Reflections on another year at HIMSS

As HIMSS 2013 has come to a close, I’ve had a chance to look back at the experience of the last few days. I’ve been going to HIMSS for over 15 years. I can’t remember one where I didn’t learn things, meet new people and get excited about the innovations in health IT. However this […]

Continued high activity at HIMSS

While many people likely left after Monday it hasn’t been obvious from the crowds on the exhibit floor and hallways.

First day of HIMSS review: Analytics, Crowds, and Catching Up

Yesterday was the first day of HIMSS and, as usual, it was extremely busy. In my experience, Monday is the busiest day since you have people who attended CHIME or came in early for pre-conference sessions that wanted a day on the HIMSS exhibit floor to meet with vendors and look at the new products. […]

When wandering through the large HIMSS 2013 exhibit hall in New Orleans this year, I am inspired by innovation and the impact of mobile technologies on healthcare.
