The CereCore team attended the annual MUSE (Medical Users Software Exchange) Inspire Conference in Nashville, May 28-31. CereCore exhibited and sponsored two site visits and provided three educational sessions during the conference. The educational sessions and keynote speeches organized by MUSE, provided valuable insight to the initiatives, priorities and challenges for the MUSE facility and commercial members. Here are a few sound bites from the conference:
- Interoperability: Initial day of conference focused on interoperability, including a keynote speech titled “The Future of Healthcare IT” by Dr. John Halamka. This speech was followed by additional discussions on APIs, Restful APIs and how organizations are meeting current requirements and planning to meet future requirements.
- Migration to Public Cloud: Organizations continue to leverage industry standard solutions such as, AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud to house key applications. The migration of applications continues to increase and facility members are becoming more and more aware of these solutions and their benefits. There were multiple education sessions on this topic plus various commercial members on the exhibit floor, who work in this space, discussing solutions with facility members.
- MEDITECH Expanse: There was a tipping point on educational sessions, focusing on Expanse compared to other platforms. There were multiple comments and questions from facility members about Expanse, primarily from those on other platforms.
- Optimization: Facility members continue to focus on optimization of their existing MEDITECH environment. This spans all platforms. There was more discussion regarding Revenue Cycle and Supply Chain areas compared to prior years, as organizations look for solutions to address reimbursement and expense challenges.
- New Commercial Members: There were new commercial members on the exhibit floor who typically have not been involved with MUSE in the past. These new commercial members bring fresh ideas and solutions, which more facility members can leverage. In addition, these new commercial members can bring new facility members, which will keep the MUSE community vibrant and relevant.
We are so grateful for the opportunity to participate in MUSE. We enjoyed interacting with the MUSE facility and commercial members, plus learning more about their stories and needs. Every conversation was another chance for us to understand better how we can truly make a difference in this ever-changing landscape of healthcare. Thanks to MUSE for such a fantastic event!
