Article by Jessica Kim Cohen.

The cancellation could have a significant financial impact not just on HIMSS, but also on participating companies.

“This is going to have a huge economic impact, for both big companies and small companies,” said Pam Arlotto, president and CEO of healthcare consultancy Maestro Strategies. “For a lot of people, this is where they touch base with their customers and do a lot of their business development.”

This will be the first year Arlotto hasn’t attended the conference since 1982.

“I wish we had all known this about a week ago, ” she said of the cancellation. “It probably is the right thing to do, but I think a lot of us were going to go and risk it.”
