2017 HIMSS Conference Recap
Mar 03, 2017
Last week, we showcased our patented cloud-based fax solutions at the annual HIMSS Conference! The etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN) and the etherFAX Integration Module (EIM) were presented to thousands of health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors. We also made several announcements including our second U.S. patent and the growth of SEN to six million connected endpoints.
As we predicted, common themes at HIMSS involved how to improve security, interoperability, and patient care. Major concerns within the healthcare industry revolve around the ability to securely exchange unstructured data across applications and EMRs.
We met with some of the brightest minds in healthcare and IT to ease their concerns with the etherFAX Secure Exchange Network (SEN) and the etherFAX Integration Module (EIM). etherFAX SEN is the world’s largest fax network, leveraging military-grade encryption and hybrid cloud technology to provide 100 percent secure communications. The etherFAX Integration Module (EIM) bridges the gap between traditional fax systems and etherFAX cloud technology. By extending legacy systems and applications to the cloud, documents are securely delivered to EMRs and specified fax endpoints via HTTPS.
We were excited to listen to inspiring keynote speakers including Shark Tank stars Kevin O’Leary and Robert Herjavec. Innovation investor Kevin O’Leary made interesting points highlighting the slow transmission speeds of health-critical reports such as MRIs. O’Leary stated he could manage all 935 of his investments and move capital between Hong Kong, Geneva, and the U.S. with the simple click of a button. While trillion dollar transactions are conducted like this every day, O’Leary is still unable to easily transfer his MRI to his primary physician.
O’Leary would be pleased to know that etherFAX has taken this issue head on. With ultra-fast transmission speeds, etherFAX technology enables healthcare organizations to send 100 page documents, MRIs, EKGs, x-rays and other high-resolution data within seconds.
Last but certainly not least, we were happy to support and join forces with fellow etherFAX customers Imecom, Biscom, and MultiTech at the conference! Our presence at HIMSS generated new business leads and formed new relationships with healthcare professionals and technology experts.
We are looking forward to attending HIMSS 2018 with an even bigger presence!
