ORLANDO, Fla. & WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HiMSS11

MEDecision, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative health management solutions, today kicked off a powerful presence at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HiMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition. The company is leveraging the spotlight of the heavily attended event to showcase its technical innovations for healthcare’s burgeoning accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical home models.

“This week we’re taking full advantage of the forum HiMSS affords us to demonstrate our continued innovation in improving the quality and affordability of care,” said Eric Demers, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for MEDecision. “It’s an opportunity for us to illustrate how the proactive care management tools we’ve been perfecting for more than two decades are essential in the value-based care delivery era, and how that gives us an advantage in helping organizations navigate the changing market.”

A HiMSS Diamond Sponsor, MEDecision’s presence is anchored by its booth (#2563) on the exhibit floor. The company is hosting a number of events and demonstrations to engage attendees and emphasize its message about technology’s important role in the future of healthcare. Highlights include:

  • Demonstrating its recently announced InFrame™ mobile application that brings clinically validated electronic health records to mobile phones, tablets and similar devices.
  • Hosting two presentations by Nathan Moracco, director of the State of Minnesota Employee Insurance Division, demonstrating how the state will use MEDecision’s Nexalign® health decision support service to power its personal health record program. Mr. Moracco will conduct his presentations in the MEDecision booth on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
  • Sponsoring the HiMSS Payer Breakfast on Tuesday, February 22, at 7:00 a.m. This year’s event will focus on ACOs, their implications for improving the cost and quality of care, and the essential role that technology will play in their success.
  • Hosting in its booth the 2011 New Media Meet-up for industry bloggers, social media users and those generally interested in new media on Tuesday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Also, MEDecision is encouraging HiMSS attendees to visit the MEDecision booth during exhibit hours to ‘refuel’. The company is serving complimentary Starbucks® in its booth—the only Starbucks coffee available at HiMSS.

“The MEDecision team is eager to connect with the HiMSS audience and show the market why we’re enthusiastic about where MEDecision is right now and where it’s headed,” Demers said. “We’ve built great momentum recently, and we’re excited about our prospects for continuing that going forward through our ongoing innovation and commitment to excellence.”
