Not to be outdone by a robot-assisted ribbon-cutting March 4 to open the 2013 Intelligent Hospital Pavilion at HIMSS13, the RHCC Intelligent Hospital Awards Ceremony that evening was a huge attraction. And for good reason. This very important event gave recognition to just a few of those who have quietly pioneered the seamless integration of technologies to improve the patient experience and to help contain costs.
