Layered Tech recently attended the annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, the premier healthcare IT show of the year, and we wanted to share what we thought was interesting and informative in terms of trends and news related to hosting, cloud computing and compliance. The education sessions covered everything from managing mobile devices to implementing electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchanges (HIEs) and bioinformatics. In addition, the application of technology and provider/vendor collaboration to reduce costs while increasing patient care were key focus areas for the more than 37,000 attendees and 1,100-plus exhibitors.
