Physician executives here at #HIMSS10

I'm trying to make the most out of every possible networking opportunity while I'm here at HIMSS10. This includes physicians who are no longer practicing medicine full-time because they're busy with non-clinical responsibilities or non-clinical careers. Here's a list of some of the people I've had a chance to meet while I've been here at HIMSS10 so far:
  • Daniel Palestrant, MD; Founder and CEO of Sermo
  • Adam Sharp, MD; Chief Medical Officer of Sermo
  • Val Jones, MD; President and CEO of Better Health
  • Steven Henkind, MD, PhD; Principal at the CCI Group 
  • Glenn Laffel, MD, PhD; Senior VP of Clinical Affairs at Practice Fusion
There are certainly many more physician executives attending HIMSS10 (but I won't get a chance to meet all of them). Here are a few other names you'll likely recognize:
  • David Blumenthal, MD, MPP;  the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology
  • Mark Leavitt, MD, PhD;  Chair of the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).
  • Sanjay Gupta, MD; Emmy®-award winning chief medical correspondent for the Health, Medical & Wellness unit at CNN
I look forward to hearing from Dr. Blumenthal tomorrow and from Dr. Gupta on Thurs.

Special thanks to HP for sponsoring me to attend and blog here at HIMSS10.
