Microsoft is certainly no stranger to transforming industries, from retail and financial services to manufacturing, and government, we are focused on empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. That’s why it’s the perfect time to join our customers and partners while we all take stock of where we are and what we’ve learned—and set a course to reimagine healthcare. Microsoft has booked our booth for HIMSS22 in Orlando, March 14 – 17, 2022, where the industry represents the latest advances, industry innovations, and future ambitions. Register for HIMSS today.

Microsoft will focus its innovation on helping organizations reimagine healthcare through speaking sessions, lunch and learn programming, partner engagements, customer meetings, and both in-person and virtual booth tours. We will demonstrate the unique capabilities of Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare, built on top of the secure, compliant Microsoft cloud that offers healthcare organizations the scale and performance they need for managing their specific workflows, accelerating access to data insights, and unifying data governance that helps their organization manage and govern their data, wherever it resides.  

We’re excited for what’s in store—both in person and virtually at HIMSS22! Here are my top 9 highlights that I recommend:

1. Microsoft booth #2300

Join us at the Microsoft Booth, Level 2 of the West Hall of the OCCC. The booth will feature space for exclusive one-to-one meetings, immersive customer demos, and opportunities for our partners and customers to showcase their industry and world impact. Guided tours and live demonstrations of Microsoft healthcare innovation make it easier for organizations to create personalized patient experiences, gives health teams connected collaboration tools, and adopt data standards that are important to healthcare.

The development and use of machine learning algorithms have significant promise. Despite these promises, the risk of coded bias in healthcare algorithms remains a concern. This session will explore these risks and ways to mitigate them.

6. Lunch and learn sessions

Lunch and learn sessions are the best way to get up close with technology and uncover stories from healthcare partners and customers. Bonus: Lunch is included. Space is limited, so register early for these fan favorites! Here is a list of my top favorites:

  • Empower care teams on the frontline with tools to help reduce their burnout and provide the best possible care.

This experience will be a guided tour by a host who will do a walkthrough of the booth and highlight select demo stations to bring to life the riches of the content. This will also enable attendees to ask questions at the moment, allowing for immediate answers resulting in deeper engagement. ​
