OFFICIAL STATEMENTAs of March 4, 2020, Medicomp Systems is canceling its participation in the 2020 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition, March 9–13, 2020 in Orlando to protect the health and safety of its staff from the growing spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
“In light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we have concluded that our attendance at HIMSS poses an unacceptable health risk for our staff and their families,” said David Lareau, Medicomp CEO. “At a global event that draws more than 40,000 people, and in a state where the governor has declared a public health emergency, it seems inevitable that the virus will be circulating in the exhibit hall, hotels, and/or airports. Despite the significant financial and people investments we’ve made in advance of the conference, we feel it is our moral imperative to put the health and safety of our people and communities first.”
Medicomp looks forward to rescheduling meetings with customers and partners who were scheduled for demonstrations at HIMSS20 of its new integrated solution with emtelligent’s NLP and/or to preview Holy Name’s state-of-the-art HIS, powered by Medicomp.
