Following HIMSS last year, we wrote about the growing brand presence within the healthcare space of companies such as Amazon, Cisco, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Qualcomm, Uber, and Verizon. The influence of these companies, along with the steady push of digital and connected health technologies into the gaps of care continuity, has continued to grow into 2019—albeit with some notable changes.
This tradeshow summary discusses some of these changes along with providing an overview of key industry trends that were highlighted during the conference and the interpretation of these trends within our reporting. It also discusses recent activity from the traditional health technology providers including GE, Philips, Siemens, AGFA, and Change. The topics covered include cloud, digital health, AI, mixed reality, interoperability, patient engagement, and business model innovation.
