Bob Zemke Director of Healthcare Solutions Published 8 Feb 2017

The annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference connects more than 40,000 healthcare IT professionals and vendors from across the globe. Attendees are given the opportunity to network with other industry leaders and participate in more than 300 educational sessions, workshops and panels covering a robust range of topics. Healthcare is constantly evolving, and hospitals and IT professionals must adapt to ensure they are meeting patient expectations and providing quality access to care.

At this year’s conference in Orlando, Florida, Extreme Networks will be announcing software-related news that impacts hospitals and healthcare organizations. The Extreme team will also be speaking at several sessions throughout HIMSS 2017 about topics ranging from aligning mobile strategies with business goals, to applying location technologies in clinical environments.
