I walk into HIMSS this year with a mixed set of expectations. With the public pull-out of several major vendors and the weak attendances we’ve seen at other conferences this year, I’m curious to see how attendance sorts out at HIMSS.
But, I’m more excited about the educational sessions at HIMSS than I’ve ever been ! In most years, there has been little in the way of consumer-facing technologies represented in the sessions. This year it’s overflowing!
On that list is the panel discussion that I’m co-hosting as part of the HIMSS eHealth Special Interest Group. I hope you’ll join us Monday, April 6th, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the McCormick Convention Center – Room W12AB.
Our speaker panel includes:
- Khaled Hassounah, MedHelp (http://www.medhelp.org/)
- Matthew Holt, (http://www.health2con.com/) and (http://www.thehealthcareblog.com/)
- Julie Murchinson, (http://www.health2accelerator.org)
- Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, THINK-Health (http://www.think-health.com/)
And keep an eye on Geovoices. Several of us will be posting throughout the conference.
