HIMSS Day 3 Recap

Wednesday was the final full day of HIMSS14. The show floor opened at 9:30 AM and, again, excited attendees entered the Orange County Convention Center. The VMware booth had a consistent flow of traffic with a wide range of visitors, from current customers to new connections curious about our healthcare solutions.

Orlando Highlights:

  • 11 customer meetings took place in our reserved meeting spaces
  • AlwaysOn Point of Care™ in-booth demo recording, featuring Rory Clements
  • vCloud Care Systems Analysis in-booth demo recording, featuring Scott Carpenter
  • Hillary Clinton Keynote, proudly sponsored by VMware

Stay tuned for links to the in-booth demo recordings, coming soon!

Hillary Clinton’s Keynote attracted a full crowd of 6,000 people to the Valencia Ballroom in the convention center. She discussed a number of items, from healthcare reform to her experiences as Secretary of State. Clinton identified that there is a need for more transparency within healthcare, and one of our goals as an industry should be to improve coordination and communication across all providers that are responsible for a patient’s health. Additionally, we need to help both practitioners and consumers stay informed about patient care practices.

Hillary explained that the Affordable Care Act has liberated people from staying with a job solely for healthcare purposes; Americans no longer need to rely on corporations to provide their health insurance needs.  Our country is on the right track for further improving our healthcare system, but if things aren’t working we need people of good faith to come together and make evidence-based changes.

Wednesday was also the final day of the live HIMSS Online Event. The portal will be available on-demand until May 24, 2014 – it’s not too late to register! Stop by our virtual booth to see videos from HIMSS in Orlando and learn about VMware’s healthcare solutions.
