Edifecs, a healthcare solutions provider specializing in information management and compliance technology, will exhibit (booth #347) at the 2014 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition Feb. 25-26 in Orlando. Edifecs will highlight the potential cost savings available to provider organizations that engage in collaborative scenarios with health plans—especially around initiatives such as ICD-10, payment reform and other care coordination.

Edifecs encourages provider organizations to team up with their health plan and other trading partners—to take advantage of potential cost savings and value upwards of $15 million.
