5 questions for HIMSS this year

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society 2018 annual conference and exhibition, hosted in Las Vegas, begins March 5.

Here are five questions for attendees to consider.

1. Has the world moved beyond the big EMR spend, or are there billions left in that?

2. Will there be a fully new level of EMR as it moves to cloud-based solutions? What will be the impact on EMR giants like Epic and Cerner?

3. Will spending on all kinds of applications dwarf, or will the long-term spending equal EMR spend?

4. Which areas of apps will be the most sought after: artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, security, service line tops, or virtual or remote healthcare? Or will it be something else?

5. What is the mix of CIOs compared to other clinical leadership roles in determining the spend?
