HIMSS17 is over, but the drive toward innovation and digital transformation will continue!  According to Modern Healthcare, 42,287 providers, C-suite executives, IT managers, clinicians, government employees, and vendors from around the world attended the conference, which was held last week in Orlando, Florida.  Cybersecurity, cloud, EHR ease-of-use, patient engagement, and interoperability were the key issues that attendees are interested in solving for their healthcare organizations.

If you were at HIMSS17 and had the chance to visit the Cisco booth, thank you! We know how busy the show was, and we truly appreciate you taking time to learn about Cisco healthcare solutions that can help you personalize patient engagement, deliver remote care and collaboration, and simplify clinician workflows, all while maintaining security and patient privacy.
