Innovative Healthcare Technologies to Make a Splash at HX360

Innovative Healthcare Technologies to Make a Splash at HX360With HIMSS15 at McCormick Place in Chicago now just three weeks away, we’re learning more about what’s on tap for the inaugural HX360 event.

HX360 will focus on advancing the use of health technology innovations that improve clinical workflow, care coordination and patient experience, and foster collaborations to improve development and adoption of novel health technologies, as well as work on the structures and processes within delivery systems that will make their use successful, according to a statement emailed to mHealthWatch today.

HX360 is looking beyond electronic health records, to next-generation technologies, such as mobile health, wearables, sensors and remote monitoring devices and other digital tools that are changing care delivery for both patients and providers. HX360’s interactive sessions, networking events and vibrant Innovation Pavilion will set the stage for collaboration between investors, healthcare providers and entrepreneurs.

“The HX360 conference General Program takes a comprehensive look at how post-EHR technologies are improving care delivery, and how patients and consumers are managing their own health and wellness,” organizers say. “Sessions will cover how health systems are leveraging resources inside and out of the hospital, innovative approaches to patient engagement and the Patient-Centered Care Plan. Presentations will also explore future applications of data analytics, continuity of care and next generation health gaming opportunities. ”

As of this writing, we can confirm that dedicated exhibit areas in the Pavilion, highlighting companies, products and innovations will include:

Startup Showcase – offering innovators and entrepreneurs a platform for interacting with the HX360 and HIMSS15 audiences.

Accelerator Hubs – showcasing corporate venture investment, strategic partnerships/pilots as well as programs aimed at accelerating commercialization of technology solutions in healthcare.

Marketplace – highlighting mature and later stage companies with new innovations.

Games for Health – created in partnership with the Games for Health Project, this interactive, hands-on area represents the increasing role videogames and gamification are having in healthcare today.

HX360 Innovation Challenge – play-off style competition and live showdown between four finalist companies with innovative products and solutions designed to improve patient experience in healthcare, care coordination or primary care management. The two top companies will receive funding to run pilot programs with major health systems following the event. Judges will be expert health system and VC executives.
