University of Illinois at Chicago faculty and staff had the privilege of meeting and interviewing a variety of C-level healthcare IT industry professionals at the HIMSS11 Annual Conference and Exhibition. HIMSS11 took place February 21 –24 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. During the last day of the conference, top industry professionals visited the UIC booth, to provide their insight into the rapidly evolving field of healthcare IT.
On hand were top industry consultants, chief executive officers, chief medical officers, recruiters, and managing partners, who answered questions concerning the current state and future of the industry. Some of the topics covered: the hunt for the right healthcare IT professional, the improvement of EMR usability, the movement to stage 2 Meaningful Use, healthcare & IT convergence, and many more.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the knowledge and expertise of these fascinating colleagues, paying particularly close attention to Carter Groome, CEO of First Choice Professionals and Healthcare IT Today blogger extraordinaire!
