The Amplion team enjoyed the chance to exhibit and present in the Innovation Zone at the 2018 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, which wrapped up last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference—with the theme of “Where the World Connects for Health”—attracted 45,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world for five days of education, networking and health IT product demonstrations.
Amplion is hitting the road for two important conferences over the next few weeks: the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Texas Organization of Nurse Executives (TONE) and the HIMSS18 Annual Conference & Exhibition! Read on to learn more about how we’re sharing our patient care solutions with frontline nursing and technology leaders—and ways we’ll be listening to the latest challenges and learning from other healthcare innovators.
Amplion enjoyed participating in Health 2.0 Fall Conference, which wrapped up in Santa Clara, California last week. Along with demonstrating how our Amplion Alert next-generation nurse call technology is helping hospitals make the shift to value-based care, we got to see many of the latest digital health technologies in action, from innovations advancing interoperability and artificial intelligence (AI) to analytics improving population health and the patient experience. It was fascinating to see the breakthroughs on the horizon and the potential these emerging technologies hold for solving some of the biggest challenges for hospitals as well as healthcare overall. We spoke with our President, Frank Grant, about his conference experience and what he learned from the demos and discussions. Here are some of his takeaways.
As one of the nation’s leading cities for healthcare and technology jobs, Nashville is a hotbed for healthcare technology innovation and expertise, but that reputation didn’t evolve overnight. Nashville’s fast-growing healthcare technology scene is the culmination of decades of hard work and focused efforts by tech entrepreneurs like our own CEO David Condra.
With the healthcare industry rapidly shifting from fee-for-service to a pay-for-performance model and consumers becoming more invested in their healthcare choices, creating value has become a top priority for hospital leaders.
As hospitals make the arduous transition to providing value-based care, where reimbursements are directly tied to patient experience and outcomes, C-suite leaders are charged with balancing tighter budgets and stringent regulations with initiatives for improving patient care and satisfaction, streamlining operations and lowering costs.
Nurses who are willing to lead and risk being vulnerable are vital to hospitals striving to meet the challenges of healthcare today. That was the underlying message shared at the 50th annual American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) conference held last week in Baltimore. Amplion was thrilled to to showcase our next-generation nurse call system for 3,400 nurses attending this year’s conference, which celebrated a half-century of providing leadership training and professional development to help nurses excel.
Amplion enjoyed participating in The Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Conference 2017, which wrapped this week in Denver. Along with exhibiting our Amplion Alert next gen nurse call platform and demonstrating its potential for transforming patient care, we attended three days worth of fascinating sessions that explored how nurses, clinical teams, patient advocates, family caregivers and patients themselves are working together to improve the patient experience and make it a bigger part of the conversation in hospitals across the nation and around the globe. In keeping with the theme of this year’s seventh annual conference “The Power of &,” sessions offered perspectives from patients and caregivers on the value they found in developing partnerships and connections, practicing empathy and compassion, and viewing one another as individuals with stories that inspire.
Amplion enjoyed the opportunity to exhibit and and present in the Innovation Zone at the 2017 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, which wrapped up last week in Orlando, Florida. The event drew 42,287 of the “best and brightest minds in health IT.” Our team also attended sessions exploring the importance of interoperability and empathy in healthcare IT.
The 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Florida, is almost upon us, and we are looking forward to this gathering of 45,000 fellow professionals who are passionate about transforming healthcare through disruptive technologies. We are particularly excited that our CEO Tom Stephenson will be giving a frank talk about innovation titled “Smashing the Status Quo in Healthcare” on Monday, Feb. 20, at 1:30 p.m. (EST).
