Shoppers with a mission flock to exhibit floor

ORLANDO – With federal and state health IT initiatives being developed or fine-tuned, and hospitals, IDNs and physician practices either planning or deploying health IT projects in the last year, expect the exhibit floor to be even more crowded than ever. Indeed, our exclusive poll of HIMSS08 pre-registered attendees found that nearly seven in every 10 attendees was going to the show to “research vendors/products for upcoming IT project.”

The 850+ exhibitors – more than 175 will be exhibiting at HIMSS08 for the first time – should expect to see serious shoppers at the 2008 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition.

“We are in the process of researching an EHR for our 26-hospital system that also meets the needs of our tremendously large outpatient community,” Gerald Engel director of health services for the New York State Office of Mental Health.

HIMSS’ electronic medical record category of exhibitors has eight subcategories and more than 100 companies demonstrating their systems and components in this always popular health IT product.

 “We are beginning to plan for a core hospital system replacement and HIMSS is always an invaluable resource to see vendor products,” said Alice Cronin, administrator of information services for Nyack Hospital, a 375-bed community acute-care medical and surgical center located in Rockland County.

 

“There are so many HIMSS New Products from a hardware and software perspective that it’s sometimes overwhelming to do the research necessary and to identify core and secondary components,” she added. “HIMSS presents a unique opportunity to in a sense ‘go window shopping.’”

No where else can an attendee on the lookout for a specific product see most of the companies in that market in one venue. With 220+ companies showcasing HIMSS New Products and services at HIMSS08, expect innovation throughout the exhibit floor.

“Everyone says that HIMSS is the place to learn about cutting-edge technology solution,” said Lynn Sherman, chief financial officer at of New York City-based Charles B. Wang Community Health Center.

“I need to know what’s current and what’s available so that we stay ahead of the curve and make sound business decisions,” said Lynda Anderson, wellness coordinator for Louisville, Ky.-based Kindred Healthcare.

For people like Jaap van der Heijden, senior director of HIT for Philips Research Europe, HIMSS New Products is just one of the reasons he’s at the annual conference: “HIMSS is the place to be to meet colleagues and listen to new developments. Also see new product (features) in practice,” he said.
