The goal of the DHTP Program is to connect HIMSS-vetted partners designing world-class solutions to healthcare providers to drive transformation for healthcare globally.

“Today, 30% of the world’s data is generated by the healthcare industry.

The Pivot Point Consulting-HIMSS partnership will play a key role in advancing digital healthcare.

“Expansion of the global digital health ecosystem by using the HIMSS maturity models enables improved outcomes, clinical quality and improved experiences for patients and provider staff,” said HIMSS Chief Products Officer Reid Oakes. “Adding Pivot Point’s implementation and advisory capabilities to the Digital Health Technology Partnership program ensures providers have access to proven thought leaders so they can accelerate their journeys for better provider and patient experiences around the world.”

“As we embark on this journey to accelerate data innovation to help people live healthier lives, digitizing the patient experience is the jet fuel, and the analytics and AI ecosystem is the engine that powers this journey,” said Ryan Sousa, Pivot Point Consulting’s Vice President of Analytics & AI. “One only needs to look at how companies like Amazon reshaped retail, Expedia reshaped travel and Airbnb reshaped hospitality to appreciate the magnitude of the impact on healthcare.
