Perficient to showcase expertise in business intelligence and
analytics, portals and interoperability solutions at HIMSS 2013
ST. LOUIS -- (Business Wire)
The healthcare industry is continually challenged with addressing
regulatory requirements, lowering cost of care and improving patient
health. In the wake of accountable care and the movement toward
population health management, the focus for healthcare organizations has
turned to inviting patients into the care model. Perficient,
Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting
firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout
North America, today announced it will attend the 2013
HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition from March 3 – 7 in New
Orleans, where its healthcare technology experts will showcase how it’s
helping organizations better address these challenges head on.
“Two forces are colliding in the industry,” said Martin Sizemore,
principal, healthcare strategic advisory services at Perficient.
“Healthcare executives continue to face demands to control costs and
demonstrate quality improvements. Simultaneously, healthcare consumers
are bringing their experience from other industries to their healthcare
decisions, and demanding better collaboration with their providers and
As a result of this shift toward consumer-centric healthcare, Perficient
has experienced meaningful growth in its healthcare practice, delivering
business intelligence and analytics, portal and collaboration, and
interoperability and information exchange solutions. These solutions
help organizations provide instantaneous access to patient and clinical
information, streamline core business processes, and improve
interactions with patients, physicians, administrators and partners.
“If healthcare organizations are to manage, evaluate and transform
healthcare delivery under these evolving market conditions, they must
realize there is an important underlying theme throughout it all –
patient engagement,” continued Sizemore. “At Perficient, we’ve seen an
increase in demand from clients needing help designing and implementing
healthcare technology solutions to both address the need for authentic
communications and collaboration, and to ensure that patient interaction
produces meaningful, actionable information to transform delivery of
care and lower overall costs.”
Witness Perficient’s Healthcare Expertise in Action
Perficient experts will be on hand in Booth #1555 to discuss key focus
areas top of mind for healthcare organizations – business
intelligence and analytics, social
and collaboration, and integration
and interoperability. Specifically, visitors to the booth can learn
how, through its partnerships with leading technology innovators – IBM,
– Perficient drives faster, more cost effective healthcare technology
solutions for its clients.
Additionally, Perficient’s Martin Sizemore will lead the “Patient
Engagement: Transforming the Healthcare Experience” TweetUp, which
will be held Wednesday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Social
Media Center in Lobby G. The #epatient TweetUp will focus on how
providers are designing secure and engaging patient portals for access
to records, and how the world of social media is shaping patient
expectations around caregiver interaction.
To further address the patient engagement topic, Perficient has released
a new white paper, “Patient
360: The Complete View of Patient Engagement,” in conjunction with
the HIMSS 2013 conference. This whitepaper will discuss how healthcare
organizations can end the long-running trend of low patient engagement,
along with the dangerously high cost of care, by shifting to true
patient engagement that holds the patient experience, and the power of
the resulting data, at the forefront of healthcare business strategy.
