From February 11-15, more than 45,000 healthcare information and technology professionals from over 90 countries will gather at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, for the 2019 HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition (HIMSS19). This industry-leading conference brings together the top clinicians, executives, and market suppliers from across the globe to learn, ideate, and collaborate about the technology that's transforming healthcare worldwide.
See the Technology Shaping Healthcare's Future
Many of Intel's technology partners will be leading the charge at HIMSS19, showcasing a wide range of products and solutions they're developing to transform the wider world of healthcare. Following is a condensed list of Intel partners, the products they'll be demonstrating, and where HIMSS19 attendees can find them.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (Booth #3321)
Hewlett Packard Enterprise's vision is to enable high-quality care, lower costs, and promote healthy populations of engaged citizens with technology and health information that's accessible when and where it matters most to improve health and community well-being. The company positively affects business economic models by generating revenue stream improvements, increasing healthcare margins, and streamlining successful launches of new products and services. Stop by their booth to ask them how.
On Wednesday, February 13th, at noon, HPE will host a session at their booth called "Emerging Technologies for Healthcare Transformation." Intel is at the heart of the technology delivering the future of healthcare.

Panelists will share key findings and strategic best practices about elevating the patient experience, advancing care collaboration and care models for improved outcomes, and ramping up for the future of care with IT innovation. In addition, an abbreviated Think Tank will dive into strategies for Healthcare Cost Transparency, Healthcare Quality Transparency, and Innovation & Industry Disruptors.
GE Healthcare is developing AI solutions across multiple radiology modalities to detect and help prioritize critical cases. Using Intel AI technologies, GE Healthcare has optimized algorithms for Critical Care Suite+ available on OPTIMA XR240amx systems to scan X-ray images and detect pneumothorax within seconds—at the point of care. To learn more about this and other AI-powered innovation with GE Healthcare, join Intel's Prashant Shah in a GE Healthcare panel titled "AI for Acute Care" on Wednesday, February 13th, at 2:00 p.m. in the HIMSS Intelligent Health Pavilion. (Note: Critical Care Suite is 510(k) pending at FDA. Not available for sale in the United States.)
On Wednesday, February 13th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m., join a small, select group of other leaders in health IT to discuss the dynamics of the industry, technology strategies, architecture challenges, and emerging business priorities at Intel's Enterprise Leaders Roundtable. We'll start the session with a very short overview of the enterprise trends we're seeing—from multi-cloud deployment to the application of analytics and artificial intelligence in healthcare—so we can better understand how that matches up with your views on these important topics. Refreshments and an afternoon snack will be served. If you'd like to participate and help shape the discussion, please contact Wendy Bohner at email@example.com.
