At last year’s HIMSS it seemed that Emergin was everywhere. Every time I turned around there they were, providing the connectivity middleware for both medical device vendors and others. This year will be no exception, with Emergin appearing in 16 different booths.
It has also been announced that Johnson Controls (who is making a big push to broaden their health care presence) has made a minority investment in Emergin. I’m still waiting for Johnson Controls to actually list health care as one of their vertical markets on their web site. Emergin also plays a critical piece in Cisco’s Clinical Connectivity Suite offering.
UPDATE: Someone from Johnson Controls was nice enough to provide me with a link to the health care section of their web site today. Thanks!
