Change Healthcare will be front and center at the HIMSS18 conference in Las Vegas, demonstrating throughout the show how its ongoing investments in the key solution areas of revenue cycle management and analytics, along with technology investments in blockchain and AI, are keeping the company’s focus on its dedication to practical innovation.
As this is the first HIMSS conference for the new Change Healthcare, the company will be highly visible, sharing our vision to inspire a better healthcare system.
