HIMSS 2017: Digital Transformation for Healthcare

Once again, I had the pleasure of attending the HIMSS conference, this year in Orlando, and was blown away by the plethora of impressive IT advances being made in the healthcare space.

This year in particular, as people look at the changes that have already happened in healthcare and the uncertainty of what’s to come, the conference was more alive than ever. These changes include, but are not limited to: potential changes ahead for the Affordable Care Act, the use of telemedicine/telehealth, robotic process automation/machine learning, and coordinated care for patients were all prominently showcased as the way forward to ensure all patients receive the best possible care.

As consumers face increased choice within the healthcare industry, and thus each organization faces increased competition, Appian showcased several features of our Digital Transformation platform at HIMSS, including:

  • Facility Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Care Coordination
  • Inbound Document Management
  • Payer Network Excellence
  • Clinical Trials Management

We were delighted to speak with many attendees in regards to how these features of Appian can help transform their healthcare space and how Appian can assist with their other specific business needs as well.

If you were at HIMSS but didn’t have the time to see a full demo, or were unable to attend and would like to discuss how Appian can help your company achieve their specific Digital Transformation goals, let’s set up a time to talk about those needs. Or better yet, check out our upcoming annual conference, Appian World in San Francisco, and once you’re registered, we can set up a time to chat there. If I can answer any specific questions you may have in regards to your company’s individual situation, just send me an e-mail at Fritz.Haimberger@appian.com.
