Meet us on the red carpet at HIMSS ’13

HIMSS 2013 kicks off today in the Big Easy, New Orleans! Healthcare professionals are descending on the conference to check out hot trends in healthcare, see the new products, and maybe hear more about Bill Clinton and his Foundation’s mission to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment.

Events manager Nate Johnston gets his style on testing out the red carpet pre-HIMSS

We’ve got the red carpet laid out to show off the star of our healthcare point-of-care portfolio, Ergotron’s next generation StyleView Medical Carts. They are hanging out in the cart corral in booth #3011 so stop over to take one for a spin.

@Heatherrou is our social bee, keeping you engaged in all the sight and sounds from the event. If you catch her avatar don’t be alarmed, she doesn’t have any monitor arms attached to her anywhere! She will be found manning the question of the day or tweeting with the cool professionals in the social media lounge. Look her up!

@betseybanker is ready to greet any of you media-types. She has some goodies ready for you if you stop by.

@djkiger and @ergosteve and the whole crew at HIMSS are ready to roll up their sleeves, and after a Beignet from Cafe Du Monde, get down to showing you why Ergotron has been a leader in healthcare for over 20 years.

We know you have a lot to grasp, from Obamacare to meaningful use, lots of new ideas to process through the brainbox. What we hope you remember is that whatever new process or compliance issue you are facing, Ergotron is well equipped to help you bring that information to the point of care.  

And while you are accessing that critical data, in the patient room, hall, nurse’s station, lab, or back office, why not consider standing while you do it? The act of standing more has a host of benefits including reducing the associated risks of sedentary workstyles. Over 80% of our point-of-care solutions offer you the option to sit or stand as your body demands throughout your shift. Here’s the concept in a nutshell—you care the patients and let us care for you.

See you on the show floor? We hope so. We’ll have the popcorn out for you. Just meet us on the red carpet for a new experience in healthcare history…

Advancing eHealth in Europe: A WoHIT objective

Nancy Gregson, Sr. Global Events Manager @ Ergotron

It has been a busy couple of days here at the World of Health IT (WoHIT) in Barcelona. Doesn’t the stand look terrific?

Monday kicked off an invitation only ministerial day, hosted by the Spanish EU Presidency, the European Commission, and the Regional Government of Catalonia.

According to the WoHIT, this is the first time the conference has been held in conjunction with the European Union’s annual High Level eHealth Conference with an objective is to create the largest European high level platform for stakeholders sharing the common goal of advancing eHealth in Europe.

During the lull in the action we managed a quick Ergotron team photo.

WoHIT setup: Day 2

Nancy Gregson, Sr. Global Events Manager @ Ergotron

Welkom to Inge Van Noort, Ergotron’s Healthcare Industry Manager for EMEA, who arrived today ready for setup and some fun assembling product and building the Ergotron stand. Spirits were high despite the 12 hour day as it is also Sem’s birthday. “Gelukkige verjaardag, Sem!”  

Overall the day progressed nicely. I certainly learned we can never have enough power adaptors.  We had monitors from the UK, computers from US, and luckily had invested in multiple converters. 

We also found out that our awesome software, StyleLink Software for StyleView powered carts, is pretty easy to set up on Windows 7.  And always a pleasure to see some old friends from Man & Machine; their keyboards look so clean on our carts! 

Tomorrow brings the first day of the exhibition with a press tour through the hall kicking off at 12:30 and more of Ergotron team arriving including Roger Alverez and Jean Baptiste Testa.  

As you can see, we haven’t started this year’s event and we are saving the date for next year in Budapest.

WoHIT 2010: Hurry up, wait, and bring your ID…

Buenos días from World of Health IT (WoHIT) 2010 in Barcelona! Pictures say a thousand words, right? This is what Sem Wildenburg, EMEA Marketing Events Coordinator, and I saw this morning when we went to the International Convention Center.

As you can see, not much had started.  Some last minute security concerns from the convention bureau kept any set up of stand structures from happening yesterday. But it was nice to see that the only people working this morning were working on Ergotron’s stand (213).  
 
 
 
We have been told that tomorrow night the “vigilante police” will bring in sniffing dogs around the show floor to make sure it is secure before the opening on Monday. 
A last minute email also informed us that all exhibitors must provide a passport when they come and go throughout the week.  It is good to know our new StyleView® carts will be nicely guarded. 

It’s going to be a terrific event, showing the European healthcare community Ergotron’s latest StyleView carts and roadmap, along with the broad portfolio of point-of-care solutions for the entire healthcare facility.

Follow our booth building progress on Facebook, check back here for more updates, or get to know the European Ergotron team at @ergoHIT on Twitter.  

Hasta mañana!
