My how time flies!
The Health Information Management Systems Society (HiMSS) 2017 Conference and Exhibition launches this weekend in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center. The city of Orlando is one of a handful of alternating venues that can accommodate the expected 41 plus thousand participants who’s passion and life’s work centers on demonstrating the value proposition of health information technology to enable the seemingly elusive sustainable healthcare economy that ALL Americans both deserve and need.
Last year’s host city was Las Vegas, the year prior Chicago, and in 2014 it was Orlando, while in 2013 the ‘big easy’ home of the New Orleans Saints, Bourbon Street jazz, the Mardi Gras, and technology/public health evangelist Karen B. DeSalvo, MD, MPH provided memorable experiences for many. Experiencing ‘HIMSS’ (some have dubbed it ‘HIMSSanity’) is a must for anyone who embraces contributions from the ‘connected healthcare ecosystem’ and values technology as the great enabler that remedies chronic obstacles to the ‘triple aim’ – better experience of care, with improved outcomes and lower per capita costs.
Health Innovation Media has covered HIMSS since 2010. Our presence and trend setting digital media coverage leveraging a unique combination of subject matter expert social, audio and video at HIMSS 2013 in New Orleans under the previous banner of the ‘Health Innovation Broadcast Consortium’ (HIBCtv), generated over 300,000 viewer minutes via live streaming of interviews and select exhibitor booth visits (still streaming here).
Last year we co-located our live audio broadcasting efforts with Conversa Health (follow on twitter via @ConversaHealth) a market leader in the emerging digital health checkup and patient engagement space – see select video interviews here and our impressive guest line-up here.
This year we again put our studio on the ground at HIMSS via ‘This Week in Health Innovation: LIVE From HiMSS17’ broadcast with our friends at Conversa Health, specifically co-founders West Shell, III and Phil Marshall, MD, MBA.
