I’ve been going to the HIMSS annual conference and exhibition practically since I was a child … And I’m especially excited about this year because there are so many solutions out there now for health organizations that can help them tackle their toughest challenges.

What are you mulling over when you drive home at night? Maybe you’re looking to reduce readmission rates or claims fraud, proactively improve population health, or empower clinicians with better decision support at the point of care.

At HIMSS17 you’ll get to see how solutions from our diverse range of partners can help you get the actionable insight you need to optimize your clinical and operational effectiveness.

Innovative health leaders like you are using these solutions to put systems in place that help them amalgamate data from multiple sources, pick out trends and patterns, and use that information to:

  • Predict what might happen to an individual patient with certain warning signs.
  • Recommend treatment options based on successful outcomes for similar patients.
  • Determine operational best practices by comparing data from multiple facilities.
  • Identify potential claims fraud or other abuses.

For example, Fullerton Health, a leading provider of corporate healthcare solutions across Asia Pacific, teamed up with our partner KenSci—who will be in our booth at HIMSS17—to improve both financial and clinical effectiveness.

As I wrote in a previous blog, using advanced analytics and machine learning, Fullerton Health immediately identified over a million dollars in fraudulent and questionable claims. It also helped an employer reduce the costs of managing the health of an employee population with chronic conditions by 60 percent. Next up, Fullerton Health plans to apply machine learning to improve its evidence-based medicine initiative and help clinicians predict the next best step for a patient.

Watch this three-minute video to learn more about how Fullerton Health is saving money and improving people’s health across five countries with the help of advanced analytics.

At HIMSS17, you can also check out ProperPay from our partner CGI, which provides predictive analytics, workflow management, rules management, and global best practices. With ProperPay, health organizations can use advanced analytics and algorithms to identify potential fraud, including up-coding, so they can conduct audits to prevent or recover improper payments. To learn more about how CGI is helping health organizations combat increasing fraud in healthcare, watch this three-and-a-half minute video.

Yet another exciting partner that will be in our booth at HIMSS17 is Proskriptive. A 2016 Microsoft Health Innovation Award winner, it’s a data science technology company that connects healthcare organizations with a market of rich analytic content so health professionals can get easy access to patient insights that guide targeted interventions and help them improve care outcomes.

In addition to coming by our booth at HIMSS to check out all the great solutions from our partners and hear customer success stories, I hope you’ll attend my “lunch and learn” session on Feb. 22 at 11:15 a.m. I’ll be discussing why Artificial Intelligence is healthcare’s next big thing and how you can incorporate it into your strategic IT plans to best support the needs of those you serve.
