Rapid on HiMSS 2014

This year’s Healthcare IT mega-convention known as HiMSS is going to be absolutely stunning, based on what we know so far. The biggest news? Hillary Clinton herself will be this year’s keynote speaker!

Taking place in Orlando Florida February 23rd-27th, HiMSS is a convention built around a single idea: information technology can and should revolutionize healthcare. The smartest minds in the industry with the most interesting and creative uses of IT in the healthcare field will be present. Everything from healthcare apps to new medical devices will be on display.

The lineup this year is looking absolutely spectacular. In addition to Clinton, Mark Bertolini, CEO of the health insurance giant AETNA will be giving his keynote speech on Monday. Marilyn Tavenner of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Karen B. DeSalvo, the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology will give their speeches on the 27th. To finish the event, Erik Weihenmayer, the famous blind mountain climber and adventurer, will give his presentation.

It’s shaping up to be an amazing experience with tons of awesome new tech to be seen and great advice to be learned!
