Doctors from around the world have been turning their attention to the latest breakthroughs in healthcare IT this week at the annual meeting of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society in Atlanta, Georgia. Featuring one of the year’s biggest tech expos, the conference is a chance for the society’s more than 20,000 members to see how healthcare is rapidly transforming thanks to an array of new computerized technologies designed to put more information in doctors’ hands.
GE is at the event, where — as we described in our story on Monday — the healthcare team unveiled Qualibria — an innovative computerized system that provides doctors with real-time clinical data and faster access to current research — right at a patient’s side. It’s been developed using three decades of clinical information from the Intermountain Healthcare system of hospitals and through a partnership with the Mayo Clinic. In the video clip below, Dr. Brandon Savage, who is GE Healthcare IT’s Chief Medical Officer, gives an overview of why the HIMSS meeting is so important.
