HIMSS Health IT Venture Fair – HIT Investment

I just came upon a really interesting part of HIMSS 2010 called the HIMSS IT Venture Fair. Many readers probably don’t realize my interest in Venture Capital, entrepreneurship and investing in general. Especially when it comes to technology investments. So, as you can imagine, this part of HIMSS really interests me. I hope that my HIMSS media credentials can get me in to this. Has anyone been to this before?

We’re about to enter an unprecedented time for investment in healthcare IT. There’s going to be a lot of investment, a lot of consolidation and I expect some really interesting new EMR companies who enter the market that we’ve never heard of before. Chilmark research listed 17 HIT acquisitions in the “white hot market for Healthcare IT.” Yet, this is just the very beginning of what we’re going to see.
