While many conferences struggle to attract enough qualified participants, Bio-IT World Conference & Expo is an example of a conference that continues to grow by leaps and bounds in terms of both conference events and the number of attendees. With 12 tracks, it covers the gamut of how technology helps to leverage data, all in the name of transforming medicine. It is especially of interest to Liaison how these organizations are moving forward to figure out how to take advantage of the vast amount of information available to them, something that, for the most part, been stovepipe and neglected. Sessions on cloud computing and HIT solutions for personalized medicine and informatics were often standing room only and the keynote speaker required an “overflow” room for the first time.
It’s time for me to get back to the show floor, but I don’t want to sign off without saying congrats to our customer Merck, as well as the other winners of the Bio-IT World Best Practice 2012 Award winners. It’s really a compliment when competitors of some of these organizations mention that they are really impressed with the results that they delivered as a result of implementing these best practices.
Are you following any of these best practices?
Until next time,
