Asymmetrik Healthcare at Upcoming Conferences
Presenting at Healthcare Symposium & Health Datapalooza
Mar 19, 2019

Next week, Asymmetrik’s healthcare team will be speaking at not one, but two major healthcare conferences: Healthcare Symposium and Health Datapalooza.

Healthcare Symposium

On March 26th, Libby Duryee and Bryan Young will be at the 2019 Healthcare Symposium in Chicago. Hosted by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), the conference focuses on emerging issues in healthcare human factors. Along with our partner Mile Two, we’ll discuss how to design better electronic health record (EHR) systems. We’ll also talk about how we built our award-winning app, Cardiac Consultant.

HFES 2019 Healthcare Symposium

EHR systems present unique design challenges. More often than not, systems capture and display so much data that it’s difficult for healthcare practitioners to process and understand the information quickly. Ideally, practitioners should be able to use EHRs to avoid cognitive overload and make better clinical decisions. With this in mind, engineers and designers need to ensure that systems present the right data to the right people at the right time.

The panel will cover issues including: Are current systems helping or hurting the practice of medicine? How can we improve current EHR systems to reduce cognitive demands and enhance the quality of clinical judgments? How can FHIR® apps give providers a way to improve the EHR workflow and user experience?

Health Datapalooza

On Wednesday, March 27th, Andrew Marcus and Amit Singh will be at Health Datapalooza in Washington D.C. Because Health Datapalooza is a collaboration between policymakers and the technology sector, we expect to have many inspiring conversations about the role of innovation and policy in improving healthcare.

For this event, we’re partnering with Mi2, MedStar Health’s innovation division. Our talk will focus on building interoperable webapps using FHIR®. For non-developers, this will be a great opportunity to visualize how FHIR® technology works, since the presentation will involve audience interaction. In fact, audience members will actually play the roles of each technology component. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be an API, database, or network request, you might just want to check out our session!

2019 is shaping up to be a busy year for Asymmetrik’s healthcare division. Next up, we’ll have exciting news to announce at FHIR® DevDays in Redmond, Washington. In the meantime, our innovative FHIR® solutions continue to support organizations in achieving better health outcomes. If you think our approach to digital health can help your organization, contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
