but there was massive pent-up energy from those who joined to meet with old contacts and make new acquaintances—of course with masks on and hands sanitized. Here are a few things we learned from a memorable conference: The Digital Revolution Has Arrived Digital and virtual healthcare were major buzzwords at past tradeshows, but the pandemic has brought them right back to the forefront—and there’s no turning back now. The virus is also accelerating the shift to virtual care and telehealth, which will necessitate investment in AI competencies that ensure specific patients are matched with the right health services and care surroundings.

Facts Must be Integrated

Fully linking medical and pharmacy information was another common subject in many of the conversations we had at the Himss tradeshow. There was obviously frustrated with outdated data warehouse vendors’ contributions when it comes to integrated, cross-benefit breakdown. Over and over, leaders talked about the need to answer initial questions, like how involvement in one benefit (such as drug obedience) affects other benefits. It was exciting to hear so many front-runners talk about their promise to finding new ways to work with their associates across healthcare to answer these demands so that all patients can have the right of entry to the therapies they need.
