EHR, CLOUD, TELEHEALTH, CYBERSECURITY, DATA ANALYTICS AND MEDICATION MANAGEMENT INTEGRATION TAKE CENTER STAGE AT HIMSS 2018: Industry experts converged to discuss ways to implement technology that would help facilitate health data interoperability and accessibility for consumers, payers, and providers during the HIMSS 2018 conference in Las Vegas last week.
A key area of personal interest was the importance of medication management and its integration encouraging discussion on pro-activity in medication error reductions and patient safety through lack of integration.
