HIMSS19 for Payers: Data Must Move Well and Land Effectively, So Cooperate!

This IDC Market Note summarizes the key payer themes and announcements made at the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference held February 11–15 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida. The HIMSS19 Global Conference and Exhibition brought together 45,000+ professionals representing 90+ countries, 1,300+ vendors, 300+ educational sessions across 22 tracks, hundreds of special programs, and numerous networking events."Payers and providers are becoming undifferentiated, but each has evolving technologies that show where they are and where they want to go, which can be very different," says Jeff Rivkin, research director for Payer IT Strategies at IDC Health Insights. "This conference, mostly for providers, still must be paid attention to by payers as here is where payers can see their optimal infrastructure and their collaborative future.""The event provided insights into the evolving structures and cooperation between payers and providers. It highlighted comprehensive platforms to respond to value-based care, consumer engagement, and creative melding of multiple best-of-breed technologies. HIMSS19 offered exciting examples of how digital technologies are transforming payers and healthcare overall."
