Connecting with physicians at #HIMSS11

This year at HIMSS, I connected with a number of different physicians. Here are some examples of physicians I met in Orland during the annual HIMSS conference:
  • Robert Rowley, MD (Chief Medical Officer of Practice Fusion)
  • Andre Vovan, MD, MBA (Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Mitochon Systems)
  • Jonathan Bertman, MD (President of Amazing Charts EHR)
  • Nick Van Terheyden, MD (Chief Medical Information Officer at Nuance)
  • William Cast, MD (CEO of
  • Steven J. Davidson, MD, MBA (Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine at Maimonides Medical Center)
  • Rodrigo Martinez, MD (Senior Manager at Clinovations)
  • Homero Rivas, MD, MBA (Surgeon at Stanford)
  • Christopher King, MD (Surgeon)
  • Geeta Nayyar, MD, MBA (Principal Medical Officer at Vangent)
  • Toussaint Ward, MD, MHSA (Medical Editor at PEPID)
  • Dan Peterson, MD, MPH (a physician entrepreneur)
  • Howard Follis, MD (Founder of UroChartEHR)
  • David Faber, MD (Surgeon at Bedford Surgical Associates)
There were a number of other physicians, but I didn't collect business cards from everyone.

I spent a lot of time networking while I was at HIMSS. It's always nice when you can finally put a face to a name, an email address, or a Twitter username. I enjoy meeting new people and facilitating strategic networking opportunities. 

If you're interested in a career in health IT, make sure you're actively expanding your social network to include physicians who work in this industry.
