How to enjoy #himss17 with Nutanix and Intel, Lenovo, DellEMC, Citrix and more…

I know that not all my readers have heard about HIMSS conference, but for those not in the Healthcare IT space… HIMSS Annual Conference, Feb 19–23 in Orlando, brings together 40,000+ health IT professionals from all over the world. It’s massive!

The adoption of Nutanix in life-critical environments such as Hospitals, Clinics, ER’s and Intensive Therapy Units (ITU) has been extraordinary, boasting 700+ healthcare customers and supporting the most demanding and critical electronic health records (EHR), picture and archiving systems (PACS) and initiatives like bring your own device (BYOD).

Nutanix has been deployed for numerous EHR systems such as Epic, Cerner, Meditech, Intersystems, ChipSoft, McKesson as well as for other use cases like VDI, server virtualization and Big Data applications. As matter of fact, over 31+ life-critical applications are powered by Nutanix today.


I am sure there will be plenty of amazing sessions and events tatted during the conference, but here is what you need to know about enjoying HIMSS17 with Nutanix.
