HIMSS23: Connecting Innovative Tools with Patient-Centered Care

The final day of the 2023 HIMSS Global Conference and Exhibition in Chicago closed with a keynote discussion featuring Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin.

Hamlin spoke about his recovery and outlook after his sudden collapse due to a cardiac event during a Monday Night Football match in January against the Cincinnati Bengals. When asked whether his approach to improving on the field has changed since his health emergency, he said his ethos has stayed the same.

“You have to put the work in. You have to be consistent, disciplined and just have integrity,” Hamlin said.

The athlete’s perspective and recent experience echoed this year’s overarching conference theme, “Health That Connects and Tech That Cares.”

More patients and consumers are expecting care that treats the whole person instead of piecemeal, disparate services. Many Gen Z patients, for example, are expecting providers to ask them about how nonmedical factors, such as housing and food access, affect their health. 

How can healthcare organizations meet these expectations amid tight budgets and staffing concerns? Experts at HIMSS23 shared their experiences deploying solutions powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning and building up stronger partnerships.
