Q&A with Gil Alejo, exhibition manager, FIME

by Gus Iversen , Editor in Chief
From the July 2018 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine

HCB News: Can you tell us a little bit about the history of FIME and what the acquisition by Informa has meant for the organization?
Gil Alejo: Now in its 28th year, FIME has gone from strength to strength, particularly after the acquisition of the show by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, the world’s leading publishing and exhibitions company. Informa’s impressive track record of managing more than 26 healthcare exhibitions and more than 100 conferences yearly covering African, Middle Eastern, European and Asian markets has been a huge asset to the strategic direction of the show and as such, FIME continues to be one of the most important events to do business in the healthcare market in Latin and North America. Informa’s goal for FIME is to generate value for our customers and partners by driving further product innovation and deeper engagement in these specific markets.

HCB News: What kind of issues do you expect will dominate conversations at this year's meeting?

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



GA: One of the key themes discussed at this year’s meeting will be patient safety and quality control. In particular, the present and future directions of healthcare epidemiology and infectious disease, as well as quality improvement for hospital epidemiology and infection prevention programs. Chairing the patient safety program for 2018 is Kelly Pyrek, editor-in-chief of Infection Control Today Magazine, from Phoenix, Arizona; alongside activity director Anthony Warmuth, who is the enterprise quality administrator at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cybersecurity is another major conversation focus at FIME 2018. The Digital Healthcare Conference will offer practical advice on understanding updates in patient privacy and security regulations to ensure you are compliant, and will discuss the implementation of practical strategies to protect patient data and facilities from growing cybersecurity threats, among other topics. Attendees will hear from industry experts such as Sanjay Deo, who is the founder and president of 24by7 Security, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Seth Cutler, the vice president and chief security officer at Allscripts in Raleigh, North Carolina; and, Kelly McLendon, who is the managing partner at Compliance Pro Solutions in Titusville, Florida.

HCB News: For first time attendees, what advice would you offer to make sure they make the most of their time?
GA: The first thing to do would be to sign up for FIME before July 17 and gain free access to the show. This can be done via www.fimeshow.com/visit. We have also signed up with our official housing partner onPeak to offer assistance and preferred rates for attendees who require accommodation in Orlando. We recommend that this be done as early as possible to secure discounted hotel rates.
