Home Health Tech WINS again!!!

I saw this today and realized how much our home health technology industry is grabbing everyone and DEMANDING attention!!!


3 Things we Learned at EHX

1) Size doesn’t necessarily matter

Ok, so you have probably heard by now that this year at EHX Spring in Orlando was much smaller in size than previous years. You also may have noticed that many of the larger players in the industry were a no-show. So as you might expect, there were those who felt disappointed. In contrast, our opinion is that despite its overall size, the show was packed with quality attendees and motivated exhibitors, most of which were eager to continue advancing an industry comeback from the darker days of the recession. So all in all, we say it was a smaller yet ‘different’ show… and we mean different in a good way.

2) New opportunities will boost the industry
If you’re not paying attention to Digital Healthcare, Digital Signage, and/or new retrofit opportunities, maybe it’s time you should. A clear winner of attention at the show was the New Opportunities section which featured a host of new technologies and ideas to expand the dealers list of services. We get a very strong impression that the days of ‘Entertainment’ being the number one driving force behind the industry are numbered. We live in a time where practicality is playing a much larger role and this is where services such as Digital Healthcare and Security begin to expand their share of the market.

3) Dealer-to-Dealer panel discussions were a big hit

Now, if you attended the show and didn’t sit down at one of the many Dealer-to-Dealer panel discussions… then yes, you likely did walk away thinking EHX wasn’t worth your time. On the other hand if you did take advantage of the included discussions and presentations, then you may have taken more from this show than any other in the past. The show featured everything from Targeting the Retrofit market to Getting Started in Digital Healthcare to EPA Lead Paint Training and many many others. Not surprisingly, these discussions were very popular and very well attended.
