Just in time for the season of celebrations, the #HITsm Twitter community, focused on creating discussions on Health IT, has announced its 2011 Top #HITsm Contributors list. The list is broken into Individual Contributors, Organizations and Publications. Perficient Healthcare, under the Twitter handle @Perficient_HC, is proud to be recognized in the Organizations group for its contributions. Also, Perficient’s own Melody Smith Jones was recognized as an Individual Contributor under her handle @MelSmithJones!
So, in the spirit of celebration, we would like to recognize some of the individuals we have had great #HITsm interactions with in 2011, some from the HL7 Standards list, and some of our own.
@OchoTex – One of the faces behind the list. While obviously not included, he has been the man behind many of the weekly #HITsm chats, responsible for engaging this great community.
@NateOsit – Never afraid to voice an opinion during weekly #HITsm chats, and always on the ball with news! Great at starting discussions, collaborating, and getting exciting conversations started.
@motorcycle_guy – The #HITsm resident standards expert who posts great content under his own blog that gets everyone thinking.
@techguy – Blogger extraordinaire and all-around nice guy! Be sure to check him out at any of our healthcare conferences, and you won’t be disappointed.
@EMRAnswers – Great friend of Perficient and passionate health IT advocate. Each family has a glue that binds them; she’s ours.
@TheGr8Chalupa – Playful instigator of the #HITsm community. Who doesn’t love a lady who likes black coffee and dark beer?
@MelissaColeHTR – We think the future leaders of healthcare will be the RN’s and doctors that truly know healthcare technology. She’s one of them! Melissa’s positive attitude and encouragement have touched many members of the community.
@SmyrnaGirl – A passionate Health IT advocate. Make sure to check out her many articles on Health IT News.
@DrNanN – Feels like an old time friend at this point. Check out the numerous podcast interviews we did with @DrNanN on how Health IT connects her to her patients.
@ahier – When we think of Health IT leaders, we want to be Brian when we grow up! Check out our interview with him at HIMSS 2011.
@2healthguru – Curious about the latest news on ACO? Just ask Gregg!
@pjmachado – One of the few Health IT geeks that has as much to say in the provider space as he does in the payor space.
@janicemccallum – She fits the definition of Health IT influencer. Check her out in the interview we did last year at HIMSS on BI and Meaningful Use.
If you’re interested in becoming part of the #HITsm community these are just a few of the people we recommend engaging with. Also, join our weekly Tweetchats, starting up again in January 2012 – more information at http://www.hl7standards.com. Thank you all for such a great #HITsm year – we are looking forward to new faces and continued conversations in 2012!
Who have been your most valuable #HITsm contributors this year?
