Fleming Gulf's - The LatAm Healthcare IT Summit 2014 to be held on 3rd and 4th April 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil is gearing up to what promises to be a converging platform for Healthcare IT thought leaders, architects, developers and solution providers to showcase their designs, ideas, concepts that have created benchmarks throughout the region. Currently, it is estimated that the Latam health care market is said to be the second largest of the Western hemisphere and corresponds to more than 40% of the total South American market and is now worth $45 billion which means, providing a robust IT infrastructure to support operations and facilities is of utmost importance.

Apart from hosting Chief Information Officers (CIOs) from leading healthcare facilities from Brazil and other LatAm regions, the summit will also host renowned industry experts leading the efforts on some of the biggest projects in the region.
