Healthcare IT Conference HIMSS 12 kicks off in Vegas

Tom Paine

HIMSS 12, the annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, starts in Las Vegas today, and Philadelphia area businesses and organizations are well represented there. In addition to large players Siemens Healthcare (Malvern), SAP AG (Newtown Square), NextGen Healthcare (Horsham), Medecision (Wayne) and Precyse Solutions (Wayne), there are scores of smaller ventures, institutions, providers, payers, industry experts and consultants who have made the arduous trek from Philly to Vegas. (You can get an idea of what other areas companies are at HIMSS by searching for Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware on this page). Although I am not one of them (boycotting Nevada because of its approval of Google's self-driving cars), I will do the best I can to stay on top of major developments remotely.
