HIMSS15 Sees Continued Focus on Analytics and Pop Health

At last year’s HIMSS in Orlando it was pretty obvious “analytics” and “pop health” were the new “meaningful use”, with exhibit hall signage dominated by the terms. This year we expect the same, if not more, as the industry digests the newly released proposed rule  for Stage 3 meaningful use which focuses on improving population health outcomes as a whole.

HIMSS15 offers conference attendees a wealth of education sessions on analytics. Below are some of the highlights.
