HIMSS Strives to Help Build Healthcare Financial Network of the Future

Conference Attendees Interested in Medical Banking are Welcome at the 8th National Medical Banking Institute @ HIMSS10 in Atlanta

CHICAGO – (December 8, 2009) –  Designing the Healthcare Financial Network of the Future, a centerpiece program that seeks to support overall health improvements by leveraging banking systems, will be offered on March 1-2, 2010 at the Omni Hotel in Atlanta, Ga. The program is held in conjunction with the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition at the Georgia World Congress Center from March 1-4, 2010.

The program’s theme focuses on a new, multi-year global strategy tied to HIMSS’ acquisition of the Medical Banking Project earlier this year.  The Medical Banking Institute@HIMSS10 is open to all HIMSS attendees interested in the medical banking area.

“Demands on financial systems, both domestic and global, have created new roles for banks, said John Casillas, senior vice president, HIMSS MBProject, Business and Financial Systems. “There is a growing need for banking systems to improve fiscal processes for payers and providers.”

Industry leaders representing payers, providers and other stakeholders will convene in a neutral setting to identify and discuss critical path issues that currently impede cross-industry efficiency.  Topics include emerging functions in the new ‘health-wealth’ paradigm to standards and best practices that simplify and automate workflows.

The Institute will feature sessions on health data privacy and security in banking channels as well as:

  • Discussion that contextualizes general healthcare trends against medical banking metrics;
  • A senior level banking panel that will help healthcare providers and payers to understand how banks are investing in revenue management technologies;
  • Case studies that show the emergence of bank-driven community care platforms and more.

Preceding the Institute, the HIMSS Medical Banking Boot Camp will offer attendees an overview on the emerging role of banks and financial institutions in healthcare. The Boot Camp will meet from 1-5 p.m. on Feb. 28, 2010 at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Registration for the Institute and Boot Camp is now open. Hotel reservations can be made through Ambassadors.
