What are you looking forward to most?
MARTIN: I am looking forward to catching up with my friends, kicking off a new user group and talking with some new vendors at HIMSS. It is a great networking event.
What trends/topics do you anticipate will be a focus at HIMSS?
MARTIN: I would not be surprised if Population Health Management is a topic, but I would prefer Personalized Medicine. I will be chasing down Big Data as a topic as well. With MU3 on the horizon, interoperability should be at the top of the agenda.
If you could give one piece of advice to a first-time HIMSS attendee what would it be?
MARTIN: First-time attendees at HIMSS should enjoy the experience and not try to do too many events because it can be overwhelming. I would always say to wander the vendor areas, keep an eye on social media and don’t miss the social events in the evening despite tired feet.
