Overview | The Healthcare Messaging Conference & Exhibition



  • Case study presentations and actionable information for attendees looking to adopt, extend or replace messaging solutions
  • Face-to-face networking opportunities with messaging thought leaders, users and solution providers
  • First hand demonstrations of solutions in a single location
  • Expand your awareness and understanding of the healthcare messaging market


Messaging software architectures underlie some of the most important and fastest growing segments of healthcare IT. While messaging is the term we use, most applications use terminology focused on workflow automation facilitated by messages generated by users or the messaging system.

According to a study published earlier this year by Spok, 52% of hospitals have adopted systems for secure messaging and collaboration, 30% are evaluating, and 18% have no plans. Many of the providers that have adopted messaging are looking to extend or replace their initial purchase to access advanced features or additional workflows.


  • An executive, clinician or manager at a hospital, healthcare system, post-acute care facility, physician group and/or healthcare trading partner, including nursing, physicians, IT and biomedical/clinical engineering staff
  • A healthcare IT vendor impacted by messaging system adoption and messaging solution providers
  • A consultant, government official, academic, venture capitalist, angel investor, private equity firm or investment banker.

  • Alarm notification
