UPDATE 03/05/2020: Since the publication of this blog, the HIMSS 2020 conference in Orlando has been canceled. If you’d like to learn more about our solutions, please visit the Dell Technologies Healthcare page. On March 10 -12, 2020, the Dell Technologies Healthcare-Life Sciences team will join 45,000 health IT professionals, clinicians and executives from around the world in Orlando, Florida at the HIMSS20 Annual Conference & Exhibition, one of the largest health IT events in the industry. This year’s conference theme is “Be the change,” and Dell Technologies is helping our customers and partners “be the change” with our solutions that combine a “patient-first” and a “data-first” perspective to accelerate safer and smarter patient care diagnosis and treatment.With our company’s social impact goals to transform the lives of a 1 billion people by 2030 with healthcare being an important area where technology can have an enormous impact, our innovative end-to-end technology solutions, from edge to core to cloud can help deliver enduring results.Our broad portfolio of software, hardware, platforms, solutions, and services aligned with our robust partner ecosystem is helping healthcare organizations around the world execute on their initiatives for Health IT, Precision Medicine, Connected Health, and Application Transformation – all surrounded by security and data protection.As healthcare organizations deploy our IT solutions for electronic medical record (EMR) optimization, advanced medical imaging for radiology, cardiology and digital pathology along with high-performance computing for genomics – they can envision the possibilities to improve patient care outcomes with more effective treatments. Precision medicine is also poised to advance, moving forward treatments for cancer, neurological disorders, and chronic and autoimmune diseases to benefit many patients that may have not had access to treatments in the past.Dell Technologies is also working with healthcare providers to drive their multi-cloud strategies as they match the needs of their specific clinical and business workloads to an integrated cloud infrastructure (compute, storage, networking & security) that can run on-premise and in public and private clouds. Organizations should expect consistent operations with consistent infrastructure across private, public, and the edge – for a true hybrid cloud experience that is seamless to its clinical and business end-users.Healthcare data is continuing to grow exponentially and grew 878 percent in just the last two years, with much more coming from sensors, wearables, and mobile apps for preventative care and chronic disease management. And, you can just imagine the data that is being generated within the acute care setting, where there’s 10-15 connected devices for every U.S. hospital bed.To get to true actionable insights, we are helping healthcare organizations move forward their Health IoT initiatives with our Edge and IoT capabilities leveraging distributed analytics to improve patient safety and monitor recovery, expand chronic disease management, and provide researchers with new opportunities to enhance precision medicine — just to name a few use cases. Emerging technologies such as AI, IoT and 5G operating at the edge will also enable healthcare organizations to innovate with data in real, actionable ways that were never thought possible.During HIMSS20, at our booth #2121, we encourage our healthcare customers and partners to visit us to learn more about our Healthcare strategy and how our technology solutions can, and are, helping healthcare organizations envision smarter digital healthcare. HIMSS20 participants can also hear directly from our customers who will be speaking in our theater about the positive change Health IT can make in the daily lives of patients, care providers and the community – through digital transformation.To round out your HIMSS20 experience, we also suggest that you visit other Dell Technologies businesses: VMware in booth #2021, Virtustream in booth #7845, and Dell Boomi at 8300-25 in the Interoperability Showcase. No matter where you are in your digital transformation strategy, we look forward to discussing how we can help make your organization’s vision for smarter digital healthcare real today.
