Good UX Means Good Business
In a world where technology is rapidly advancing and user expectations are rising, it’s no longer enough to have an average user experience; to delight your users and surpass your competition you must strive for the exceptional.
KATE: What are you looking forward to most?
TERIE: I am looking forward to seeing what the latest trends are in terms of how customers are using technology and what vendors are doing to position their portfolio to match. I always enjoy seeing big ideas in healthcare analytics because for so long providers have been content with a myopic view of analytics. I also enjoy learning about how to apply emerging technology to healthcare solutions.
KATE: What trends/topics do you anticipate will be a focus at HIMSS?
TERIE: I think Population Health, including Cost of Care, and Connected Health, specifically, telehealth, wearables and consumerism are the hot topics. It is hard to really say “focus” on these broad topics because they are so pervasive but I think if you were to walk through the exhibit hall and take a poll, they would emerge as the most used phrases. I am also noticing a great deal of content and educational sessions available for these topics. I have limited time for attending sessions but plan to attend a few on these subjects myself.
KATE: If you could give one piece of advice to a first-time HIMSS attendee what would it be?
TERIE: Try to balance being progressive (amidst the vendor sales hype) with real-world stories from your peers. I think events like this get lost in the hype of the latest new shiny object but there is real value in meeting your peers and learning from their approach.
