Healthcare IT industry experts will congregate at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) AsiaPac13 Greater China eHealth Forum this summer to discuss strategies, challenges, and outcomes of IT adoption in the healthcare industry.

Delegates will experience emerging technologies and engage in discussions about enhancing patient care and safety using IT on August 1 and 2 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.

The Clinician IT Symposium will focus on the effects of IT on delivery improvement, safety, and quality assurance in various healthcare establishments, the Asia-Pacific arm of HIMSS said.
