While two weeks has passed, the memories of HIMSS16 still linger – especially with those of us involved with creating, producing, and/or processing content and information amongst the traffic jam of vendor signage, booths, and giveaways crammed in each exhibit hall (respectively, of course).
The good news about conferences is that you don’t have to be present to benefit from many of the ideas shared during keynotes, presentations, and pitches because your social-savvy friends likely shared video footage of the actual event in either real-time (Periscope) or near time via Twitter, YouTube, etc.
Luck has it, thanks to the hundreds of friends who attend and utilize the #HITsm tag on twitter, a social archive of HIMSS videos offer visual reminders of how many smart people work in health IT, perhaps how sore our feet felt after the third day of cramming them in pointy-toed shoes all day long, and, if you happened to be featured on video, that you don’t quite look as young or as aerodynamic as you once did….
As many of you know, we held a successful “5th Annual” #HITsm at HIMSS event in the HX360 Innovation Pavilion with an all-star panel, consisting of Lygeia Ricciardi, Dr. Rasu Shrestha, Drex DeFord, and David Chou. After I provided a brief introduction, Mandi Bishop helped keep this rowdy panel in order as I played portable microphone hot potato between the panelists and those in attendance kind enough to participate in the conversation.
A special thanks to everyone on the panel and in the crowd who made this a fantastic discussion about innovation in health IT. We also owe a huge thanks to Mr. Workflow, Chuck Webster, who live-streamed and saved the full panel discussion video for everyone unable to attend. Another thank you goes out to Michael Gaspar from HIMSS for helping us secure the meeting location after our previous plans unexpectedly fell through.
