Emilio Gallego, CEO of UMANICK, was a key note speaker in the specialized conferences on security in health of HIMSS@Hospitalar, the International Forum of Digital Health 2018 in Sao Paulo, Brazil (http://www.hospitalar.com/en/forum-eng/himss-eng), on May 22nd, with the title “Biometric Identification in Healthcare – Privacy & Security” (http://www.hospitalar.com/en/speaker/emilio-gallego).
HIMSS (http://www.himss.org/), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society, is the largest and most prestigious organization in the world focused on the improvement of healthcare through information technologies. It is a non-profit organization with a presence throughout the world.
Among other activities, HIMSS organizes high-level conferences around the world, attended by healthcare executives.
These conferences are held within the framework of HOSPITALAR (http://www.hospitalar.com/en/), the leading health event in Latin America, where companies and other leading organizations in the sector are present.
HIMSS’s choice of biometrics within the conference cycle demonstrates its awareness of the level of need for safe patient identification in hospitals in Brazil and other Latin American countries, as well as its recognition of biometrics as the only unequivocal way of identifying patients.
HIMSS looked for an expert speaker to discuss biometrics and patient safety at its main conference in Latin America. At UMANICK we thank HIMSS for distinguishing us with its choice, understanding our high level of specialization and knowledge in the field.
