Healthcare IT and EMR Events

I’ve been looking over the next couple months and I realize I have more travel than I usually do. However, there are a number of events I want to attend and so I guess you got to do what you got to do. The good thing is that I love going to healthcare IT and EMR related events. I learn so much and meet a lot of really interesting people.

Here’s what I have on the agenda so far. I’d love to meet readers of the site at these events as well. So, let me know if you’ll be at the event or if you want to catch me before or after the event. (P.S. I posted something similar to this on EMR and HIPAA a while back, but the readership doesn’t crossover that much so I’m posting it here now).

Health Tech Next Generation – San Francisco August 12th – I’m actually doing an EMR panel at this event. Plus, I’m really excited with the meetings I have setup around this event. In fact, my trip to San Francisco is already packed. I’m also excited to see Guy Kawasaki speak in person.

Hospital and Healthcare IT Conference – Phoenix, AZ September 28-30, 2011 – I saw this conference and loved the Reverse Expo concept. Plus, I had an added interest in a conference like this since I am looking to dive deeper into the Hospital EHR world with my new site Hospital EMR and EHR. Katherine’s been writing over there for a bit now and she’s creating some interesting hospital EMR related content.

AHIMA Convention and Exhibit – Salt Lake City October 1-6 – I kept hearing people saying I should go to AHIMA. Well, it’s just up the road from me by where my folks live, and so I figured now was as good a time as ever to check out AHIMA. I don’t know what to expect really, but I’m sure I’ll learn a lot and get some new perspectives.

MGMA Annual Conference – Las Vegas October 23-26 – I can’t wait for MGMA to hit Las Vegas (my hometown). It will be my first time attending, but I’m excited to see all the EMR talk that’s sure to occur. Plus, I bet their exhibitor list will be right up my alley. I’ll be surprised if I make it to many sessions at all. I’ve been thinking of throwing a New Media Meetup at MGMA like I’ve done at HIMSS. What do you think?

There you have it. Any other conferences that I should try and squeeze into my plans? That’s pretty fully, but I could always be convinced for the right opportunity. I’m even talking to some people who organize a healthcare IT conference in Asia. I think a little international EMR and healthcare IT flare would be interesting.

I hope I get to meet a lot of readers at these various events. For those that can’t attend, I’ll do my best to bring you the best insights I can from each event.

  • Hi Rama,
    I’ll shoot you an email about the possibilities. There’s some people in DC that want me to come out there too. Maybe if we can pull it all together with some people from NJ/NY, then we could make it happen. It’s a long flight to only go out for one event.

  • Hi Rama,

    We’re an MSP company located in Florida, in the midst of partnering with specific emr software companies. As an IT company we would be interested in the possibility of joining these discussions as well. Please let me know.
