Healthcare organizations are navigating financial challenges on several fronts: rising expenses, slow reimbursement rates, labor shortages, lost investments, negative margins and more. 

The 2023 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition, widely regarded as the Davos Summit of healthcare information and technology, will take a deep dive into the volatile economic landscape and possible solutions. 

Registration is open for HIMSS23. The health ecosystem will converge to discover Health that Connects Tech that Cares, also the conference theme this year.   

Slated for April 17-21 in Chicago, HIMSS23 convenes top healthcare workforce experts and disruptors for can’t-miss experiences for trainings, special forums, education sessions and exhibition. 

Featured Speakers 

Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, takes to the HIMSS23 keynote stage to speak on the economic outlook for the next few years. Zandi will address the following questions and more. 

  • With the Federal Reserve determined to quickly rein in inflation, recession looks increasingly likely. But is it inevitable?  
  • What would have to happen to avoid a downturn?  
  • Business leaders, consumers, and workers alike are voicing deep anxiety and uncertainty about the future. If a recession occurs, how severe and long is it likely to be?
