I always enjoy attending the HIMSS conference every year. In particular, I find a wealth of innovation, creativity, and practical application when I speak with other attendees and exhibitors. This is why I spend so much time in the exhibit hall. Health IT is changing rapidly and we are seeing a number of organizations jumping into the sea of HIT. We are also seeing innovative start-up companies that are seeking to offer a new solution or build a "better mousetrap."
To connect with other physicians working in the health IT space, make sure you use Twitter and other social media tools. This is how I have been able to connect with so many other interesting individuals in the health IT industry. Today, I am sitting in a room full of physicians who are here attending the Physicians' IT Symposium. I also plan to go downstairs to spend time in the Health IT Venture Fair & Strategic Partner Forum.
This week, I will be providing coverage from the HIMSS conference on my other sites:
