HIMSS20: Wolters Kluwer experts discuss innovative technology powering population health management and reducing care variation

At the HIMSS20 conference, experts from Wolters Kluwer will be guiding this discussion, providing key insight into how healthcare leaders can drive more consistent outcomes across the continuum of care.

Mending Healthcare 2020, the independent survey commissioned by Wolters Kluwer, found that 98% of consumers agree that there are variations in care across locations, health systems and even among departments in the same hospital. To extend high quality healthcare to everyone, everywhere, innovation in healthcare delivery is of vital importance and a key theme at #HIMSS20. At this year’s conference, experts from Wolters Kluwer will be guiding this discussion, providing key insight into how healthcare leaders can drive more consistent outcomes across the continuum of care. HIMSS20 takes place March 9-13 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
