This IDC Market Perspective provides a look at what some of the vendors in the print hardcopy and solutions space were focusing on at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Global Conference & Exhibition. It also provides an overview of hot topics at HIMSS19 and essential guidance to vendors participating in this market. HIMSS brings together over 45,000 healthcare and information technology professionals and over 1,300 vendors from around the world. This year's conference was held February 11-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
"Similar to last year at HIMSS, we noticed hardcopy vendors focusing less on their printers and MFPs, with some not even displaying any MFPs in their booths, and focusing more on solutions to automate workflow processes, increase compliance and security, improve care levels, and better the work environment for healthcare providers." — Allison Correia, senior research analyst, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions
