Overall, #HIMSS16 was an amazing experience for the Softheon team. As it was our first time attending the conference, we walked away with an overwhelming sense of optimism and enthusiasm for the future of our industry. As an industry leader in health insurance marketplace integration, we were thrilled to connect with so many forward-thinking organizations that were eagerly looking to take advantage of new opportunities while overcoming the challenges that exist within the modern healthcare industry.
The continued evolution of population health is of particular interest to our team at Softheon. New and innovative management techniques and tools are emerging to better balance cost savings with patient wellness. The emergence of modern value-based care models such as ACOs and patient-centered medical homes can be seen as an indication that population health has now been much more clearly defined and implemented in the United States.
Industry disruptors are moving forward with technological solutions such as mobile engagement tools, patient and physician portals and advanced analytics. In this environment, Softheon’s industry-leading exchange platform has been extremely well-received and we are elated with the outpouring of positive feedback from HIMSS attendees.
