HIMSS Media's information brands Healthcare IT News, Healthcare Finance News, MobiHealthNews and HIMSS TV are diving into one of the most pressing issues facing healthcare today – baby boomers and their swelling demands on our system.
We'll look at the challenges, opportunities, emerging technologies, and other tactics hospitals, health systems and payers are deploying to manage the needs of the aging-population wave.
A new survey reveals that consumers still prefer phone interactions but want more communication, including digital means. And a majority are open to giving their doctors real-time access to health information via connected devices and apps.
Comprehensive tools for aging populations are going to require broadband, IOT, cybersecurity and data aggregation among patients, family members and caregivers, says Jay Patel, clinical transformation officer at Seniorlink.
Those living with diabetes and other chronic health conditions should be acknowledged and respected as the experts in managing their own care, says Renza Scibilia, Manager, Type 1 Diabetes and Consumer Voice, Diabetes Australia.
With an aging population, disconnected health information systems and a rising consumer, Hal Wolf, HIMSS President and CEO, says that breaking down barriers to information exchange will support delivery of better services and technology.
Information and technology comprise the backbone of smart, digital hospitals and systems. CIOs are leading that next-generation of healthcare and, in so doing, spending increasing amounts of time interacting with all top executives to shape the future by more effectively and efficiently harnessing technologies that align with business goals.
During December, we’ll interview thought leaders and experts to determine how data is redesigning the roles CEOs, CFOs, COOs and other execs play and take a business-first perspective on tactics such as cloud computing, telehealth, patient experience and innovation labs.
Innovation is everywhere in healthcare right now. Apps, big data, social, mobile and open APIs foretell disruption that could emerge from inside or outside the traditional health IT space.
In September, we'll talk to the technologists and hospitals leaders about their top priorities, how they foster the development of innovative projects, apps and devices, as well as advice for overcoming the hardest challenges – all while preparing strategies to keep pace in the fast-changing world of health information and technology.
Weaponized malware, hackers holding data hostage, social engineering and spearphishing campaigns — those are just the basic attack types common today. Hospitals also have to safeguard against the next big threat to health data when there’s literally no way to know what it will look like or when it might come.
During October, we talk to infosec executives and experts about the problems and practical steps to securing sensitive data, advice about what to do (and what not to do) during and after a security incident, and a look at emerging trends, such as analytics and evidence-based security that hospitals should know about.
Healthcare IT News and HIMSS TV covered RSA 2019 live! In San Francisco, the conference's overarching themes were emerging cybersecurity technologies (AI and machine learning, anyone?) as well as the human element, including the need for more diverse infosec teams and modernizing the security culture to empower professionals to better respond in times of crisis.
