Dell EMC focuses on precision medicine, connected health, security at HIMSS18
Two years ago, @Dell and @EMC made headlines for completing one of the largest tech mergers in history, the $67 billion acquisition by Dell of EMC’s #cloudcomputing and #bigdata business. Now, at HIMSS18, @DellEMC will be demonstrating how companies can make digital transformation a reality in such arenas as accountable care and the EHR. “Our focus is under four initiatives: #healthIT, #precisionmedicine, #connectedhealth and #securitytransformation,” said @RobertaKatz, director of Global Industries. “We will have demos based on our four pillars, based on the healthcare cloud. We’ll be demonstrating #virtualreality.” Many clients are still spending a lot of time on their clinical applications, Katz said. Hospitals can have 500 or 600 applications and want to know how to streamline those and become more efficient. “The way they do it is around infrastructure,” she said. This can be a multi-cloud environment for a business application or clinical application. Dell EMC is also working on projects around precision medicine, genomics and managing risk. This includes working with independent software vendors on clinical applications, EHRs and working with clinical partners to build apps for healthcare exchanges. “As part of our value proposition, we have a significant set of healthcare partners,” Katz said. Dell will be in Booth 3613.
