Winner will receive $5,000 for charity, HIMSS Foundation scholarship fund

CHICAGO, Ill. (April 12, 2015) emids, a provider of information technology services to the healthcare industry, will host its first HIMSS CXO Fitness Challenge during the HIMSS Annual Conference in Chicago this week.

Syncing an emids-developed app with wearable Fitbit devices, healthcare executives from around the country will track their steps over a two-day period beginning 6 a.m. Monday and ending 6 p.m. Tuesday. On Wednesday, the participant who has walked the most steps throughout the period of the competition will receive $5,000 to be split between a charity of choice and the HIMSS Foundation scholarship fund.

“Our inaugural HIMSS CXO Fitness Challenge serves as a meaningful reminder of how wearable technology is helping shape the healthcare landscape,” said Michael Hollis, emids SVP of Business Development. “Technology has made it easier than ever to promote fitness and encourage consumer behavior tied to healthy living. That’s the direction healthcare is headed, and we believe emids is positioned to help drive that evolution.”

A leaderboard at the emids booth will track the competitors’ standings. Updates will also be provided on social media with the hashtag #CXOchallenge.
