“Hosting Regina Holliday in the Conduent booth (#951) at HIMSS 2017 is an incredible opportunity to incorporate the voice and perspective of the patient into all that we do in healthcare.” – Rohan Kulkarni, vice president, strategy and portfolio, Conduent Health

HIMSS – where the brightest minds in health and IT meet each year – is almost upon us. The annual conference & exhibition brings together more than 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world, and we’re excited that HIMSS 2017 will be our first in attendance as Conduent. We will be setting up shop in booth #951 this year, demonstrating to visitors how Conduent enables meaningful connections across the healthcare ecosystem every day to advance healthcare.

We’ll be joined by Regina Holliday on February 21 and 22, who will be in the Conduent booth (#951) speaking with visitors and painting representations of her conversations. Holliday is the founder and leader of The Walking Gallery, a movement aiming to visually represent the experience of patients in healthcare, spur conversations on the topic and ultimately act as a catalyst for change and improvement in the industry.

If you’re attending HIMSS this year, consider joining us for our “Turning the Dial on Predictive Analytics” Lunch & Learn on February 21 at 11:15 a.m. You can also be on the lookout for a series of interviews with myself and my colleagues Clayton Nicholas and Heather Haugen in the Show Daily newspapers on the important topics of value-based care, analytics and technology adoption. And if you can’t get your hands on a Show Daily, we’ll also be sharing those Q&As here on the Conduent blog in the coming days.

Over the course of the coming days, we’ll be sharing regular news, articles, insights and photos from HIMSS – plus live-broadcasted interviews with healthcare experts and even special editions of our Healthy Future podcast.
