The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held February 29 through March 4, 2016 in Las Vegas. Although HIMSS covers a broader range of topics than telemedicine, we encourage you to stop in and take a look if you’ll be in the area. HIMSS offers a rich resource for keeping abreast of the latest research and legislation in the healthcare industry, as well as opportunities for education and certification as a health IT professional.
Oh, and one last thing: Super Bowl Winning Quarterback and Five-Time NFL MVP Peyton Manning will give the closing keynote address. What does football have to do with health IT? I have no idea, but success principles are the same no matter the industry!

There was a nice little write-up by John Lynn at the EMR & HIPAA site about Revolve Robotics‘ Kubi robot. Although we weren’t the focus of the article, there was a nice paragraph about needing swyMed for Kubi’s healthcare applications due to being HIPAA compliant while still having Kubi controls baked in.

In response to customer requests, we have just added new user type for our software: “Patient.” Patient users are not able to search the user directory, meaning that a care provider can keep all their patients in their groups and directories for easy access while maintaining the utmost privacy. A doctor can give a patient swyMed software, set them up with a Patient account with the doctor in the presence list, and the patient can’t search or see other doctors or patients, fully complying with HIPAA.
We created this user type so that swyMed can be given to individuals on their home PCs, smartphones or tablets, to connect to their doctor, and know that their privacy is protected.
In the past, most of our clients installed our software on devices owned by their facility, which either restricted use to the facility or required loaning devices to patients. Now with the Patient user type, they can throw the doors open and give the software to anyone, anywhere.
This is just one more way that we are allowing our healthcare customers to have the workflow they want, rather than a Rube Goldberg procedure for contacting patients while maintaining full compliance.
