Making the Most Out of Your HIMSS19 Experience

January 31, 2019

The annual conference, by the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), is fast approaching with only 2 short weeks left. It’ll be an impressive gathering, where “Champions of Health Unite,”-the theme this year-coming together from different areas of the healthcare spectrum and exploring the possibilities of today’s most innovative technology for the future of the healthcare.

The excitement is definitely growing for HIMSS19, with big buzzwords making noise already, from blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, to patient experience. Thousands of healthcare leaders and influencers are currently hustling and bustling, preparing for a myriad of meetings, demonstrations, educational sessions, keynotes, and networking opportunities at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

There will undoubtedly be a lot going on and deciding on your to-do list can be quite overwhelming. To help make the decision a bit easier in getting the most out of your experience, here’s my guide to what Konica Minolta will be doing.

One-to-one meetings and demonstrations with on-site experts

With changing models of patient care in full swing, alongside increasing patient demands for personalized, seamless healthcare experiences, many organizations are prioritizing them but struggling to adjust. Connect with us and learn more about how you can harness our technologies to improve patient care and experience.

Must-hear educational sessions with our esteemed panel

Advancements in technology exist to make our lives simpler, and the healthcare industry expects the same conveniences while keeping it all secure. Attend our educational sessions that will take you on a deep-dive into how we can do just that for you, making processes and systems more simple, convenient, and secure.

Support for the National Kidney Foundation

As much as we are committed to our customers, we value society at large. At HIMSS19, we are proud to extend our support for the National Kidney Foundation through our booth activities. Play our interactive Kidney Quest game, and we’ll make specific donations on your behalf. Or, if you want to make a personal contribution and sign up for a local Kidney Walk, you can conveniently do that at our dedicated stations within the booth, or use our text-to-donate option.

The Secret Challenge

Up for a challenge, especially when it involves some perks? While you interact with different areas of our booth, enter our giveaway challenge. You can receive exclusive, first-time access to a new white paper and get chances to win some priceless experiences. Why is it called a “Secret” Challenge? Well, we’re not directly telling you what criteria needs to be met for entry. We’ll leave it up to you to figure out, but don’t worry, we’ll provide some hints throughout the booth.

So, now you know what you can expect from Konica Minolta at HIMSS19. We understand you and the complex challenges you face today, but that’s why we’re leading the way in digital healthcare transformation for your better tomorrow. Let us help you take that next step to an improved, personalized delivery of care. And, as a HIMSS conference veteran, I’d like to share a few tips on maximizing your time there: pack your comfortable shoes, mark your favorite sessions and events, connect with key exhibitors beforehand, and, of course, make sure to top off your HIMSS19 experience with Konica Minolta.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
