ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 05, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- HIMSS has named Mark Heaney, Chief

Strategist & Founding Partner, Get Real Health and Adrian Byrne, CIO, University Southampton NHS Foundation Trust as speakers for the 2019 HIMSS Global Conference & Exhibition, held February 11-15, 2019 in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. HIMSS19 brings together 45,000+ health information and technology professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world. Exceptional education, excellent speakers, cutting-edge health information and technology products and powerful networking are hallmarks of this industry-leading conference.

This session, Accelerating Transformation Through Policy and Technology, will explore the ways in which both policy and technology advances are enabling Get Real Health's client, the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS), to share its award-winning innovations with other UK National Health Service Trusts. Global Digital Exemplar, UHS, will blueprint their journey, best practices and lessons learned in their quest to deliver digital capabilities more quickly and cost-effectively to others. This session will detail how a successful interoperable PHR, powered by Get Real Health technology, was implemented to eliminate data silos, and facilitate a free- flow of information between organizations and care teams. This information gateway led to a reduction in unnecessary appointments for patients, improved communications and increased patient engagement overall. All HIMSS attendees are encouraged to join, with a target audience of CIOs, CTOs, Government or Public Policy and Population Health Management Professionals.

The HIMSS Annual Conference Education Committee (ACEC) selected over 300 educational sessions on the conference program. Proposals under review by the ACEC have gone through a peer-review selection process for enhanced efficiency and quality in selection of the educational offerings at the conference. This committee, comprised of HIMSS volunteers, reviews and selects all presentations with those representing an organization or non-commercial interest given preference, a guideline followed to achieve continuing medical education or CME requirements.

"Given the intense vetting process, we are honored to be chosen as a speaker for HIMSS19," said Get Real Health President and CEO, Robin Wiener. "There is no discounting the fact that policy plays a huge role in the adoption of health IT. UHS is a stellar example of how organizations can have great success when coupling an open data platform with governmental support to foster data sharing and engagement."
