This is the fourth year in row that I have participated in the largest annual gathering of parties in interest to the health informatics ecosystem. From payor to provider to regulator to vendor to the patient and/or consumer of healthcare services, there is always much flare to consider, discard or assimilate.
This year’s gathering is expected to attract somewhere between 30 to 35 thousand attendees. Second only to CES the HiMSS sea of humanity is a distinct strain of conversation to experience.
From one of the tracks that directly appeals to readers of this blog is the track devoted to accountable care and/or ACOs in particular. More later with an individual dive into the more interesting presentations, but the entire decks can be accessed via: Transitioning to Fee-for-Value through ACOs, Care Coordination and Clinical Integration.
