Joe Lavelle 00:47 Welcome back to a very episode of IntrepidNOW Healthcare where we’ll preview our coverage in collaboration with Experian Health of HIMSS17 on February 20th and 21st. Joining me to help describe what our audience has in story is Cindy Dullea, Chief Marketing Officer of Experian Health. Cindy, thank you so much for helping to share our exciting plans.
Cindy Dullea 01:09 Well, it’s great to be here.
Joe Lavelle 01:11 Cindy, could you please start by providing our audience with a 10,000 foot overview of what you and your team do at Experian Health?
Cindy Dullea 01:18 We are responsible for all the marketing activities across our product line of 55 products in solutions, in the revenue cycle management area of healthcare. We do everything from marketing collateral, to marketing communication, to proposal development, to tradeshows and other types of events across the company.
Joe Lavelle 01:46 Cindy, the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition is by far the most attended healthcare IT event each year. We at IntrepidNOW Healthcare couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off our coverage with you as Experian Health presence at HIMSS17. I want to ask you, could you please describe what you hope to accomplish in Orlando this year?
Cindy Dullea 02:05 Sure, absolutely. Our goal first and foremost at Experian Health is to help our clients an our prospects drive smarter business decisions, really improve their bottom line, grow their relationships with patients. And we’ve got, as I mentioned, a large offering that’s used in over 60% of US Healthcare organizations in the area of revenue cycle, identity management, patient engagement, care management, and of course, the secret sauce for Experian Health is the core that big Experian brings in data and analytics. We’re known in the industry for our award-winning revenue cycle management products. But what the industry may or may not know is that we have a huge focus on innovation and bringing needed products to the market that solve many of those issues that will help them drive those better decisions and solve their problems.
So my hope for this year at HIMSS is that we leave the impression that we’re more than just a revenue cycle management company. And in understanding the healthcare landscape, we strive to help our clients be successful with new innovations to the market.
Joe Lavelle 03:08 That’s awesome Cindy! It could not be any more exciting to know we’re going to give our audience a front row seat as you bring them the best #HIT thought leaders to our show at HIMSS17. People attending HIMSS will be able to listen right in Experian’s booth. And those that are not able to make it to Booth 3503 will be able to listen right on to our website.
Cindy will you tell us what areas you focus on at HIMSS17?
Cindy Dullea 03:32 Sure, absolutely, would love to. This year at HIMSS we’re excited to feature many of those new and leading edge products that are going to include our identity management products and most important, featuring our universal identity manager, our care management products that help with post-acute care and episodic care, care coordination, our data and analytics products that are really going to help us look at leveraging solving products, not just looking at data but actually solving client problems; and our patient engagement products that are really going to put healthcare at the fingertips of the patients and patient’s family to be able to act on their own behalf.
Joe Lavelle 04:17 Outstanding. Cindy, who are the thought leaders that we’ll be interviewing? What types of backgrounds will they have?
Cindy Dullea 4:22 We are making a concentrated effort at Experian Health to have meaningful conversations with our customers and our prospects and we can’t think of a better way to do that at HIMSS than to bring them to our booth to converse to our mutual audience and hear not only from the industry leaders but also get a chance to hear about our innovation through our spotlight sessions that we’re going to be doing in our booth theatre.
Primarily, our guests will be the C-level executives and industry leaders who are on the strategic, technical and operational forefront of the Health Care IT environment every day. So these folks have been challenged to implement those Identity Management products I spoke about as well as patient engagement strategies, care management strategies and certainly to look at how to use data and analytics to do more with the less in the fee for value world.
We’re also going to interview some of our internal Experian Health thought leaders and thought leaders from across many of our partners.
Joe Lavelle 05:21 Outstanding! I can’t wait. I really can’t, Cindy. If there’s someone listening that’s a thought leader on one of these important topics and would like to be considered as a guest of our show, what should they do?
Cindy Dullea 05:31 That’s a great question, Joe. It’s really simple. Just go to Twitter and tweet “I want to #JoinTheConversation”, and we will have someone follow up with you.
Joe Lavelle 05:42 That’s great. I am so excited to be working with your team on this great effort, Cindy. What can you tell us about some of the other things that you will be doing in your booth and at HIMSS in general?
Cindy Dullea 05:52 We’re so excited. We’ve got a jam packed set of activities in our booth this year. On Monday afternoon, Frank Abagnale, you know him as the basis for the Catch Me if You Can movie, is going to be in our booth speaking. He’ll also be doing a feature session for HIMSS.
We’ve got two cocktail receptions, one on Monday and one on Tuesday. The latter is going to be in partnership with one of our partner vendors, HC1, who we partner with for our lab business.
We are also one of the sponsors for the HISTalkapalooza Event at the House of Blues on Monday evening.
In addition to that, those spotlight sessions that I previously mentioned are happening on Monday and Wednesday. Identity management is going to be at 11 AM on Monday in our booth theatre. And then on Wednesday, we’ll have patient engagement at 11 AM, data and analytics at 1 PM and care management at 3 PM.
Joe Lavelle 06:47 Awesome. Cindy, it’s our privilege to be sharing the fun and the remote studio that we’ll put in your booth, 3503, for our show. And I know that the audience will also be educated and entertained by all these thought leaders that we’re going to bring to them thanks to Experian Health. Thank you so much for that.
Cindy Dullea 07:03 Joe, it’s our privilege. We look forward to creating a buzz 0n the show floor.
Joe Lavelle 07:07 We better get back to work on our preparations for this show at HIMSS17. That’s going to wrap this special episode. On behalf of Experian Health friends and specifically Cindy Dullea, I am Joe Lavelle, and we’ll see you soon on intrepidNOW Healthcare.
