IRVING, Texas, Oct. 02, 2018 (PRWEB) – HMS (NASDAQ: HMSY) has launched HMS Health Ideas, an online forum to share opinions and innovations in healthcare. The site features videos, blog posts and opinion pieces on timely healthcare topics such as the opioid crisis, Medicaid policy changes, social determinants of health, artificial intelligence technologies and much more.
“This is a very active time in healthcare, with many emerging technologies, changing consumer dynamics and transitions to value-based care,” said Bill Lucia, chairman and CEO for HMS. “Our new Health Ideas website will serve as an industry forum to exchange perspectives on how we can move healthcare forward and challenge the status quo.”
Specifically, one talk-show format video features an interview with bestselling author Debjani Biswas and HMS’ executive vice president and chief strategy officer Cynthia Nustad discussing strategies for enhancing diversity in healthcare IT companies. Biswas also shares insights from her recent book “#UsToo: Bridging the Gender Gap.”
