Ascellon was represented at the 2017 Annual HIMMS Conference in Orlando in February.  There were many exciting and cutting edge products and innovations to be seen at the conference.  From Ascellon’s perspective, the most exciting things happening at the intersection of information technology (IT) and patient care today are cost reduction, and privacy and security.

Foremost on everyone’s mind is the risk posed to patients by unauthorized access to medical records and identifying data.  Beyond the usual identity theft issues, there could be life-threatening consequences if unauthorized or malicious activities are introduced into a medical device that is in active use, or even the interception of an electronic prescription.  Several vendors exhibited new and exciting products to counter such threats.  Ascellon has developed channel partnerships that will allow us to recommend the best solutions for our customers based on the relationships we have developed with industry leaders in this field.

In the next post, we will discuss how cutting edge IT systems are helping providers and payers to control cost without jeopardizing quality of care.
