HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition, the world’s largest healthcare information technology event, takes place in Orlando February 11-15, 2019. I’ll be there—along with 40,000 IT professionals, clinicians and hospital executives—and I’m looking forward to meeting with Voalte customers, reconnecting with people I haven’t seen in some time, and getting a look at the exciting trends emerging in our industry. If you’re going to Orlando, here’s what you can expect to see.
