Medix IT Embraces New Era of Healthcare Delivery at HIMSS11 Conference

Lombard, IL, February 19, 2011 --( Medix IT, a division of Medix Staffing Solutions, Inc. dedicated to staffing qualified IT professionals specialized in Healthcare Information Technology, will be traveling to Orlando, Fla., for the upcoming 2011 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, Feb. 20-24, 2011, at the Orange County Convention Center. Recognized as one of the premier conferences in the healthcare industry, HIMSS11 brings together healthcare professionals across the globe for this annual gathering.

Medix IT will be demonstrating the benefits of utilizing HIT staffing to attract and retain HIT talent at booth #3188 on the HIMSS exhibit floor. The Medix team anticipates capitalizing on this highly informative and interactive forum to demonstrate to HIT professionals how staff augmentation can be a vital tool in implementing key strategies within their organizations.

“The HIT industry is under enormous pressure to achieve Meaningful Use, ICD-10 readiness and numerous other HIT initiatives in a timely manner,” said Jason Flanagan, HIT Practice Leader at Medix. “The 21st Annual HIMSS Leadership Survey cited ‘Lack of Adequate Staffing Resources’ as the number one barrier to achieving Meaningful Use. Our team of HIT-specific recruiters gives us the ability to provide key talent to healthcare providers in order to achieve their initiatives.”

The HIMSS annual conference is expected to attract about 29,000 attendees, ranking it as one of the largest healthcare IT and management systems conference in the world. Attendees who visit the conference participate in education sessions, and networking events, in addition to visiting the exhibits. The 2011 conference includes more than 300 education sessions plus pre-conference education sessions with symposia on 5010/ICD-10, achieving meaningful use, ARRA usability, clinical engineering, health information exchanges (HIEs), nursing informatics, payers, physicians' IT, RFID in healthcare and secondary use of data.

“We are excited to be a first time exhibitor at HIMSS11,” said Flanagan. “The convergence of the HIT community in one location is a great opportunity to network with those who may benefit from the high level of staff augmentation services that Medix has to offer.”
