HIMSS16One of the biggest–arguably the biggest–conferences in healthcare IT is right around the corner.

It is the one healthIT leaders are most excited about – HIMSS16 in Las Vegas!

50,000 attendees and 1300 companies will all converge on the Sands Expo Center on February 29th. The sheer scale of this event can be intimidating, even for HIMSS conference veterans — let alone for newcomers — but hopefully this write-up will shine a bit of light on some of the activities Citrix has in store this year.

At Citrix, we pride ourselves on delivering solutions that meet our customers’ unique demands in their respective industries. Over the past year, Citrix has doubled its team of healthcare marketing and technology professionals. The team is dedicated to continually-refining how Citrix Solutions for Healthcare best meet the needs of healthcare providers around the world.

HIMSS provides a great opportunity for you to meet new members of the team, as well as for us to interact with customers who have implemented Citrix technologies as part of their corporate strategies. Citrix will host two lunch-and-learn sessions, plus an internet radio program you can tune in to even if you are not at the show. To get more details on the radio program, check out this blog post from Kathy Holoman.

Here are the details about the lunch-and-learn opportunities at HIMSS:

Beyond the Letter of the Law: Healthcare IT Security Strategies

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
1:00PM – 2:00PM (Register for the Lunch and Learn)
Room 201, Sands Expo & Convention Center

Citrix Chief Security Strategist Kurt Roemer leads a panel discussion about balancing the demands of user experience, security and privacy in mobile healthcare environments. U.S. law clearly mandates the safeguards to put in place to protect patient information. Beyond the regulations, healthcare IT leaders must make strategic design choices about the solutions they implement, the workflows supported and the security measures to ensure compliance. While avoiding breaches is a huge concern, security strategy must also enable patient portals and telehealth, as well as streamlined authentication of personnel. Join us in exploring security strategies that go beyond the letter of the law.

Mobile Clinicians and IT: Partnering for Better Patient Value

Thursday, March 3, 2016
11:30PM – 12:30PM (Register for the Lunch and Learn)
Room 201, Sands Expo & Convention Center

Join Christian Boucher, Director Healthcare Solutions and Citrix Evangelist, and a panel of experts to talk about putting mobile computing to work for healthcare workers on the move. Every healthcare organization is looking for better ways of providing secure mobile and remote access to EMRs and other clinical applications, as well as business software. Learn what has worked for others and share your own successes.

On the Show Floor

Come by the main Citrix booth (#3412) for a guided demo and experience how clinicians can provide care wherever and whenever patients need it, resulting in greater efficiency, new levels of flexibility and better patient outcomes. All of this occurs without sacrificing the security of patient health information (PHI).

Here is some of what we will show:

  • Single-tap access to an EMR on a thin client, with seamless roaming to a mobile device
  • An EMR and medical imaging viewer displayed on a tablet, suitable for showing to a patient at the bedside
  • Secure mobile communication, including e-mail, texting, voice dictation, file sharing and online collaboration to improve care coordination and increase patient interaction
  • A sneak peek at how workspace automation technologies can impact the future of healthcare
  • Preview of features coming in future releases

Intimate presentations at the booth will provide healthcare IT leaders and Citrix Healthcare Partners with the opportunity to touch on a variety of Healthcare IT topics that are top-of-mind.

In addition to our main presence at booth #3412, we have Citrix Ready Partner Pavilion at booth #10528. The partners joining us include AnyPresence, eG Innovations, ExtraHop, Healthcast Solutions, Kaminarino, ThinPrint, Tricerat, and UniPrint. Each has a story to tell about how they’re partnering with Citrix  to help healthcare organizations across the globe deliver  better patient outcomes through technology.

While attendees will be able to connect with peers and learn about the latest trends in healthIT, you definitely can’t leave out on of the more fun things about trade shows: PRIZES! Yes, we will be giving away prizes, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise (so you’ll have to visit us to find out!)

Don’t miss this great opportunity to connect in-person with the Citrix Healthcare Team! In the meantime, be sure to follow @CitrixHealth and visit citrix.com/healthcare to get all the latest updates and information about Citrix Solutions for Healthcare.
