The brightest minds from the healthcare industry came together last week in Orlando, FL for HIMSS'17. Innovations in healthcare IT took center stage, with the features of our patient-oriented Health Cloud drawing lots of attention. Alongside our innovative features in the Health Cloud, we also had a fantastic rock and roll Trailblazer Party featuring a live performance from Fitz and the Tantrums! We even kicked off all of the HIMSS fun with Healthcare Week on the Salesforce Blog! Healthcare Week featured lots of content including spotlights on the Health Cloud, Partners, Innovation, data, and, most importantly, our customers.
