Embracing an intelligent future: Let’s unpack MEDITECH’s top 5 themes for ViVE and HIMSS24

December 7, 2023 |  EHR, Industry Leaders, Health IT, Events


Although the year’s end is quickly approaching, those of us working in healthcare are always looking ahead. And with AI and all the new developments that have transpired in recent months, we are seeing the future of healthcare beginning to take shape right now. 

There’s a lot to accomplish in the coming year, and a lot to look forward to as well. I’m excited to meet with other healthcare leaders and innovators at our industry’s big spring conferences, to share what MEDITECH has been working on with our partners and customers. Here are five topics we are featuring at the upcoming ViVE and HIMSS events, that I would love to discuss in more depth with you. 

Navigating our digital world with the help of an intelligent EHR. Healthcare is shifting, and your organization is shifting with it. But your goals are unique, and so is the specific path you take to reach them. Whether your priority is to improve patient satisfaction, reduce burdens on clinicians, or enhance your bottom line — you need a dependable EHR platform that will help guide you through the complexities of meaningful change. Let’s talk about where you want to go, and how you can get there with MEDITECH Expanse.   

Moving toward perfecting care for all patients. Your community is as unique as you are, and challenges with chronic disease, health equity, and social determinants aren’t going away anytime soon. Treating the whole patient may involve a variety of solutions for your organization — from innovative care models and population health, to precision medicine and patient engagement strategies. Let’s talk about what your communities’ needs are, and how best to meet them. 

Optimizing technologies that are rooted in data and thriving in application. During a time when our industry is already becoming more centered around smartphones than around medical buildings, AI tools will likely accelerate this migration to a more digital world. But how do you know which technologies are the most useful for you? Let’s talk more about what innovations could help your organization right now — like MEDITECH’s integration with Google Search and Summarization capabilities, and ambient listening solutions. 

Staying independent, by standing with the right partners. No one person or organization can possibly take on the complexity of today’s healthcare by themselves. But when you can join forces with a variety of innovators like Google Health, Apple, and MEDITECH, you can stand on solid ground — without losing your autonomy to a larger health system. MEDITECH is dedicated to building strong alliances with customers and technology vendors alike, so you never need to worry about solving problems alone — even in the face of budgetary challenges. Let’s talk about how support from dependable tech partners can help you to keep care local, exactly where your patients want it.  

Strengthening the ties across your communities and beyond, with open data exchange. Your ability to share and synthesize meaningful data across all care settings is perhaps the most important factor contributing to overall clinician and patient satisfaction. Interoperable technology ensures that physicians have all the right information readily available, so they can work closely and quickly with patients to make the best possible care decisions. Let’s talk about how Expanse can help you connect with the outside world, your community, and the patient sitting in your office right now. 

With the industry changing so rapidly, this list is just the tip of the iceberg. What are you eager to discuss at ViVE and HIMSS? Think about it and plan to come see me as well as my colleagues in our ViVE booth #1524, and our HIMSS booth #2580. Until then, happy holidays to all who celebrate! And best wishes as we enter another action-packed new year together.
